Hey Guys,

I have not doit this yet. I have a pinch nerve in my back that is killing me and if my wife see me working on my car, she will scream!

But you can download this Word document and you will find the Torque and sequence for the valve cover

Good luck

Isaac

Just replaced mine this last weekend, used the Haynes manual....and what do you know? it didn't say anything about using form in place gasket for the two spots like the drop box attachment turboboss posted. Looks like I'll be redoing it and adding some sealant.
