I got a few seeps in my gasket and I am going to order a valve cover gasket set. I wanted to asked before I ordered but has anyone used aftermarket companies for gaskets. I am looking at a company called Stone here. I would feel better with oem but I figured it would be expensive compared to this. What are your experiences?
fel-pro is crap the gasket itself is fine but when u flip it over to put in on the gasket likes to fall out. ive reused my oem gasket like 20 times best thing ive found is to just lay a thin layer of honda bond all the way around the lip of the head then pull the gasket on that itll seal it up nice.
add me on MySpace CAPTAIN HONDABOND SAYS: when leaks are causing you stress, just hondabond that mess!
nice to know you guys are re using yours w/ no problems. I've wanted to install my other VC but been to lazy and cheap to buy a gasket. I've re used one before but it was only like a month old or less.
Anyone know the size of the hose that goes to the breather I believe is what it's called. Mines stuck and I just want to cut it off and buy a new one. Thanks
I noticed a lot of people are saying they re-use their gaskets. While most of us are known for doing repairs the "Old fashioned" way I would like to just point out that the proper repair and maint. on valve cover gasket replacement is when ever you take the valve cover off you are suppose to replace the gasket every time. Just FYI.
ive used fel-pro with no problems whatsoever, just used sealant around the head and under the v.c and you're fine, it doesn't "like" to fall out once it's seated correctly. Mine had to be replaced but they can be re-used if you're gentle
