Re: Best SBC Valve Cover Gaskets
I usually do the cork; small amount of RTV on valve cover side, and plenty of wheel bearing grease on head side. After heating up and running, the grease makes the cork VERY pliable/soft and allows it to form to the head. When you go to remove them, they pop right off, instead of sticking, tearing, and making mess.
I'd like to say it was my idea, but someone much smarter told me; works great.
