I was wondering if any of you have had any experience with re-doing your valve gaskets. If so, how did you go about doing it? Any books that you can recommend for me? Thanks!

I replaced my valve cover gaskets a few years ago, I used Fel-Pro P/N VS 50088 R. These were Silicone I think, haven't had any leaks since, these are for the Aluminum heads with center bolt valve covers. Getting the covers off is not that difficult, just have to remove a few things to get the covers off the engine, nothing you can't do in an afternoon if you take your time.

I had mine off last summer. Re used the same gaskets. They are a silicone rubber type material. The key is not to overtighten them.
