while i'm working on my water pump this weekend, i am also going to replace the valve cover gasket. i've searched the archieves but can't seem to find the answer. what should i torque the valve cover too on a 96' 4.0L?
also, i read several different methods of sealing the gasket in the archieves.
--some say to use the Permatex stuff on both sides of the gasket, other say just the cover side. does it matter?
--some say to let it cure for 15 mins, other say let it cure for an hour. which is it?
--some said to put the cover back on but only finger tight while the Permatex cures. othes say to let it cure, then put the cover on. which is it?
just a little unclear on a couple of things. thought i'd try to get them cleared up before i start. i hate doing things twice.
