Which valve cover gaskets is everyone using with their respective turbo kits. I have vented my crankcase and I thing I am still getting oil leaks from the valve covers. Please let me know! Thanks in advance.
Resurrecting this thread because my #### still leaks. I have Polished Aluminum valve covers with -10 bungs welded in them with lines run to a breather tank. Using valve cover studs and the ford metal/rubber gasket.
Thinking of using RTV with bolts instead along with the gaskets....
i've been running the same ford one (metal w/rubber) for over a decade now and no issues but i run studs everywhere including valve covers and also have a small torque wrench so that they don't get over tightened as it doesn't take much.
is it always the same area leaking?
if so then that should be either the valve cover or cylinder head surface related, right? (thinking out loud here)
if not than gasket related?
have you tried running a thicker gasket?
I had to do this to my valve covers. Take your valve covers to a machine shop and have them put on a belt sander to make the sealing surface flat. The Ford metal and rubber gaskets will work fine with out sealer. I have one on my car thats fifteen years old, been off and on too many times to count. I never have any leaks.
