RE: [DML] Valve cover gaskets



I bought the B28F gaskets at Advance Auto Parts when I was in a pinch once.  
They fit perfectly and are made with a nice slick coating.  After 10K miles 
when I pulled the covers to do a valve adjustment they just came right off 
and didn't stick a bit and were perfectly reusable.  I coated em with a 
little bit of oil as always but they really didn't need it.

After the easy off on my former car another owner wanted the gaskets when we 
pulled his covers.  It took us some time to completely scrape off the old 
paper gaskets and he's really excited about never having to do that again.
