Default valve cover gasket

I tried some sticky stuff but didn't work to glue gasket to valve cover. May try that 6000 glue which I use for everything. What has anybody else used that works. Thanks

I prefer to use valve cover studs and they hold the gasket in place with no need for any type glue or silicon. No clean up need when you pull the valve cover.

Have a treated rod that I was going to cut up and use as stud 4 1/2" (tall covers). But started to wonder if the stud would start to back out every time I take the lock nut off.

I been using the SCE steel core red teflon for two years with no issues, no sealers needed. I've tried many and these have worked the best for me, never leak and do not stick when removing the valve cover. I also use ARP studs for the valve covers.

I like the ARP valve cover studs you use a have place in the top to tighten them with a allen wrench and the recommend no sealant and have never come loose. I have cut and made my own and used just a drop of blue locktight and use double nuts to tighten them and had to take some of them out using double nuts I just give it a good tap with a hammer and they come right out. Its nice to just put your gasket on and set your valve cover on top not having to try and keep the gasket in place while lineing up the bolt holes.
