Sadly, many won't be eating a Christmas Ham in their homes this year in the Wine country.  :(

this is how messed up I am, the first image that came into my mind was a stage full of bad actors doing A Christmas Carol on fire.

Hmm, a Number Thirteen on a "Friday". Make it a Great day for your world. The media caves to superstition, don't they? ;)

Yesterday was the 50th anniversary of the death of Che Guevara. Wonder how many Cubans remember who he was. Bet Castro does.

If its a blue Felpro, no glue is necessary. The gasket is a life time rated one.
Its better to be a has-been, than a never was.

It isn't- its a thick black Mahle-I was told by the one parts guy I should use Permatex Ultra Black & another guy wanted to sell me RTV- This is my 1st use of non-cork & its a 1 piece - if you know the engine it has that arch in the front for the timing belt so i'm having trouble keeping it in place-so any help appreciated ;)

Most of the rubber valve cover gaskets that I recall (similar to the 2.3 engine) typically call for a sealant at the front, inner corners where it sweeps upward over the arch. In the past I have always used RTV. Love to buy the smaller tubes at the 99 Cent only stores so I don't wind up throwing 80% of it away when it eventually hardens in the larger tube.
