There are a few times when you should buy Ford parts, and this is one of those times. Buy Ford valve cover gasket, pn F57Z-6584-A, and you'll never leak from there again (unless you start really pressurizing your crankcase). The gasket will cost about $25. It's not cork and it's not just rubber, it's steel reinforced rubber. It's a really nice piece and very reusable, as long as you don't go RTVing it.Back to the Tech Articles main page
