Take the upper intake off on a injection engine, I know that. I use brake clean, rags to get the rails dry and use Fel Pro rubber gaskets glued it with Permatex non hardening aircraft sealant or 33 weatherstrip adhesive.

I've been meaning to replace the valve cover gaskets and oil pan gasket for a while now, but it seems like a lot of work. So hopefully, when I have a few hours to tear down the engine, I'll clean off the covers, replace all 3 gaskets, re-thread the drain hole in the oil pan, then repaint both the pan and the valve covers.
FYI FROM AMAZON YOU CAN BUY THE EXACT HEAVE DUTY VALVE COVERS LIKE IN THE VIDEOS I POSTED FOR 129$ A STEAL AND THE WARPING/ BENDING FLIMSY TIN VALVOVE COVERS CAN BE HISTORY AND THE GASKETS HE USED WERE AWSOME STEEL CORE--COATED IN RUBBER.

BEST WISHES

Holy thread revival batman!

For my 300, I have quite the setup on the valve cover. It goes like this:

Felpro rubber gasket, 1/4" aluminum spacer, cork gasket, silicone, cork gasket, valve cover. The corks are held in place well by slits on the valve cover. The corks were siliconed together to create one piece. I had to do all this to clear my roller rockers.
