That is GREAT !
I never ever relished the thought of gluing down valve covers. When I had the injector lines off of My truck, I did not remove and re-glue the covers just for that reason.
If I ever again remove the injection lines, I`ll be getting a set of these.

Yeah we have all just lived with having to glue them in the past. It was real hit and miss if you actually got them to seal.
As long as you use straight covers these new gaskets seal well.
I want to do my P400, Ill post a video when I do.

Im now recommending the use of a thin bead of RTV on both sides of gasket. Its a insurance policy so to speak. Its not a fun job to redo, so might as well do it. See vid on my site for info.
