I personally put on a new gasket anytime I remove a cover (or anything for that matter) of any sort. I don't like taking a chance doing all that work, putting it back together to find out you have a leak to end up having to redo it all. You could probably put some sort of RTV on the new gasket as well, but not sure what kind to use. I would think any of the high temp stuff would work, just like a valve cover gasket on a car.

Honda doesn't use a gasket on that model, just use a small amount of rtv to reseal the cover. Make sure to replace the dowels.

ok got the black RTV...

now it says dries in 1 hr, and cures in 24hrs...

so should i lay a bead and then wait 24 hrs or should i stick the cover on after one hour.

**** ...

ok i put the rtv on, assemble the thing, (clutch rod was a pain in the A**)

put all bolts in, and tighetn them several times due to them getin looser as the cover moves around.....

THEN BAM A ******* BOLT BREAKS OFF IN THE BLOCK.....

so im goin to wait and let the rtv dry and start it up, if it leaks if screwd if not then im going going to worry about tapin that bolt out.

any comments or concerns please post
