Well rang a local dealer today just to enquire about a rocker cover gasket price ,bloody hell 72.00 au glad it isnt a common thing to do cant believe the price of it . As far as im aware you are supposed to change it when you do the valves thank christ you only have to do that every 24,000 km .

After three valve checks, I'm still using the original gasket with no leaks. However, removing the spot of RTV applied to the corners by the caps is more difficult, and the gasket is not as compressible as it once was.

What was the state of play with your valve checks? any adjustment required?
