    I've found my rocker cover gasket is slightly leaking from one corner so have bought a replacment. Is if just a case of cleaning the surface and fitting the new on or is it best to smear some sealant on the faces to help thing along . I know I used to along time ago but wasn't sure about the new stuff.

    Ok fitted the new rocker gasket . Haven't got a torque wrench so do I do the bolts up pretty tight ?
