valve cover gaskets?

Just bought new cork gaskets. Do I need to use silicone or that gasket glue?

for cork,
I put silicone on one side. ensure that its rough.
so, next time you pull the valve covers the gasket sticks to the valve cover adn not the head tearing it apart.

It's a chevy, it'll leak oil no matter what! And yes I owned SBC's for a couple of decades

Don't need to use silicone on any gasket, usually just makes them slip out of place. I use a very light application of weather strip adhesive to stick the gasket on (V/C's, oil pan, etc) and install dry. Yah it makes it a pain to remove the next time but that's what a die grinder and a rough buffer are for. Only need silicone where the gaskets aren't one piece - oil pan side gasket to rubber end seal or on some engines where intake makes up part of the valve cover surface.

I only use the silicone to keep it stuck to the cover. Not for sealing

high tack silicone spray is what i use, works great and is quick setting, little blue can, about 3 bucks at crappy tire spray a little on the surface of the valve cover and then stick the gasket on and let it dry then like jer said, next time you take it off it wont stick to the head either
