    I know it sounds stupid but with all the manuals i got here it doesn't say anywhere that i need to put down some RTV seal for the valve cover.

    Got the new seal but does anyone know if it does take RTV?

    I put RTV on the sharp corners for the cams, but that was it. I did it that way on both of my GT's and have not had a leak from either one yet.
    I looked in the '95 FSM, and all it says to do it install the gasket and tighten to 43-78 lb/in.
