Getting ready to change the valve cover gaskets, I assume steel bolts, and aluminum heads. I didn’t see anything about using anti-seize compound, any recommendations?
thanks

Mickeytee, thanks for taking the time to set me straight, I would not have thought about the sealant. I have the pdf manuals, but don’t find the detail that I’m looking for. Thanks again
