Default Want a NON-LEAKING valve cover install on Toyota Cressida w/7MGE DOHC 6

Putting in valve cover gaskets on my 89 - 7MGE. Gasket seats in a
channel around the cover. Anyone know of any tricks for ensuring a
leakless install?

Thanks!

Hylomar seems to think they make RTV silicone,
kindly correct them at your earliest convenience.

apparently you're unaware that most of us just use what we can get at
the flaps. or online.

and would now be an inconvenient time to point out that with another
half-second of research, you could have found the information you were
obviously looking for but somehow overlooked at:

I looking for nothing but instead supplied incontrovertable
evidence via the manufacturer's website of the very product
you recommended both for and against.

You provide yet another pretentious, pointless, wholly
failed rebuttal, but I expected nothing less from you.

Should your confusion continue to persist, allow me
to quote from my aforementioned mfg's site: "Hylomar
RTV silicone sealants are used globally to seal engines,
gearboxes & transmissions by leading manufacturers".

should your idiocy continue to persist, allow me to re-quote what you're
incapable of comprehending:

' "hylomar".

avoid that rtv silicone crap like the plague.'

i would have thought "avoid silicone" would have been fairly
understandable. similarly, i would have thought that "hylomar" was
understandable given both the "avoid silicone" statement AND that you
/cannot buy/ anything /but/ their polyester sealant through normal
retail channels.

and failure to understand the two in context, in the same post? that's
just plain simple idiocy.

[and just in case you're /still/ too retarded to get it, read this:
<http://www.marcorubber.com/silicone.htm>

"Silicone O-Rings

Limitations: Avoid ... aliphatic and aromatic hydrocarbons (i.e.
fuels) and petroleum oils."]

So do some Toyota factory manuals recommend RTV silicone for valve
cover gaskets, like at the inside sharp corners and around half-moon
rubber plugs?

i don't know - but i'd guess from the way you ask the question that the
english version does. what i /do/ know is that silicone is unsuited for
long term oil exposure. and it has implications for oxygen sensors -
apparently silicone leaching into oil gets burned and on exit, poisons
the zirconia. [silicone is highly pervasive - it's a huge no-no in the
microscopy, mass spectrometry and chemical analysis world.]

honda recommends a non-setting gasket material for those locations, and
the polyester material that hylomar is made of meets that specification.
it also has better temperature stability, on both ends of the scale.

i've used it for many years and have never had a problem with it with
oils, fuels or coolants. unlike silicone where it may not seal [it
skins very quickly and this can be an issue] and can be a devil to remove.
