My 2 Favorite Tips/Tricks for Doing Honda Valve Cover Gaskets

by birtanpublished on September 16, 2020

Brian's mobile one I'm working on a valve cover gaskets is for a 2001 Honda Civic and the tricky things about this one are bite the bullet and undo the alternator cable the power cable and plug and get that wire harness freed up you do that you just can be okay

And there's a little clip here the rest of it's pretty cut-and-dry except for these crusty old bushings washers whatever basically these get soap crust you can't take them off without cutting them so just get pair of side cuts and

Whatever metal part comes off there you can see I split this one and then when it comes time to put them back together the new ones you want to wiggle it around a lot just like you're putting on a tire on a rim or something it is kind

Of turn them squish them around if you try to shove them through like I've tried putting a socket here and then pressing them with a bigger socket over the top and that just usually tears them up if your new ones are too stiff to get

Them on separate the metal from the rubber put the metal on first then put the rubber on by itself let's do one more just for fun I take these I'm not pushing down against the bear the shaft of the thing very hard at all you want

To stab your hand with your side cuts and just take a thumb on each side just push it off I didn't even cut through that one all the way then for this guy just kind of work it in a circle the easiest way I know of to do these I

Can't show you because I can't set the camera up there but you put in a socket on this side and you put the vise here and then make sure the vise is just barely on the rubber part and just worked the thing in a circle they just

Drop right through that's the easiest way I didn't take off I'm glad that one didn't go on and take the metal ring off if you're in a real bad way put some silicone lubrication on this edge here but these are supposed to be flat so

That they hold tight this surface here works kind of like a lock washer if you will and a stop just work it in a circle and your own let's do it again this never gets old does it with short ones are the tricky ones easier to put

On the harder to take off that should be easy what do you think of the two different kind the gloves on high fashion or what total and of each Clause try to recycle directly and get as much use out of
