All,

In the process of replacing my head gasket and, by the way, thanks to jcslocum and all contributors for the fantastic guide on the Spider Technical FAQ Digest!!

http://www.alfabb.com/bb/forums/943881-post87.html

I am at the step of removing the VVT and noticed the amount of oil gunk on the inside of the VVT an well as the amount of sludge going down the front of the engine.

Do not believe that any work has been done on the head previously, and did not see a gasket or Permatex seal between the VVT and the valve cover mount.

Should there be one? Can I put black Permatex there to hold it in place when I reinstall it? Should I use gray?

Thank you!

JP

Thanks, Vin. This is great!!! Thanks for the compliment on the car....bones are good and she looks good from a distance, really needs new paint.

Figured I should be able to drive it reliably before I worry about paint.
