I have a 1.8L 4-cyl. manual 1992 Plymouth Laser. What are the torque specs when replacing the valve cover gasket? And is there a particular tightening sequence I should follow? :screwy:

4-5 ft/lbs and start in the middle working your way out and around, like circular clockwise from middle out, and make sure the surfaces are spotless
, absolutely no oil or old gasket material left on either side
