CJ7 valve cover gasket. I have a choice between the normal not to expensive cork gasket. Or the expensive new synthetic carbon whatever fancy material gasket for the valve covers. I just want to know, has anyone noticed a significant difference?
 
well i put on a cork, till mine caught on fire b/c the valve cover had the slightest crack in the top, so i replaced it with a rubber one
 
I just had the head done on my 4.2 258 and put on a cork gasket. As luck would have it, it's leaking after only a week! It was probably operator error, but i wish i had spent the $ and got the better rubber gasket.:eek:
 
Spend the extra $$$ and get a good Fel-Pro gasket, it'll always save you money and heartache in the long run.

my 2¢
 
The cork has a tendency to squish and then dry out and in the process you have a leak :mad:
