Hints - Gasket Replacement
My Jeep was leaking pretty good, so I decided to replace the oil pan gasket as well as the valve cover gaskets. Let me first start off by saying you get what you pay for. So, when I set out to get a full engine gasket set, I went with Felpro for the gaskets. They were bought by Federal Mogul a while back and can be found at the Federal-Mogul website. They are a quality gasket set and will be good for what you are trying to accomplish.
When applying RTV sealant, don't over do it, you only need a very very small amount to hold the gaskets in place. Too much will cause the gaskets to move around because everything becomes slippery. I learned this the hard way when I was putting on the oil pan gaskets the first time around and had to go out and get another set.

Make sure the holes line up as well, you don't want the gasket actually not lining up and sitting inside the area you are trying to seal. This will always cause leaks and that is what you are trying to avoid!
