So I have been reading the 84 FSM and the Haynes manual. Both mention the use of rtv sealant when replacing the valve cover and timing covers. I have read here on the forum that people have used real gaskets. What is the best practice? What are the pros and cons of each?

I have used quark gasket, felpro gasket and RVT silicone. I had pretty good luck with the high temp RVT silicone.

I used a Felpro rubber gasket on my valve cover. After proper torque, I have no leak issues. Too little torque, and it won't clamp down well enough....too much torque and you risk warping the base of the valve cover. I didn't replace the timing cover, so I can't help there.
