is it essential to apply rtv sealent or is it not required when mating up cam cover with head, is just the origional cam cover seal sufficient.
the cover has a rubber seal, this is enough. if its old it will have solidified, replace it.
i had to take the cam cover off seal has only been on for about four months it isnt hard all came off in one piece can i reuse it or should i get a new seal.
if i need one should i only get a dealer part or is pattern ok.
just give it a nice wash in soapy water if its not split or hard. I think they're 14-odd quid from Vauxhall. (No sealant required)
