Victor Reinz nightmare! (oil leak)

I adjusted my valves a few weeks ago, and ever since I've been battling with a persistant and irritating valve cover oil leak. I finally the other day, used a little RTV sealant on the gasket..it still didn't stop the leak.....

has anyone else ever had trouble with Victor Reinz brand valve cover gaskets?

Make sure that you don't have an edge folded under and the head is free of dirt.

Thumbs up

VR makes a quality gasket. Is it overtorqued?
