Hi Sgul. Looks like the 4 round seals in the bottom right corner of that gasket kit picture are the ones. But it also includes entire valve cover gasket/seal set.
OK, you da man, you've done them.

Okay thanks ukrbyk. I'll pick up a gallon of gas with that. Hey but I wonder if that cheap five-dollar gas I've been buying has been fouling my plugs.

Ukbryk, in regard to your comments, post #35 and post #30 respectively, this thread:
Also, why does that gap look so large? Not saying it's not proper, just looks truck large.
Those gaps ain't no 1mm. I KNOW what 1mm is.
I got around to checking the gaps on those old plugs of mine. Gap spec for my vehicle specifically is .039 to .043 (or 1 to 1.1 mm). Gaps on my old plugs measure .053 (or almost 1.35 mm). I've tossed 'em, and replaced them with new ones of which I've carefully gapped to .040 before installing (something I should've done a long time ago). I just thought it appropriate to update the issue/thread here in that regard.

Yeah. NG. Actually, NGK (brand), but yeah in this condition NG NGKs.

OMG $5 gas? We're at $2.75 down here.
Fortunately my community here has only 14 miles of road, so no long commutes etc at least. Short driving trips from here to there, always. And actually that picture I posted wasn't truly from my community but just my idea of a joke (just googled and found/posted the high-price gas sign). But in reality ours here is now at $4.089 currently.

Why have I missed the updates to this thread? Odd...
Not sure, although my last post this thread (before today's recent update) was way back on Oct 29 (almost a month ago now) and I see your last post this thread was Oct 23.

Folks, he's just kidding. There is no $5 petrol a gallon regular in the USA now. Unless he lives somewhere in Sweden, but that's not what pic posted shows.

As long as our funny thread isn't "cross-threaded" we should be fine. Haha, get it? Pun intended.
