So the gasket keeps it for leaking. ...sorry want to just super clarify before putting it back on without oil leaking lol

Yeah...it is a gasket :giggle: I've reused mine multiple times with no issues :hiding: Obviously if the gasket is damaged in anyways, replace it. If it looks fine, reuse it :shrug:

If the gasket is rubbery and pliable then it's fine to use, but if it's brittle and you see some cracks then replace it. Pretty simple :)

So just finished putting my vavle cover back on...I used a new gasket and applied sealant along the corners. It was sitting in my garage and I notice to small drops of oil on the ground...is that normal to have it leak a little bit after removing the valve cover for some time.

Could have dripped when you removed the valve cover...idk....look around see if you can find where it's coming from.
