    Kohler Courage Valve C9ver Gasket

    SV600. Can I use black rtv on the valve cover INSTEAD of a new gasket like on Briggs engines or do I need to get a new gasket?

    Only if you never want to remove the valve cover without ruining it. The design of that cover is different than Briggs and if you go with a liquid gasket when you try to remove the cover later it will not come off easily. Seen it more than once and have had to replace the cover.
    This is only my opinion, and many will say it ain't worth a darn, as I'm only a retired grease monkey instructor and not a professional mechanic. Use what I post at your own risk as you know teachers only know book knowledge.

    The only place that ever gets silicone in my workshop is the crankcases of hand helds.
