That gasket was one of those things Kohler couldn't make up their mind on. The went from the cork gasket to RTV and then back to the gasket and then back to RTV. I had a few where the two halves that separate on the valve cover would vibrate and break the RTV sealant causing a leak.Scrubcadet, First why you still using the cork gaskets? These covers sealing have been changed over to RTV sealant since 2014. See Kohler SB-325. when properly done the RTV is a lot better at not leaking over time. The only exception in when the muffler is directly mounted to the cover which there is an improved cover for that too if the old cover is being used.
And yes youtube is one of the scripts that run on Partstree. I have it blocked.

For Google I don't see many ads but is probably because I have their tag manager blocked too.
I recommend changing from Ultra Black to the Kohler Instant Gasket that Loctite makes or 3 Bond that Kawasaki Engine uses....I use both and in 10 minutes you can start the engine.because I get the occasional person who needs it back yesterday and fails to bring it in before it starts dripping oil everywhere instead of weeping out.. So I put I cork one on and get them on their way. But I do RTV others who have patience. I always let the RTV (Ultra Black ) sit 24 hours for a full cure before use, so I keep 3 or 4 of the cork ones on hand.
