What valve cover gaskets do you recommend...Rubber or Cork? My local auto store carries Fel Pro in both rubber & cork. The cork comes in 5/32, 7/32 & high temp...I read somewhere that cork conforms better to all the contours.

I use Mr. gasket cork... I found them better than the rubber a long time ago... (not sure if the rubber ones have improved)

I use a thin coat of blue Permatex sealer on the valve cover side with the cork and nothing on the engine side.  That way they stay in place and when I adjust the valves on my BB they come off with the valve cover and go back on with no trouble of aligning the gasket and no oil leaks.  GI JOE
