How do you change the valve cover gaskets on a 1981 Ford?

Just did mine on my 300 cu in Ford 1982. Remove any parts that might be in the way, breather, gas line over the valve cover etc. Remove the bolts around the outside of the valve cover. Remove valve cover. Remove old gasket. Clean valve cover. Install new gasket and re-install cover. Replace bolts. Finger tight bolts first then tighten. If you do not have a torque wrench, carefully tighten down bolts alternating from one side to the other tightening them all down evenly. Do not overtighten, they will snap off into the head.

1983 AMC Concord 258 inline 6 it has a aftermarket aluminum valve cover I need to replace the gasket do you need a special type or can you just go to a parts store for one?

I had a 1983 AMC concord it was my first car. Finding parts for them even back in 1989 was tough because they changed their suppliers in mid production. My valve cover leaked oil because of a strange design on how they were fastened to the head. The bolts came out the top of the cover instead of around the rim. I managed to find a kit that replaced the head bolts that has threaded posts to fasten around the edge instead of the factory design. Until you change the bolts you will never get the cover tight enough to not leak. Trust me I tried. Unless your car has a different design, which is possible with an AMC of that year. Try to find one of these kits (they come with a new valve cover and the retro fit head bolts)and then replace the valve cover gasket. Be careful not to tighten it too tight as i did and cracked the cover which was plastic. The bolts should be tightened in inch pounds and not foot pounds. I did foot pounds and it cracked. Good luck! I liked that car it really was nice riding and had good power. I could smoke the tires pretty easily.
