1.If so equipped, disconnect the choke cable and the air bypass valve cable.
2.On carbureted models, remove the air cleaner. On fuel injected models, loosen the clamps and remove the air intake crossover.
3.Disconnect the PCV valve at the cover.
4.Remove the retaining bolts and remove the cam cover.

5.Clean all gasket mounting surfaces. To install the cover, first install new gaskets.
6.Place the cover in position and tighten the bolts in several stages, going back and forth across the cover, tighten to 26-35 inch lbs. (3-4 Nm).
7.Once all the associated components are installed, start the engine and allow it to reach normal operating temperature. Retighten the bolts. Check for leaks.
