I just finished my first valve cover last night and I have a few questions about completion.
1) Lost a nut to the bay/ground (the one next to oil cap). Partially torqued the three to 35. Is this OK or will that warp my cover? When I get the new nut can I just add it or do I have to pull cover and start over?
2) Spark plug tube seals - How do I check if they are installed properly before I power up? If I need to redo these I want to know before I get oil everywhere. Tried replacing one boot and it fit tightly but I don't know if that's conclusive. One of these (#4 in pic) is installed slightly deeper than the others.
3) One of the humps (left) did not seat in the VC but the gasket fit perfectly otherwise. I was hoping torquing would resolve it but I don't know for sure.
