What gasket needed when doing valve adjustment?

Postby ms2000 » March 15th, 2017, 8:44 pm

1987 4Dr Auto

1) Head Cover Gasket

2.1) Do I need "Spark Plug Tube Seal" aka "GASKET B, HEAD COVER (SUPERCEDED: 12342-PT2-000)"?
I am not changing the plugs - I have platinum sparks in there.
2.2) Do I need the "Top Grommets" 7 of them
Last time Tube Seal was changed 50k/14yrs ago

3) Some sell as a set - see link:

4) A video link that you might recommend?

Any other parts needed?

All years gen 1 Integras take the same kit. I would go and use the set with the gasket. grommets and stem seals. These only last around five years. Helpful hint. Inspect around the interface of the end cam caps and the head. Usually there's a dab of RTV there to help seal the cover gasket corners. Advise you to clean that out and apply another fresh dab at all eight locations.
