Deluxe Sandwich Valve Cover Gasket, T1/2/3, PAIR are the best valve cover gaskets we carry! These gaskets have a 22ga water jet cut from steel sheet, with 1.5mm cork gasket on either side! The cork is glued with mil-spec adhesive, for the best you can get! The steel sheet prevents "gasket suck" 100%! Price is for a PAIR of gaskets to do one engine. Fit 40hp-1600cc based engines.

Most VW enthusiasts will agree that the #1
maintenance headache on an air cooled VW engine is valve cover gasket leaks. Ask anyone, they all have a special process, their "recipe" to prevent gasket leaks. RTV, windshield rubber adhesive, wheel bearing grease, white lithium grease, construction wall adhesive, super glue, LOL! You name it, someone has tried to put it on their VW valve cover gaskets to get them to not leak!

One solution is to weld or braze rails inside the gasket to keep the gasket from sucking in. That does work well, but this gasket is a "bolt-in" solution!

The actual problem is the gasket, which when made solely of cork has no support. Add oil and they slip in on deceleration, sucked in by crankcase vacuum. So the solution was to give the gaskets some "backbone", by sandwiching the steel sheet with a piece of cork on either side. So you can say "GOODBYE" to valve cover leaks! These gaskets have water jet cut layer cut from 22ga steel sheet for the middle, 1.5mm cork on both sides. The cork gasket is glued to the steel with mil spec aerospace approved adhesive (which means it's good stuff!).

All of this means that the gasket fits perfectly, and the top will not bow down, bottom will not bow up, and you can install your gaskets dry. No mess, no fuss or sacrificing chicken bones! The total gasket thickness is 3.94mm, slightly thicker than a stock gasket, so this makes your valve covers tighter than stock, with maximum sealing pressure!
