    What is involved in changing the valve cover gaskets on a 6.2? Do I need to pull the intake then the injector lines to do it, or is there an easyer way?

    nope, there is no easier way. I am really kicking myself for not replacing mine when i did the pump, cause 3 days after i got it running again, the valve cover gaskets started leaking. /forums/images/graemlins/mad.gif I am just going to wait to do mine until i get new injectors.

    When I did it I just carefully bent the lines and removed the cover that way.
