Default Valve Cover Gasket

Just making sure I do this right. Do I need any sealers to hold the gasket in the valve cover? Also, what are the torque specs for when I put the valve cover back on?

No sealants and 7ft-lbs of torque.

Just to let you know, Techinfo has all the torque specs you could want.

No sealers as mentioned.. however if you turn the cover right side up and the new gasket falls out a couple dabs of weather strip adhesive or rtv (longer time before it dries) works wonders for keeping it in the cover for assembly.
