Hi bud,welcometomyturbodies. Just buy a new gasket and replace it. Here's a good site for parts in the states.

The part you're looking for is a valve cover gasket. If you cant find it try emailing them or try a google search.:)
If you're still stuck then just post for more help.

Unfortunately, I think the ALH engine valve cover gasket is part of the valve cover! Are you sure it's not the Crank case vent tubing leaking? If you really do need a valve cover gasket you might be able to use some gasket maker but it'll make a mess.

Over here I occasionally use the clear silicone sealant which is good stuff, a lot less messy and nice and sticky. You can even put a light smear of oil on one surface first so it's easy to take off and put back on. Only the clear one though, for some reason the coloured ones are just nowhere as good.:)
