How much labor in a valve cover gasket change?

I have a bad oil leak on my driver side valve cover and was wondering how hard of a job that is to change the gasket out, thanks.

Valve covers are easy, especially the drivers side. Probably about 10-15min. job your first time around, once you done it before you could pull it, install the new gasket, and bolt it back down probably within 5min. The gaskets on the valve covers and just a rubber/foam that pops into a recess within the cover, so its not hard at all. As simple as unscrewing four bolts. Hope this helps.

Not sure if I had to, but it seems like I remember removing the AIR diverter from the exhaust manifold to get the cover off. It can be troublesome if it is stuck. Definite anti-seize used when putting it back on.

Someone having a 428 r.w.h.p. car and not being able to change the valve cover gasket, is just not right!

It took me longer to find the right socket than it did to change my both my gaskets.

I'd charge you a slice of pizza and a can of coke.
