Default Best way to remove a driver side valve cover?

Im almost done taking everything apart, I just need to pull off the driver side valve cover, and I know these are a pain in the ass, what is the best approach to this. Is taking out the hydrobooster the best option? How hard is it to put back together? Never took one apart so I dont know.

You dont need to take the hydroboost off. Just remove the drivers side motor mount and jack up that side of the engine.. Believe it or not you'll 'roll' the valve cover out. Takes some time but you'll get it

You need a Mike... Mike is highly capable of doing almost anything. He'll just grab some magic craftsman metal tool from the red dresser in the garage and make everything better!!!

ps: I will loan him to you for a nominal fee....

Ok even better. Do I need to disconnect anything else? Trans cross member to give it some extra play or the motormount is good? And how is it getting the new one back on, I dont wanna cut up the gasket on the sharp edges on the head? Thanks Kevin.

No you can leave everything else on. You might need to take a couple little things off when your in there. The new valve cover will go on easier then the old. Check the gasket to make sure you didn't cut it before you lock her down. Don't sweat it, when you get done you'll say oh that's easy

Kelly I'll take mike and the red dresser any day!
