its easy as piss.
remove the bolts from the rocker cover, pull out the breathers, leads, accellerator cable and choke cable.
theres a big rubber gasket in the rocker cover lid which is re-usable.
no sealer needed.

just realised you moved to perth. im from rowville, haha. saw you at domino's at stud once, asked about your body kit...

Its recommended to apply sealant to the 'half moons' in the ends as oil tends to find its way through there.

agreed there...

I think it was permatex ultra blue or the equivalent that should go there...or i might be wrong and got the water pump sealant confused with the rocker cover. Someone please correct me here :D
