Lift Bolts Question?

Is there any install guide on how to swap out bolts for new ones! I am going to do this in the next week, but I would like to know if there are any tricks to performing this task. I know that there are two lift bolts one on each cam rod. I ordered them from toyota for .68 cents a piece. Also when you put the new bolts in what should they be torqued too? My last question is should I replace the gasket between the head and the valve cover? I am thinking that I should, but let me know what you guys think about this install and if you have any tips or concerns please let me know!

Thanks

When I get my valve cover off I am going to spray it with wrikle paint too! I think it will make it look way better so I am going to give it a try.

you don't need to replace the gasket unless you mess it up. one thing to be careful of is the oil tube on the valve cover. I've seen people bend it or even break it when putting the cover back on.

it's a pretty easy install.

there's no specific amount listed in the TSB for the lift bolts. Just tighten em like you would anything else. thumbsup
