    What is the cost and do you think it is worth it?

    Around 13.00 for a seal & gasket set from Rock Auto, and it is worth some effort on my part to combat the sweat dripping off my nose. I'm no stranger to this car , replaced r/ head , bent valves on L / head , timming belt, brake controller,tie rod ends, maybe something else who knows .
