Is a gasket required for the cylinder head valve cover on a 1985 Honda ATC200S? if so a possible part number or where I might find one or do you use a liquid gasket.

Thanks in advance for any help

Good morning, there is no gasket for the head cap, put a thin layer of liquid gasket on the mating surface, torque to spec., wipe off excess. Take care that you don't get any in the cam journals or the black rubber stopper on the head.

Also the most important process is to have clean mating surfaces .
I use Honda bond HT which is the OEM sealant .
