    Check the gaskets for cracks or hardening. After a valve job last year, the strbd. valve cover gasket leaked all over and I had to replace it; port was fine. I kind of figured the mechainic would check the gasket and advise me before putting it back on. At last check, I think I paid $16 for a gasket at North Harbor Diesel. The gaskets look like a normal flat one like on a car but they are pretty thick. The valve covers have a deep channel that the gasket is inserted into, leaving only about a 1/8 " thickness of material to make contact on the head.

    When you do it, try to keep O ring gasket in slot to keep it from expanding while opened up.

    "I was wondering if you can reuse the valve cover gasket on a 150 hino?"

    As one point of reference I have had the covers off of about 2 dozen Hino's for head torque and valve ajustments and have only replaced the gasket on one. Similar with the Weterbekes gensets except I have never replaced a VC gasket. FWIW - the gaskets are not 'marine parts" either.

    Hoe this helps

    Might be able to - might be just fine. But you won't know until it's all back together.

    Gaskets are consumables - I look for opportunities to replace things like that so I don't have to worry about them failing - which you know they will, at the most inopportune time...cuz it's a boat

    I was wondering if you can reuse the valve cover gasket on a 150 hino? If not I will try to get them before I start to set the valves. thanks Sid
