The 22 pieces inside the upper right gasket are for the studs and bolts that fasten the valve covers to the rocker box.

The 4 pieces grouped in the center of the lower gasket are for the CCV black box, that mounts on the driver side valve cover.

The thick O-ring to the left of the 4 pieces inside the lower gasket, fits between the valve cover and the ICP on the passenger side valve cover...if it's a 2004.5 and later engine.

The 3 O-rings laid vertically in the lower gasket, are probably for; the oil fill tube passenger side, and the dummy plug in the driver side, and the 90 degree swivel on the black CCV box on the driver side.

The 8 small O-rings inside the lower gasket MAY be for the fuel injector harness plugs.

I don't know about the remaining 2 small ones in the lower gasket.

I appreciate the info. Makes sense.

Let us know how that job goes. I have just a little leak that leaves a drop or 2 now and then that I should tackle, but been procrastinating since I don't need to do anything else right now.

I’ll let you know how it goes. I had a pretty good oil leak and found who ever previously worked on the truck only got the valve cover bolts snug so hopefully I’ll see a significant difference.

The factory spec for tightening the valve cover bolts is fairly light.

Valve cover bolts .................................................. ..........72 lbf/in.......9 Nm

71 in-lbs or 8 NM.

(probably was just a typo, but 9 NM is closer to 80 in-lbs - over 10% high)

They had to be wrong. I could undo all the passenger side bolts by hand with ease. 4-5 of the back ones I could see the rubber washer was an 1/8” or so off the actual cover. I should’ve got pictures.

I didn't doubt you. Just letting you know 6 ft./lbs. (72 in./lbs.) ain't much torque.
