I am switching everything from the old motor to the new. I have a few questions. Are the valve cover gaskets re-useable? If there not re-usable is there any problem with using felpro gaskets? What should i use to seal all pipe/fuel fittings going into the block? And Every fuel line i took off had a rubber gasket in it that seemed to get F'd up... whats the best way to set this up. Also, One of the Injectors Has the code AE on it and two big LL. Any ideas? Thanks:ford:

Valve cover gaskets contain the wires for the glowplugs and injectors so they are expensive and reusable. Don't know what the factory used to seal threaded fuel fittings but I used regular teflon tape when I did my regulated return a few years ago and it's holding fine. IIRC there are a few lines that had orings so you just need to find the same size in a diesel safe version. AE LL sounds like a AE Long Lead injector that was used in the #8 position as a bandaid to correct Ford's screwed up dead head fuel system.
