      or use paint or photos (free on your PC) and simply re-size to between 20 and 25%)

        Good info guys I'll look into resizing the pictures. I live in Las Vegas Nevada and they basically closed the whole city I wish they would push us to go to the lake instead they closed it if I want to get on the water I'll have to go all the way down past Davis Dam passed Davis Dam into Laughlin. So I just went to O'Reilly's to get the valve cover gasket and they have two different numbers a felpro 17900 and a Fel-Pro VS13197C both of these caskets look identical right down to the color striping on them they are both made out of cork however one is $11 and one is almost 20 the 17900 says Marine I can't see spending $9 more if it's the same exact gasket anybody have any insight on this?

          the marine label is higher priced in this case.

            Okay great I'm going with the lower-priced option.

              The marine gasket uses marinized cork impregnated with Monel and Molybdenum Disulfide... If you don't use this, your boat will explode!
