Howzit,

Don't grab the Razor Blade.
Grab your 8oz. Alignment Tool ( Ball Peen Hammer ) and TAP IT OUT.
1 ) Gently tap around the edges.
2 ) Put bolts in each bolt hole as you TAP IT OUT. To keep the gasket aligned.
It only took 3 min. to TAP OUT this valve cover gasket. WORKS GREAT.
Stop spending $$$ on gaskets.
Buy FEL PRO 26"x10"x1/32" Rubber Fiber Sheat for only $7 at auto parts stores.
Great for valve covers, cylinder base and intake gaskets.
May your oil never leak again.
Hope this info can help someone.
Here's some pictures

$4.99 at Amazon shipped if you throw it in the cart with your holiday shopping. (Add-on item)
It's a good tip. That's the way Dad taught me when I was a (much younger) boy.

Another tip - I sometimes use old rifle cartridge brass to punch nice clean round holes in a gasket. Though I understand in more civilized parts of the union specialty punches are available.

Same here with my Dad. I'd guess about 45 yrs. back.
