I'm in the middle of the same project as we speak. From what I experienced and gathered, they recommend you replace the spark plug sleeves anyway. I managed to nget it off myself, but I would recommend yanking them, it made the difference of me getting the cover off and not getting it off. Again, I was alone, but the gasket replacement kit includes the aluminum sleeves..... and the valve cover gasket and sleeves is about $40. Far less expensive then potentially damaging something trying to save them. Just my sorry opinion. Good Luck
