Well I screwed myself: the gasket was so brittle and baked onto the valve cover that I broke the cover. I'd been working on it for over an hour and I was on the last round gasket in the middle of the cover when I broke the thin plastic wall of the cover that the coil sits against. Ordered a new one and covered the whole motor up with blue shop towels until I get my new one. Sucks but I guess that's part of the DIY journey... Hope I get it Tuesday so I can put it back together.
