Your thinking of the valve shims right? Not touching my valves. Everything I'm seeing on the Upper timing covers is grooved on the edges to accept new gaskets. With a little RTV added at the corners. I heard care must be taken to remove the lower cover lest you rip the bottom edge of the upper oil pan gasket. If ripped you've got to jack the engine up and loosen the steering box. So I won't be ripping that gasket you can be dang certain of that.
