Talking Ready for my first repair

Just ordered 6 new spark plugs, a valve cover gasket, and 4 rocker shaft plugs from Pelican Parts. Just waiting on them to arrive and I can finally do my first actual repair/maintenance check up on my car Is there any specific reason as to why Pelican Parts said I should get the rocker shaft plugs with the valve cover gasket? I'm thinking it's just might as well do it while you're in there, right?

Im doing mine now. The plugs fit in the head and look real easy to replace, so why not!

they just pull up and out after the valve cover is removed. really easy and painless. changing the plugs is harder.
I know a lot about cars. I can look at a car's headlights and tell you exactly which way it's coming
