Rob,
I haven't done it yet, but plan to soon. The rubber gasket material dries out and cracks with age. I haven't heard about the locktite or if it is compatible with the gaskets. I notice the bad idle with the cold weather until the engine heats up and everything expands. Looks like it should take about 4-6 hours. At the same time you should change out the valve cover gaskets too.
