Put a smallest possible smear of RTV silicone sealant on the half-moon parts of the valve cover gasket. You do not want clumps of RTV in the oil system and clog the oil pump pick up screen.
Double check that the gasket is correctly in its groove before you put things back together. Do put the tank up on its strut and test run the engine...check for anything not connected and for oil leaks...before you put the plastic back on.
