Question about Garden
I have a Troybuilt self propelled with a Honda GCV160 engine. There is an oil leak from the OHV cover. I removed the 4 bolts but the cover wouldn't come off. I looked at engine diagrams and there is no gasket shown. Are they sealed with "Form-a-Gasket? Will I need to destroy the cover and replace it in order to fix the leak?

You have to remove the spark plugs cables and remove the four nuts that you see when the cables are removed.
When the four nuts are removed, simply raise the valuve cover. When replacing the gasket, make sure you get the gromets as well. Those sometimes get worn or crack since they are more exposed than the value cover gasket. Make sure that you clean the cover from oil and replace the gasket with no use of silicon.

try removing the bolts hold on the valve cover and once you do that take a razor blade and a little lube and careful scrape the old one off.

make sure they are tight
could be time for head gaskets
make sure the old gasket from the old filter came off the block sometimes they come off old filter and stick this causes a leak due to improper seal.
