Question What gaskets do I need for timing belt replacement? 2006 Vue 3.5l V6

Searched everywhere on here, no results. I'm using RockAuto. What gaskets do I need to order for the timing cover and related parts when replacing the timing belt? I'm doing the valve adjustment, water pump and plugs, so I already have the intake plenum gasket set and valve cover gasket set in the cart. No idea what I need for the timing belt.

Any help asap would be appreciated!

Also, what tools do everyone use to measure valve lash? Would a spark plug feeler gauge work, or is there a dedicated tool?

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

...THE TIMING COVERS HAVE RUBBER GASKETS ON THEM, UNLESS THEY HAVE DETERIORATED ,YOU'LL BE FINE, GM/HONDA IS THE ONLY PLACE THAT I'VE SEEN THAT HAS LISTINGS FOR NEW COVERS, NOT SURE YOU CAN JUST GET THE GASKETS, OTHERS WILL CHIME IN, HOPE THAT HELPS, DC

I recently replaced my belt and water pump. the belt covers already have gaskets built in and usually don't need to be replaced.

Good to know. I'll keep that in mind if I can't find gaskets or they're really expensive (still don't know what ones are needed, though...).

Any thoughts on tools to measure valve lash?
