Keep an eye on that valve cover gasket. Is my experience, aftermarket gaskets leak. If you have to replace it later, I recommend getting one from Honda, and replacing the bolt grommets on the valve cover while you're at it.

I didn’t want to risk any issues so I ordered Honda gaskets.

Valve lash is the clearance (in hundredths of a millimeter) between the valve stem and the actuator, called a lifter. These Hondas have mechanically-adjustable lifters that need periodic inspection.
