Guys, check this out, the damn seal won't sit right in the rocker cover. Wtf?

What have I done wrong? Do you have to shrink the damn things with water or something? Lol. There's a heap of bloody slack left, as you can see.

Thanks again to kutkustom, his wife and friend and mechanic, Joey for coming over tonight to help with head, rocker gear, cam shaft and timingy chain. Reallllly appreciate your help.

My good man Leroy got it for me, so I'm not sure. I'll check the packaging and see what is on it.

Thanks again Dave, you and the crew will have to come by one day/afternoon/night for a bbq by the pool.

OKay, here are the part numbers that were written on the two bags the two seals came in.

EE6020A = Think this is the little seal for the timing chain area on the block.

EF94481 = Think this is the seal for the rocker cover.

Done, was a weird a** thing to get it, but you were right lads.

Now my b**ch is getting the plenum champer to align correctly with the head while I try and screw the bloody bolts in. Oy, will it all just end already! lol.

Just a little off topic but did you get a new bolt for the cam gear cause they snap and cause lots of damage. When ever the rocker is of i always replace it if it hasnt been done and i replace it when it comes out.

Not an EA gasket, they were a flat seal with two half moon blocks for the cover ends.
