yeh the ea's are a nice oil sprayer lol 3.9.. so it has the big tennis racket on top? Im not sure if the ef rockers fit.. i have a feeling tho they dont, but I may be wrong also - if they do u need to get an ef/el rocker cover gasket.. if its leakin around the gasket, any1 can correct me but would it b better to put an eb gasket on the ea or are they the same?

just a question. would an ef or el rocker cover fit in a ea? in sick of my one pissing out oil. and the ef ones are alot better designed


id try to get a late ED one, or XG ute one.
These are still the EB look, but have the half moons cast into the rocker cover.

This means you can still neatly run your ignition leads, without having them scrappy, or having to change to EL leads.

also, you will need to get the bolts as well as the rocker cover, as the earlier ones use a stud with a nut on the end, later ones bolt on

nah not that difficult dude.. Just gotta take leads off sparks (label em so u know which is which).. undo 3 nuts, take the cover off.. take gasket off, replace with new gasket and put new cover back on and do up. Hardest is probly just making sure U dont twist or pinch the gasket when ur putting it back on as it will leak or could damage it, but on hardness scale - 3/10 :P
easy DIY job
