As all say use the AU head gasket but if you cant get one monotorque are ok. The head bolts get them from Bursons cost $25 but the gasket kit complete i got from the same place that did my head cost $80. The kit contains exaust manifold gasket, head gasket, o rings for heater pipe, rocker cover gasket and seals for bolts, gasket for the split in manifold and other bits n pieces. thats for an el though.
Its also a good idea to have the radiator professionally flushed whilst the head is being done.

I don't know about other auto stores, but at Repco the heagasket for EF is the same as AU. And they are both the metal ones. Head bolts should be too expensive, worth replacing.
