As far as I know no. The EF/EL one is different to the previous models one. It's a skinny one, and dips down at the front and back for the half moon shape of the rocker cover there.

your better off getting gasket in the tube, works alot better than what a normal gasket would, plus you can put as much on as you want, they sell it at repco, so exchange.

Gasket goo is a bit of a last resort... use a new ED one and you wont have any dramas... just make sure it stays in the groove at the back of the cover

I got an ed rocker cover gasket from ford a few weeks ago and the guy told me that they've combined the half moon things INTO the gasket.. so rahter than getting a gasket and 2 little half moon mibobs, its just the one piece now. Put it in last night, seemed good ? :?

edit: i got my gf's dad to do it/help with the gasket and he put a bit of silicone on the half moon bits, but apart from that it kinda clips onto the head so shouldnt need it.
