I have a 94DT for my car...

The thing I noticed with them from 91 to 94 model head they change the front and rear where the half moons seals...

The 94 model heads have a wide lip at the bottom of the two half circles in the head to accommodate the skinny rubber that sits on top...

The 91 model heads has a skinny bottom where the half moon rubber fits over the head... if that makes sense... :?

Long story short, for a good seal it looks best to have a 94 rocker cover on a 94 head for a good seal...

A 94 rocker cover (half moons are steel) doesn't look like it will seal properly on a early model head which is skinny at the bottom, when you later head, with an early rocker cover, the half moon rubbers wont seal over the head as its too wide for the rubber...

If you have both 94 head and rocker cover... they will fit on your car no worries...

Well so my investigations determined when I was doing it... Now trying to chase a 94 model rocker cover... When I have the money... :roll:

Cheers,
Tim
