Repco or Bursons will be your cheapest place to get em. The ACL part number in JN532 or something like that.

I've now got an EFXR6 Head on my ED - but when I first did the BBM conversion it was with the original ED Head - the EF Rocker Cover fits the ED head no sweat BUT you should use a small file to round over the "corners" at the half round cutouts on the front and rear of the head as the EF cover has a rounded shape there but the ED head has sharp edges. The EF head has a broader "sill" but the ED sill is plenty wide enough - just make sure the cover isn't too far either forward or back that the seal has come off the edge.

I just used the std EF cover seal - ie. the grey silicon type one that presses into the groove in the edge of the cover. NOTE: If you ever have an old seal come out of that groove then it's definitely best to get a new seal - and also it's best to use a new seal anyway every second time you have the cover off else you'll get oil seeps. I guess if there's a rubber alternative seal then that might work better.

For the bolts that hold the cover on, I've heard of people fitting EF/EL type covers with the original ED style nuts - ie. using the ED studs that protrude from the top of the rocker gear - but those studs can be wound out quite easily so you can use the proper EF/EL cover bolts.

Each bolt comes as an assembly with a spacer and seals as part of it. There are two types of bolt - one has just a conventional bolt head - on the EF this is used only on the front hole (1 of 4). The other type of bolt has a stud protruding from the centre of the head - on the EF this type is used for the other 3 holes - the two rear ones hold the bracket that contains the grommet for the EF intake duct support peg to stick into at the rear of the cover - and the fwd one (second back from the front of the cover - ie. number 2 of 4 as counted from the front of the car) has a hex shaped post screwed down on that stud and supports the fwd mounting of the EF intake duct (a small bolt screws into the top of the post thru the top of the Duct).

For an EF cover on an ED engine - ie. not having to support the EF Intake duct - or I guess even for an ED engine with BBM and EL or BA intake duct then you would be looking to use 4 of the first type of bolt - ie. without the stud sticking out the top.

You need to fit those bolts with the large buffer seal that seats in the hole recess in the cover DRY but the small seal under the head well lubricated with grease or oil (else the small seal f**k out and you have to replace the whole bolt or use silicon sealant).

P.S. - EB series 2 = ED for all intent and purpose.
