Will it?

EL's dont seem to leak as much, the gasket is a better design i think.

the ea-ed gaskets have a little semi circle grommet where as the ef onwards they drop the cover into the hole, so aslong as you get a rockercover gasket to sute the cover it will fit

ok as i said in another thread, your best bet is to chase an XG or late ED rocker cover, as theres were eb/d style, but had the half moon cast in the rocker cover.

This means it will still have the eb.d look, and you will be able to run your leads neatly by using the retainers.

going to el you need to change to EL leads to make it all neat and tidy, otherwise run your leads higgeldy piggeldy !
