Hia all, have just brought me new ute, but whilst I was looking for one.....

XG XR6 had two different rocker covers, early one front edge was straight, and I one I brough '95, has a dip in the in the front edge (Into the head)? if ya know what I mean.

Whats the difference?

Cheers, this is my first post, but will be on here more as I want to tinker.........

XG's produced during the ED run will have the EB/ED head (91AA cast in head front)straight rocker cover with separate half moons, early 94 models on (late ED) will have the 94AB head, rounded half moons cast, so rocker cover is one piece. Head is essentially the same bar those minor casting differences.

Your only issue is getting the correct rocker cover gasket if it ever needs changing. All you need to ask for is an EF/EL one.

EDIT: Being an XR, there should be a 'T' cast in the head front - the cast numbers will be slightly different, as the numbers above are for the std head, e.g. your's will probably have 94DT being a Tickford head.
