Do you mean the eb-ed, or the ef/el. To answer your question, both will work. If you use the ef/el one, make sure you put plenty of silicoln at the front and rear to stop oil leaks.

You want to watch the throttle cable positions, unless that's the reason you're changing it?

I have been thinking of an AU cover myself, they look similar to the EA/D cover, and suit the BBM that i want.
:p
well if you ever change it i will buy your Tickford one you currently have.

werent the AU Tickford covers just a standard AU one painted red??
we get AU tickford motors in at work and all they do is paintstrip them and repaint them a dodgy bright red colour. bit of a waste really.

I went the opposite way EA cover on EF head, problem is fitting the gasket on as the EF head is thicker around the cam plugs.

that would be off an EB/ED XR then. the last of the ED had the half moons at the front. you might have seen that one. unless your talking about the AU VCT one. they had a tickford badge but it was on top of the head not the rocker cover.
