Try again. The aluminum cover takes a specific gasket and the part number comes with the kit. For those who mentioned different bolts- The current crown kit includes allen head bolts.
I put indian head gasket shellac on the cover and the cover side of the gasket, let it dry pretty good, put the gasket and cover together, put grease on the head side of the cover and it sealed up nice.
I tried it with grease on both sides and it didn't seal at all in the half moon cutouts on the drivers side.
