valve cover

hey i got a valve cover and i am having problems with the install, it ia used, but has your guys hardwear. the problem is that on the opposite side of the cam gears, there is a gap because that side is flat on the bottom where it meets the head instead of curved like the stock plastic one. is there a reason for this?

The spacer goes into the o-ring. You can't use the stock bolts, they're too long.
