Wouldn't a rocker arm carrier box be a valve cover?

Actually NO. The rocker arm carrier box is secured to the cylinder head by five cylinder head bolts and eight carrier box-to-cylinder head bolts (or two carrier box-to-cylinder head bolts if late model year or updated heads installed). This means the head gasket would have to changed as well in order to replace the carrier box gasket. The valve cover gaskets on a 6.0L are reuasable. Out of the hundreds of 6.0Ls I've had apart, I have NEVER had to replace the valve cover gasket.

Ford Diesel/Senior/Master Tech who placed 2nd overall in Ontario on the Fix-It-Right-First-Visit score for 2010

....who works at a dealership that now employs SOME half decent looking female employees since they overhauled most of the administrative staff

....but STILL loves hot women with big boobies

....and STILL hates working on E-Series with 6.0L
