Does a 1.6 tappet cover fit a 1.8 or are they different?

I have a feeling the 16LF (1.6L) and the 18LE (1.8L) rocker/tappet covers are the same flange shape, so they should fit each other. I did a quick search for the gaskets and most part listings were stating both engine numbers. I'm not sure how reliable these random part website and eBay listings are, a good way to find out for sure is to check with Nissan/Holden or even ACL Performance Products if the part numbers for the gaskets match.

The only main differences between the two covers is the direction that the rocker cover breather hose faces, the side that the oil filler cap is located and some external pattern differences.
