Try this stuff mate Threebond liquid engine gasket 1194

I just did mine today funny enough but the sealant I got was from a Vauxhall garage. Same stuff but on a small mastic type tube. Really good stuff mate, its what you want

Re: Mk2 punto rocker cover oil leak

It'll definately work for you mate

Just make sure the surfaces are clean as you can get them thats all. I used it on all sorts and even the Vauxhall guy today said they use it where no sump gasket is fitted on Izuzu engines.
Its a little pricey but it goes a long way and is perfect for the job no question.

Good luck mate, I know you wont be disappointed

They all need a little gasket goo. Important to clean out the grooves and surfaces well (I use acetone or spirit wipe, petrol does a decent job).
