Default Continental Tappet covers on Millennium cylinders?

Hi from Downunder. We purchased a C85 from a guy in the US with Millennium cylinders and tappet covers. We would like to make it look more original by putting Continental covers on instead. Is it permissible, possible, recommended or not a good idea?
Thanks, John Daley

Thanks for that. We have the Cont. covers from a C90, just not sure it's an acceptable thing to substitute the existing Millennium covers for the Continental.

It's your engine. Put whatever covers you want on it. C-90 covers will work just fine.
