Is there any difference between using that three bond stuff the manual recommends compared to the copper gasket maker stuff from autozone which i already have?

Its for sealing the cylinder head cover to the head. Thanks

fhibbs12,
I'm not so sure about the copper gasket material from Autozone. I would recommend holding both materials and looking at the suggested usage on both items and especially the ingredients, temperature range, water resistance and so-on. Is this the valve cover or the barrel to the top of the engine? It is a little unclear to me. Also Is this a Honda or?? If it is a Honda I am almost certain that they use "O" rings not sealant. Not sure about the barrel to the top of the engine.
A little more info would be great.

The meeting between the cylinder head and tne cylinder head cover doesn't have a gasket. It uses a liquid sealant that forms a gasket.

I had a lotus and rebuilt the engine some years ago.. It all went together with liquid sealat.. The idea behind it is that there is zero tolerance, whereas a silicon gasket type instant gasket will always add some thickness and therefore not zero tolerance..
not the easiest stuff to find !
