Dave,
Before you buy a spare... standby to see how I mount my COPS... planning on not needing to modify it at all.

I'm just going to use the 3 stock holes already in the Valve cover... the ones one the end of the #1 and #4 plug, and the one between #2-#3.

There will be a holddown plate that goes on top of the COPS and three spacers. The key is the depth of the bolt/spacer. You want the plate to sit tight on the spacer so that it functions to keep the valve cover tight against the head, but you don't want the plate crushing the COPs.

I'm getting better at paint, but I hope this gets the idea across:

do yourself a favor and go to the home deep and get some aluminum tubing that fits over the (8mm??) bolts so you can make spacers. it's cheap. you can see it in mine.
