Look up a picture of a clutch cover on pre-'65 panhead or knucklehead and you will see that the cover resembled a Derby hat. Internet wisdom is that the resemblance started the nickname "Derby cover", which now is synonymous with "clutch cover".

Derby cover screws are T27 Torx if recall. Golden rule with Torx is to always try the next size up, just in case! The cover O ring can be re-used and you might need a few small blobs of blue Hylomar to help hold it in place in its groove.
Read this before you start.

That Ebay cover shows the classic "Panhead Emergency Brake" damage that happens when you go down into a slide on the primary side! I still have one just like that in the garage from when I did.
