I started doing a valve cover gasket replacement today and the gasket for the engine that I should have doesnt fit.
the gasket I have looks like this
the gasket I need looks like this but wavy on both sides and with about 2 times the bolt holes. the only numbers I've been able to pull from the engine are 893003689 from the inside of the valve cover and a partial serial or casting number from the block near the distributor xxxx3cl23
I'm a bit worried about what I'm running now. I'm new to jeeps but it seems to me that I'm either running a newer wrangler engine, which would be fine; or a cherokee engine, not ok as it would mean I possibly also have a cherokee transmission... which I've heard many times are horrible.
I'm trying to post pics but all the links I put in from flikr dont work for some reason. if anyone can tell me how to post working links from flikr I have pics of the valve cover and the engine with the cover off.
EDIT: just go here for pics: http://www.flickr.com/photos/7850897...n/photostream/
