help with valve cover

I bought a 1989 4.2 I6 long block and I can't find a valve cover for it. I have been told the 81-86 valve cover (7 bolt)will fit and I have been told it won't. I read that if it was a 1989 with a 4.2 and factory aluminum cover instead of a plastic it is different (15 mounting bolts instead of 7) and has the 4.0 bolt patern. Any help on this and where I could get one. Thanks

Have you tried Morris 4x4? Last I looked you can buy eithe the plastic or alum valve cover. Look for YJ replacement parts section.


1989 YJ | 4" Lift | 33"x12.50"x15" | Still figuring out what else I got. Bought September 2011 w/137K on the ticker.
