yj 2.5l vavle cover (brand new) doesnt fit?

So i got it from ebay and noticednthe fine print said this,


My 2.5L plastic valve cover bolt holes do not line up with the cylinder head. What should I do?
Do to the thermal dynamic nature of plastics the covers might have some natural deflection when they are released from the mold. When installing the 4CYL valve cover you want to start the two front and two rear bolt holes first (finger start only. Do Not Tighten). This might require some force to be applied to help return the plastic to its original molded shape. After the front two and rear two bolts have been lined up and started the remainder bolt holes should align without any difficulty. Proceed with factory spec torque setting and pattern sequence. Please note that the OMIX cover is supplied with a rubberized formed gasket attached to the cover. No additional gasket material is required. The OMIX cover has been designed to work on two types of 2.5L heads that were supplied by Jeep. The covers bolt hole openings might be larger than your original do to this variation from Jeep. #17401.01"

Has any one else had this problem? I couldn't get the damn thing on all the way. Two of the bolts were no where near seating.
