Check the websites for Morris 4x4 or Quadratec if you can find one at a wrecking yard

Good luck,

I'm no authority, but that seems quite reasonable, for aluminum, to me.

Thanks much,

the valve cover at morris (and other parts suppliers) is for the early 4.2's, 1986 and older. the bolt pattern changed in 87. I've never seen a new replacement, you can find them used at ebay or a place like daveys jeep.

Good to know, since I've got an '88 with a leaky valve cover gasket.

Thanks.
