My 1987 Yj with the 4.2 california motor doesn't have the two rocker arm studs. Will the valve cover still work on my jeep? I want a replacement valve cover that I don't have to drill holes in the engine block. Any recommendations?

On the 87 4.2L engine it has the holes around the outer edge to hold the valve cover. I would use the valve cover made by Crown. Here is the part number you can pull it up on our website. There is an instructional pdf also showing how to mount it.

You will need to drill the head with a normal hand drill then tap the holes. It is very simple to do and not very time consuming.

I want to stop the oil leaks at the original plastic valve cover. Which is the best replacement cover to use. I know I will need to drill and tap the head.

Thanks for asking. This Omix-Ada Aluminum valve cover kit will do quite well n stopping the oil leaks caused by the OEM plastic valve cover on your Jeep Wrangler YJ
