Direct OE replacement Jeep parts and accessories built to the original specifications by Omix-ADA. Limited five year manufacturer?s warranty.
It still does not seal after multiple attempts. Switching to aluminum.
The bolts and nuts were all wrong and had to find and buy new bolts to fit. The gasket stuck out to far and hit the studs on the head bolts so I had to cut it thinner with scissors. Theres 2 holes in the top that go to nothing and I had to get rubber plugs to put in those. This was all wrong.
I was very disappointed with this part. The hole pattern was so far off that I couldn't install the bolts.
Will this fit the 89 jeep wrangler yj 2.5 with throttle body injection

This item says it is a direct replacement. It also says drilling required. What, where and why is drilling required if it is a direct replacement?
Asked by Tom from Sunnyavle Ca on
Tom, this Omix-Ada Aluminum Valve Cover is a direct replacement as far as size. But you may have to do some drilling because you are replacing a plastic cover with an aluminum cover. The following is copied directly from the Omix-Ada install instructions that are included with the valve cover. " Step.3 ( Tapping of blank holes) You may find 5 of the 5/15” aligned holes will have no threads. These holes were used as guide hole only for the plastic cover and will require tapping. Tap the holes with a 5/16” x 18 thread “bottom” tap. CAUTION!! DRILLING HOLES TO BEEP WILL RESULT IN DRILLING INTO THE WATER JACKET!!" and "Step.4 (Missing holes) On some early models you may find two holes missing on each end of the head. For this application it will be required that the hole locations be marked with the new aluminum cover in position. Secured the cover in place with all existing holes aligned and mark the new hole locations with a good permanent marker. With the holes properly located use a punch to mark the center of the hole to insure proper drill bit placement. With great care drill the holes and use a ¼” x 20 “bottom” tap." and "Step.5 (Rocker bridge replacement) It may be required to replace the studded rocker bridges used for the plastic valve with new non - studded bridges under part number MRM1718 (17408.11) or the studs may be cut off if they interfere with fitment of the aluminum cover. Additional modifications may be needed to air conditioning and or air cleaner brackets for proper fitment. DO NOT modify or cut the aluminum valve cover as this will void any warranty. " I hope this helps clear it up a little bit.
