The 4.0 and 4.2 timing chain covers are exactly the same up to I believe 93 or 94 then the 4.0 went to a one piece oil pan gasket and the timing chain cover changed slightly as a result, you can still use the later timing chain cover on the earlier engines you just have to either . . . 1, use the one piece oil pan gasket (a little more pricey than the 4 piece but it is a way better gasket) or 2, drill the four small locating holes into the later timing chain cover so you can use the four piece gasket set.

Thanks guys. Doing alright Dean, off work again for awhile, too much stress for me I guess. Miss you guys. Hope things are good for everyone.

Mikey you rock, thanks. I have one from a 90 or 91 I can use. Mine is so worn out the slider and the tabs that hold it in are gone.
