Here are some links to some vendors who have/had them for the '81 - '87 258 engines.   Let us know of any others.

I bought the 4th one down on this page for my 83... it is also the same one I have on my 82, but the 82 is the silver one. It cost me $92 with shipping and everything.

My 87 has the aluminum. Must have been a mid year change?

Will this work on our motors? I met a guy that has an 82 with the plastic cover and they swear it will fit. I have not seen a stamped steel one that will fit. Thanks for your input.

That fits only on 1980 and before heads.  No stamped steel for '81 to '87ish.  Just the aluminum aftermarket ones will work or the dreaded plastic replacements.

  Doug,
         How about the aluminum cover from Morris 4X4, with 4.2L logo, $52.57,
this is the one I have been looking at, says it fits '81 to '87 Jeeps.

Have you got a link or picture?  If it is the right one that is a very good price. Does it come with the gasket, oil filler cap and screws?

Sointently.  That be the one.  OK all of you Rambler Mentality guys and gals.  This is even less than most of the plastic replacement ones.

This shows 80.00 now

In the grass roots project, they state that they used a 4.0 head and that gave them extra hose over the stock head will this do the same?
For God's sake, let us sit upon the ground and tell stories of the lives of Kings, Those that drive an AMC of course!

The valve cover?  No, it just stops oil from leaking out and looks nice(r).

I just picked one up on ebay for $67 from "midwestjeepsupercenter", this is good for the black one, the polished one was a few bucks cheaper.  Shipping was around $13 as I recall.  It looked like they had plenty in stock.  A pretty fair price since all I have found on the net was well over a hundred clams apiece.

I finally got sick of smelling burnt oil smoking off of my exhaust pipe!
