1987 yj valve cover

Hello all

I have a question. Can you flip a 15 bolt valve cover on my wrangler so the cap, breather, and pcv value are reversed? My wrangler had it set up where the rear of the block had just the breather and the front had the oil cap and pcv valve in the front.

Picture one is how my jeep came.



Picture two is how I need it to be.


Would it work if I changed it to match pic 2. The bolts pattern in picture 2 is the only way I can get it to fit.

If it bolts up and holds oil, I don't think it should matter. Adding oil will be harder, just make sure there is no difference between the baffles on the breather and PCV valve holes or just plug the breather and PCV valve into their original holes.

I don't see what this accomplishes though?

No, the valve cover will not reverse. The hole pattern is not symetrical.

Are you saying your oil fill port is in the rear of the engine? I don't know how that could be.

You can reverse the hoses to the PCV and vent locations. Those are the same. Don't know why you would want to.
