valve cover bolt pattern

Okay, I made the simple mistake of not noting where the studs are on my 1995 YJ 2.5L when removing the valve cover. Can someone look at theirs and post the pattern? Please be specific as there are bolts, studs, and studs with nuts (11 total). I found a post with the 4.0 pattern, but not the 2.5 pattern. Thanks, Greg.

Can anyone answer this please? Seems an easy enough answer if you just look at your engine.

I would like to help you but the early 2.5s use a different valve cover, therefor may have a different pattern.

On mine I remember the 4 corners had studs and the 2 on the drivers side were the studs with nuts on them. I think there is one other. I dont have the jeep at work so I cant run out and check. But if I remember correctly there were a total of 5 studs 3 without nuts and 2 with nuts on them. The rest were bolts.

Thanks Siva. That's a start. Is your's a '95? If you get time and can look at it to verify pattern, I'd appreciate it.

Crap sorry dude I forgot to get the pic. On mine though looking at it there is a stud on each corner the back drivers side is a stud with a nut the body ground strap attaches to it. The front drivers side is a stud with a nut a braket attaches to it The two center spots on the drivers side are studs as well. The rest are bolts.

I just tried taking a pic. I don't know if its dark or my camera sucks but I can't get it to show up well enough to where you can tell the bolts from the studs.
