Timing chain cover Answered

I have a 97 dodge dakota and I need a new timing chain cover. On-line purchases are out of the question because I'm short on time and cash. I will be going to pick n pull to get a replacement but they currently only have years 91, 92, 93, 95, and 99. My question is this, how do i find out how similar any of these other covers are, short of driving all the way to the yard and inspecting each one. does anyone know off hand how interchangeable this piece is?

A quick look on wikipedia say they have several different engines, so that is the question you need to ask the pick and pull guy

1997–2003 - 3.9 L (238 cu in) Magnum V6, 175 hp (130 kW)
1997–1999 - 5.2 L (318 cu in) Magnum V8, 225 hp (168 kW)
1998–2003 - 5.9 L (360 cu in) Magnum V8, 250 hp (190 kW)
1999–2000 - 2.5 L (152.5 cu in) VM-425 OHV I4, 114 hp (85 kW)

I may be teaching you to suck eggs, but have you tried asking a specialist?

This site has all the covers you need in stock, you could contact them, pretend you don't know the year of the engine because somebody changed it, then ask if it matters which cover you buy...
