Default Valve cover with fill cap at forward end?

I have a 90 with the 4.0L. I am in process of building my own cowl air intake setup. The air pipe is running right over the oil fill cap on the valve cover. Was there a different year or vehicle with the oil fill cap at the forward end of the valve cover? Also need an oil dipstick that goes up straight rather than bending forward.

Look for the 4.2 YJ valve cover. They had to fit a giant air cleaner so I think the cap was near the front.

They were different up until the last 2 years of the 4.2 engine which then got the 4.0 bolt pattern.
