Legacy 99 LOB. How to tell which valve cover is on the engine?

I have a 99 Legacy Outback that I have to change out the head gaskets. I am stalled until I can determine the type of valve cover is on the engine. I looked tonight and was not able to see any numbers stamped into the valve cover itself. So, ho do you determine of you have a 13264-AA190 (RH)/13278-AA170 (LH) cover or the 13264-AA160(RH)/13278-AA140 (LH) covers?


Thanks

Jake

Why do you need to know about the valve cover? If you give a dealer your VIN, they can tell you.

I do not have a decent dealer around me, and the covers require the correct gasket. I do not want to order a head gasket set and find out that the valve cover gaskets are wrong.

So, does anyone know the answer?

The engine reseal kit will have both type of cover seals. The difference will most likely be the spark plug opening shape if we're talking about the early and late style DOHC heads.
