Are there any differences between the 1956 and the 58 valve covers on a 235? Thank you, Gerry

Some had the oil spout in the front and some in the middle depended on what it was put into for hood clearance..1954 had slits in the cover with no vented cap .somewhere is a picture of all the differences in the covers .
