Yeah they`re the same. The change was made later on when they started using plastic covers.

The 92-94 4.3L 'W' CPI engine has a balance shaft and has a metal timing cover which is different than the non-balance shaft 85-92 4.3L TBI/carb timing cover which is the same as the V8. I believe the plastic timing cover is from early 95 and up.
Just posted this for info purposes.
