Modified “sh!t” plate

P1040585

Using a larger than standard clutch in a T3 Diesel brings a few pit falls, one is the factory dust shield between the engine and gearbox doesn’t fit. Aftermarket ones are available but they are supplied to suit both 2WD and 4WD models, to fit a 4WD they need a little bend to close up a slot on the bell housing. Once bent into shape I wasn’t happy with the fit so I added a small 90° bracket and TIG’d it into place so I can use the factory hole in the bell housing to use a nut and bolt to secure the plate.
