I'm missing the torque covertor (inspection) cover for my '85 RC. I've looked around but can't find one. Does anyone know where I might track one down, or perhaps how to fab one?

you don't need it...I haven't had one on either of my trucks for years.

they make changing the starter a pain in the butt
The cover doesn't get in the way to change starter. If you offroad it helps keep mud from gathering in there.

I don't see how the cover would cause a prob w/ the starter off and on?

That is my primary concern. I wasn't really sure if it would hurt anything not having one, but without it, that housing acts just like a scoop for mud, sand, clay, etc.
Thanks. If you do have an extra one, let me know how much you want for it.

Out here, where mud happens once or twice a year, runnign without it is no big deal, won't hurt a thing. If you go mudding a lot though, better find one and get it on.

This appears to be the part number. You might want to check with the dealer to verify. www.arizonaparts.com has one for $8.40..he is a bit independent to talk to but his prices are good.

Chrysler part# 4130503

I have a whole stack of those covors. I think there is a difference between 904 tranny and the 727 cover though. Chump could you varify that? I'm 180 miles from where they are so i can't just go out and look at them. Most of mine are off 904 tranny's. If the 727 and 904 are the same i would just give it to you if you pay shipping.

Well, all I know, is I have done my fair share of mudding, and it has never hurt me or the trans. The oil pan acts as a shield anyway. if your in actual mud, not muddy water, that deep, your in some deep poop anyways.

It makes the starter hard to get off and on cuz of the hole inthe cover the starter has to go thru. if you have minimal header clearance, it can make it hard if not impossible to get the starter off without removing the headers too.
