    Do any of you know what the part that fits between the engine and transmission of a 350 and sm465 that covers the bottom of the cluch to keep dirt/mud out is called. I've went to the junkyard and tried to explain what I need and they look at me dumfounded. Please Help, I'm surrounded by stupid people!!!

    if you have a 360 deg housing all you need is a little flat sheet metal for the back.. easy enough to make.. dont think you'll find one in the yards
