The lower edge of the bellhousing is cut away to allow greater ground clearance for kit cars and low slung competition cars. To close the cutout fabricate a simple plate to suit your application and attach with 2 x 6mm machine screws screwed into the pre-tapped holes.

Machined to order (lead time approximately 10 days).

Requires 4 12mm x 1 1/2mm pitch cap head screws

You may also need the spigot bearing that fits directly in the end of the crankshaft ***. The RS2000 Clutch Fork and RS2000 Clutch Release Bearing may also be required.
