700 case strength ?

has anyone seen a 700r4 case break around the belhousing bolts ? i have a 95 s10. it has the cast converter cover and the brackets that go to the engine mounts. if i removed the brackets and switched to a sheet metal cover, would i have a problem ? this is a mildly driven daily driver. thanx the reason for removing these, is for easier future servicing.

The only time I has seen the case break around the bellhousing bolts is when someone has tried to pull up the trans to an engine using the bellhousing bolts.....they ain't designed for that and will break the trans case.

GM actually built a stamped steel cover for that application too. SO I would think the case is plenty strong enough.
