Dust Cover - Flywheel Cover

Changing the oil filter the other day I cut the back of my hand on the flywheel on my ole Hot Rod Model A. I never put a dust shield on the turbo 350.

This got me to wondering about if I should go ahead and install a dust shield.

Are you fella's running these?

I never had one on my Willys. The ex pipes are too close. I have over 20k on it and the converter is still relatively clean. There is not much dirt or dust inside the bellhousing either. Considering the roads and amount of wet weather I have driven in I'm surprised it is this clean. No trans fluid leaks from this area either.

I've 2 street rods where one has a shield and the other doesn't. Why? I cannot find one that fits my 700 R4 trans as the bolt holes doen't line up with any type that I try to match it with. The other has the turbo and has the shield. Moral of the story? If you find one to fit then do so. If you can't, the trans will still survive. Next time wear gloves.
