There is one hole in the bell housing that should have a cover (near the
top). It allows access to the bolts that hold the torque converter to the
flexplate. The other holes in the bell housing are for movement of cooling
air. As far as I know, the cover is the same for all PG Corvairs. Look at
the pictures in this thread to see the cover and where is fits.
I do not have one of the plates.

I am slowly, but progressively dealing with all the minor issues before
reinstalling the completely restored drive train to our RHD Monza
While checking everything for any missed items I noticed an uncovered square
shaped opening on the engines bellhousing. It looks as if a steel inspection
panel might be missing and that this steel panel perhaps originally clipped
into place covering this opening. My guess is that at some point in the cars
life this steel panel either fell off or was not replaced after having been
Is my thinking correct? Was this openning originally covered or was it left
open? If I am right, then I would like to obtain one of these cover plates.
Does anyone have one that they would be prepared to sell?
