    If you are talking about the cover for the bottom of the torque converter, then no. I don't run one. holds the mud in. My truck didn't have one when I bought it. I bought one at a swap meet only to never install it. One of the tabs is in the way of my exhaust. $20 hanging on a nail in my garage for 7 years now.:doah:

    I run one but I drilled a bunch of 3\8" holes in it to let the water and muck out. I have heard people say trans will run cooler without one.
