    This is for our standard Diff Cover which features a 1/2" low profile laser cut bolt ring. The gear cover is then cut from a 1/4" piece of plate in the shape similiar to that of a butterfly. We take that single piece of 1/4" and form it in a precision CNC break into a bowl shape it is then fixture welded to ensure a flat gasket seal area. We build these in several different model including the D-44, D-60 and 14 bolt. I also offer options such as 1/2" plating across the midsection and counterbored mount holes. Our one of a kind design is unbeatable in strength. This price is lower 48 only if you need options please contact me for pricing at the e-mail addy below. We also make these in tread plate material upon request for pricing again please e-mail me. Thanks Shawn

    You have an e-mail but to address his good question. I do not run my business as most we try to always have a dozen of everything made up on the shelf. This is more expensive but with the volum of covers we move it is a necessity. Thanks Shawn

    Just installed mine today. Very stout cover, I'm guessing it weighs close to 20 pounds. :eek1: On mine the fit was very tight, like I had a hard time getting all the bolts to line up. But I did eventually get it all to go.

    I'm a little concerned because there's very little room for the bolt heads. I didn't really think I could fit any lock washers or anything, so I just used plain bolts (the style with the built in lockwasher, like from the factory, would never fit). I'll have to keep an eye on it for a while to make sure nothing is getting loose. How have other folks dealt with this?

    No worries about denting the cover or peeling it off, that's for sure.

    It won't be a problem, RTV will keep the bolts snug.

    Actually, it may have been a mistake, but after talking it over with some people and reading the manual, I decided not to use RTV, just gasket. My thinking was that if you can get by with no RTV on the housing side anyway when you use a gasket, why put it on the cover side and then have to scrape it off later. I did use some RTV on a few of the looser fitting bolts as pseudo-loctite though...
