    You mean the rectangle one that is about 4x6 with 6 holes in it? If so I have one if you want to pay the shipping it is yours.

    I thought I was wrong once,
    but I was mistaken

    what i need is the cover that mounts to the front of the bellhousing that helps prevent dirt from going past the flywheel and into the clutch. I think what you are talking about is the transmission PTO cover ( and i guess what I should have said was the bellhousing/clutch inspection cover) that is found on the transmission.

    thanks

    I took mine off and threw it away. It constantly collected mud. It could get in but it could not get out then one day I went in a deep hole that pushed it back and the crankshaft caught it. I thought at first a rod was coming out. It has been off almost 10 years now and I like it that way. You might want to consider going without it.

    I have one lazer cut from polished stainless steel. I bought it on e-bay thinking it would fit my nv4500, but it won't. I'll try to send you a pic if you like. $20.00 shipped to your door. It really is a nice piece.

    I try and avoid mud, I have a cover on mine and haven't had any trouble with it.
