    Even if you had a original cover you are going to have to cut it up, and fabricate additional pieces to make it work for that transmission. Might as well buy one of the reproduction covers and start with that.

    I have a decent upper section, but I don't know if it will clear that Chevy bell housing. I also have a couple of the lower sections, but they are not it good shape, pretty rusty especially on the part that bolts to the floor.

    Depending on weather, whenever I go back down to the barn I will take some pictures.

    The top cover is in usable shape, just has a half dollar size hole in it where Bubba installed accelerator linkage for a V6.

    The bottom cover is pretty rough, it is rusty, and has been hacked on. It is probably not worth postage.

    I have another bottom cover but it is rusted worse than this one.
