If you look on Hershal's photos in the pilot bearing thread you'll see a metal plate in the picture. Hershal, I assume this plate is used to close up the adapter plate area and flywheel from the outside. Did you make the plate? Or, did the plate come with your car? Is there a template? I assume the standard Ford plate won't work due to starter location etc. I don't have one but need to make something as I don't want the flywheel exposed to the elements.
