Question for you guys 'cause I can't find it in the shop manual.
What size and length are the inspection plate bolts on a C4 trans ('66 coupe/200CID)? Also....was/is the plate routinely removed in southern or western cars to prevent the C4 from overheating or is this a myth?
Thanks

BTW, AMK will sell you the concours correct bolts if that's what you're interested in. I picked some up with an order I was placing for other things. Otherwise, a trip to the hardware store will do you just fine, probably.

No, the inspection plate should not be removed to prevent overheating!

From my understanding they were left off because the SOB that took it off in the first place was too lazy to put it back on...

HA!! That's probably true which would be why I've had to hunt up a plate and guess on the bolts.
Thanks for the info guys....it's solved the problem
