Default Flywheel inspection cover

53 8ba flathead..Any ideas where I can get a clutch/flywheel inspection cover? Didn't see any in for sale section. Haven't located any in stock at parts stores. Maybe someone has one laying around after tranny swap? Thanks

I don't have any spares, but all full cast iron '51-'53 Merc and '52-'53 Ford car bells use the same starter plates and lower inspection covers, which may make it easier to locate one.

The left picture below is a '52-'53 Ford/Merc full cast iron bell housing with the starter plate and lower inspection cover. The second picture shows a '51 Mercury full cast bell with the same lower cover mounted on a block. These may be of help locating the correct cover.
