I always ran a Blanket, but don't feel too safe with that. I have had a tranny rip the tie down off the bell housing bolts and send second gear clutch pack threw the dash and roof. Thank god it missed the tootsies. After that I put a partial sheild on also, just on drivers side. The big thing is, if you run a rear spraq clutch, make sure it's a good one and if you do something like break an axel check it before you run it again. They break on the next run if they are going to. When engine goes to a quick free wheel the spraq gets jamed and creates a burr, then on next run it locks up and turns second gear clutch pack 2 1/2 times engine speed. This RPM is too much for it. I don't think this is a problem with 2 speed autos.

Paz I have always run the shield. They will let the transmission cool easier as air can flow around them. I use blankets to keep warm at night =; Bubstr is right on the 2 speeds not having a sprag. Only one I know of might be in your converter, not the transmission. TCI, BTE, Hughes, ATI have shields that are very much alike and are SFI approved here in the states.

Then again, you could just spring for one of those JW or Dedenbear cases that have an integral shield built in them =; All it takes is money \:D/

I run a dedenbare, it came with the car.

I'll be interested with how the balance thing works out on my car, if it was out of balance that case has had a hammering... as I don't run any rear mount on it, just hangs off the bellhousing..

No rear mount???? Sorry but I can't see how that will work. Seems to me it would break the bell housing. I seen a bellhousing (dedenbare case) break without proper support.... #-o #-o :-k Barry

Barry,

I thought it was strange too, but have heard of several others running without them as well...
