While you have the Bendix cover off, you might as well paint it.

Hey Steve,

Are those things with the hooks Christmas Tree decorations? :-)

My favorite color is rust.

Steve, i see one hole is slotted out, is that factory or did you do that for ease of installation? All of mine are slotted and didn't look like they were cut out...Just wondering.

I didn't add the slot, but I think it's a common after-factory alteration due to the difficulty of starting the screw next to the hogshead with the Bendix cover in place.

Never had the joy of removing one--yet. I'm sure my time is coming!!

This was part of installing new transmission bands. I found that removing the Bendix cover allowed me to pull the reverse pedal and shaft completely out of the way when I installed the band. On the other side, I undid the exhaust pipe and moved it over an inch or so, which allowed me to remove the low band adjuster.

The Ford repair book says to loosen the screw closest to the trans cover, not remove it completely, thus I assumed at some point these hats came from the factory slotted.

That's what I get for not checking. Indeed, the book does say that. I sit corrected. :-)

Glad I came back to re-read the thread...just learned something, per Steve's post three above...sooner or later I'll be doing bands as most of us do, and on my '20 which of course has a starter, I hope to remember this info!

Thanks Steve
