40 special engine splash pans


Recommended Posts

So I put these back on yesterday and noticed the one on the drivers side has an unused hole at the rear near the oil pan. Anyone have an Idea what its for? These pans are original to the car and I don't remember if something was bolted to it.

RIKI, don`t know if the `40 is similar to my `36 splash pans, both of mine have a spring and "L" bracket at the back. Picture attached.

I cant see where it would attach to anything. Surely not the engine and I dont have any springs or other brackets. Its the hole at the trailing edge close to the block

On my `36 40 series, there`s 3 pans, one fits across the rear of the front cross-member, the side pans bolt to the front pan and side rails of the frame. My pans go all the way to the back end of the engine block, and the "L" bracket attaches to the outer bolt of the flywheel dust pan, each side, i guess the spring helps absorb any engine movement. The pan you are showing looks to be quite a bit shorter than mine, both of my side pans are 33 1/2" long. Maybe someone with a `40 will jump in here and provide the answer.

RiKi,   I have a 40 sitting in the shop right now. What angle is the picture that you posted? I can go look and let you know.

Is this the hole you are referring to? And to be transparent, I just got this car and have noticed a TON of missing hardware so mine might be in the same boat as yours.

I looked closer at your picture and the most rearward curved shield I don't have installed but I saw it recently so I know it's  some where in my shop. Blasted and painted, I'll install it when I find it. Thanks for the pic.

Dose the extension piece have the spring and "L" bracket to mount to the outer dust cover bolt? Also is your right side splash pan full length under the starter, and bolt to the outer dust pan bolt with spring and "L" bracket?

Yeah I have two shields. Just was able to see them when I crawled under a few minutes ago. So it does seem like there is a spring attached to the rear panel.
