Flywheel inspection cover install

So, of all the things that have caused me trouble getting put back together this one makes me feel the most stupid. This shouldn't be that hard. I have tried sliding this thing from several angles and just can't get it. My truck came from the factory with a 307 and a 3 speed. I swapped in a 350 and kept the 3 speed and bell housing. I have an aftermarket oil pan, but it is standard capacity and looks stock. It seems as though the pan is what's causing the issue but it's hard to tell. I am tempted to get out my grinder and clearance the inspection cover. That or a hammer to get it past the pan. Anyone else ever had this issue?

Thanks.

Re: Flywheel inspection cover install

I am always afraid to cut on the old girl, but apparently that's what she was needing here. 5 minutes with my air cutoff tool and 5 more with a hand file to deburr the edge and the guard went right in. I guess my oil pan must be 1/4 inch bigger than stock.

I have to install mine too. At least I know what to do now if I have the same issue lol. What size bolts does the cover use?
