SM465 flywheel cover

I have heard that the SM465 transmission flywheel cover is a near impossible item to find. When I bought the truck, this item had already been removed. I would like to drive my truck when ever I wanted however, I am wiry of driving it if it is rainy or ground is wet. Kind of makes the 4x4 pointless if I cant take it off road, through whatever I want. Does anyone know where I can find a replacement, or a way to manufacture one?

Thanks for your help. I got them ordered and installed them yesterday. They were a great fit.

And if anyone happens to look at this post in the future.. the part numbers needed were 285 and 279. that will work for the cast iron bell housing attached to the SM465.

I can understand that. We make life choices, got to do what you have to do sometimes.
