Admittedly I don't know much about engines. Hell, I don't know much about cars. I've never even changed my oil before, but I'm planning an engine swap. Go figure.
Anyway, I was mounting my new transmission on my new engine today and I noticed that the bottom of the clutch case cover is bent. It looks like the engine was resting on the clutch case cover at one time.
Does transmission fluid only go in the gear area of the tranny and not where the flywheel/clutch are? If my cover is bent on the bottom should I replace it just to keep the dust/etc. out of the clutch/flywheel area?
if I'm going to replace my clutch case cover, should I just replace my clutch and flywheel too?]
I would post pictures but the camera isn't here.
The part that is bent is #1 in this image:
