  • hello to all have a ? on plastic caps for..

    Thank you for maintaining such a great site and resource. Just purchased a 1992 261B CC and I am looking for the plastic caps that cover the holes on the top of my bracket. Any ideas?

    I think you may be talking of pie plate covers?If so get Armstrong pie plates

      Thank you for responding so quickly. Just came on to check today.

      The holes are 2 inch and are used to access top bolts for motor mount.I have no other access inside bracket.

            You can cut those holes larger and get 8 inch Armstrong pie plates that way you can get to your bolts and have access also.There are larger sizes if you wish to go bigger

                        Daniel, i don't think you are talking about the same thing.

                        the factory bracket 261's have a hole in the front of the "motor mount" at the top of the bracket to access the top bolts. pretty sure this is what the op is asking about.



                        see this thread about the middle of page 1 to see eddies original solution and what he finally ended up with. unfortunately this a totally custom one off solution and would have to be made to order by a machinist.

                        another option might to tap the hole for whatever size pipe thread it is closest to and screw in a plastic plug?
