In preparation for my Quaife install I opened up my replacement tranny ('95 tranny I got from the junkyard) and found inside what looks to be some type of baffle plate that wraps about 90 degrees around the mainshaft.

It's made out of a light green plastic and measures about 10 inches high and about 6 inches wide. Anybody know what I'm talking about? Anyhow, I'm looking thru my '91 FSM and, as far as I can tell, this piece of plastic is not mentioned anywhere.

What I find interesting is that it is loose and isn't held in place by a screw or bolt... but rather by the two halves of the tranny case when the case is re-assembled. I'll probably use a couple dabs of sealant to hold it in place when I put the case back together.

Turns out this baffle plate clips into the other half of the case... the half of the case that doesn't have the final drive gear.

the peice of plastic you are talking about actually redirects the flow of oil in the tranny. (don't remove or forget to put it in)
