    Hi, the clutch went out on my son's 88 T4R. Before replacing the clutch itself, we decided to replace the Master & Slave cylinders, and that's when we noticed a significant bend in the plate that seals up against the transmission, right behind the oil pan. Can anyone tell me what that part is actually called, and identify whether or not that bend represents a significant problem? Seems like it must, but I believe it has been driven like this for a long time, so perhaps it is not. Thanks, folks!
