S62 Starter Motor Blank Plate

I've got an S62 conversion in my 1985 E30. It's a UK right hand drive car, but it's got a Dutch LHD engine fitted.

I swapped the starter motor yesterday which is fitted on the left side of the bay(to avoid hitting the steering column), but at the same time I noticed that the S62 and 6 speed gearbox has a position for the starter motor on each side. Currently I have no blank/cover plate on the other side and you can see the flywheel!

Can anyone confirm there is a cover there? If so, anyone know where to find it on a part diagram?

Thanks!

Well, realoem doesn't show an additional plate, you may have to manufacture one, here's the diagram:

RealOEM.com - Online BMW Parts Catalog

doesn't mater if it's generation one or two, tranny pics and parts remain the same. Starter pic is:

No plate there, checked in the engine dept. Also with nothing listed, perhaps you can contact Schmiedmanns or BMWdirtracer and ask him since he works on the marque in a professional capacity.

Pics would be nice.

Thanks for the info. That's interesting - i'm pretty positive they're two OEM holes as they're perfect. I even tested a starter motor in that position from a RHD vehicle.

Wonder if the block changed at some point and there was a cover plate. Might speak to a few techs and see if they can clarify.

I'll pop some pics up shortly...

Just found this race engine with both the starter positions open. There has to be a cover plate from BMW for this, just trying to track it down that's going to be the hard bit!

Couple of pics of the car here:



Don't have any recent engine bay shots, but here's one when it was almost complete
