    dplate question.

    hi everyone.
    this maybe a stupid question but i have to ask.
    will it matter what position the dplate is mounted on the pipe.does it make any difference at all.
    i notice a little nob on the plate and the pipes and gaskets,my friend ski has the nob facing the other way,it does no math the pipe.
    excuse my ignorance but i know as the plate moves the hole also moves around,and changes position.
    thanks ..

    it should go one only one way ,
    yes... it needs to be oriented correctly. The "nub" should line up with the casting of the cat housing.

    Im pretty sure you cant install it backwards, I know the one I have is orientated with the dowel pins and aligned properly the water jackets and nub all line up, I`m pretty sure the D opening is towards the bottom, man alzheimer`s is setting in, dammit!

    check the condition of the gaskets and surfaces while your in there...
