The cover was there to distinguish two types of fixing, I think it goes
something like the early cars had a diff with shims and a castellated nut
and no cover, the later cars have a collapsible spacer, nyloc nut and a
cover, the covers are available from some suppliers, bought one recently for
a Dolomite diff, think I got it from Mick Dolphin, (it was for a Sprint so
may be a different size).
