To follow-up on my previous post, as well as, 54Brit's comment; I ran the knuck for many years with the belt enclosed, it was in a wishbone frame then, I'm in the process of dropping it into a staight leg frame, which is the frame that is missing the rear primary bracket. Nevertheless, I didn't have holes cut in the primary then, and although I didn't notice any heat problem, upon reading 45bBrit's comment/suggestion, this may be a good idea (especially since I now live in south florida). Thanks.
Do you think just leaving the inspection covers off will provide sufficient cooling?
