Dust cap on clutch rotates

I have a strange sound coming from the transmission. It is a rattling squeeqing sound, especially when disengaging the clutch or when motorbreaking.

I now noticed that the dust cap (7) is loose and actually can rotate. That does not seem right to me. Anyone knows how that one should be fitted?

Dust Cap

It is only pressed on the Giubo mount.

You can try cleaning its mount area with a wire brush and brake clean and epoxying it back in place. Use only JB Weld (Not the JB "Quick" formula)

Best & permanent for sure is to unbolt the flange (it will slide off of the splines) and have it welded to the flange.

Thanks! That makes sense.

I was actually not sure whether the intent was that it should rotate with the yoke, or be fixed to the clutch housing.

From your message I understand that it should rotate. I will try the quick solution and hope it survives the summer.

Number 7 is held down by the yoke. Your yoke is probably slightly loose since 7 is able to move.

If the yoke is slightly loose, then that would mean that the flywheel of the clutch is somewhat free to move axially and perhaps vibrate and rattle about. And that would be different with clutch engaged/disengaged or accellerating/decelerating, as I have noticed, right?
