    Yes, the small fitting at the back with two bolts.
    Also disconnect the blue plug on the bulkhead at the other end of the engine (wire colours pink and white iirc)

    That should do it - what are you planning on making the plate out of?

    1.6mm should do it, with a gasket each side (could make these out of cereal packets smeared with grease if you've got nothing else...)
