Inspection cover with two screws? Do you mean the chain inspection cover?

So does the 1991-1993 5 speed models.
But...not a bad idea. Something like this:

I belive it's not often, but I had an issue with this... and I'm not sure at the moment, that I solved it a 100%.
It was escaping into the engine. I changed the crank seal, but I think there is still some small migration. In this case it would be very handy to have an inspection window...
