  • The bar is already installed, the main hoop is on plates. I am just trying to seal the floor.

    • ah, sorry. I'm an idiot.

      Are you saying seal it up around the bar? Like a cover plate? Cope with me for a minute, but I'm having a mental block with the thought of a butt joint of thin sheet metal being joined well to the bar.

      Maybe a cardboard template to get the angle/shape of the bar right and then a cut a sheetmetal cover with split fuel line around the edge to seal it? Click image for larger version

      • Maybe something like that. I more or less want to know if get the floor boards close to the bar then caulk it with fire proof caulk will it be good enough?

        • I think a small gap and fireproof caulk should be OK - but I'd send Keith an Email just to be sure. Vic would know, too. I'd say Jerry but I don't know how to get a hold of him. The ones in the Camaro and Mutt have plates welded to the bars at that point so mine are a bit different.

          • I pulled half of the rod caps off be fore I ran out of time 3 of them look like i was expecting one looked different. Option one is put back together and not worry about option two is put a new standard bearing in there.

            • Did this engine sit for a long time? Acids in the oil can cause that pitting in those situations.
              Of all the paths you take in life - make sure a few of them are dirt.

              • Yeah it has sat alot best i can remember I put those in about 6 years / 15k miles ago but it has had long spells of sitting, the last 2.5 years its been driven very little.

                • I'd just put new bearings in. You already have it apart.

                  • If you did not read the thead on the rest of my bearings troubles.

                    The short version is the mains were worse than the rods. Dan hooked me up with the 93 HO out of the volvo.

                    Progress has been slow due to very few trip out to the shop. I got the bearing caps back on the P motor and took the main harness off the HO and swapped the motor mounts.

                    I put some bugger welds on a few more holes in the floor pan hopefully I am about done with welding. Going to wash it and put some paint on the bare metal next.

                    • Pulled the FED and timing cover the boat anchor.

                      Photobucket is being stupid so no pictures.

                      This also got me thinking I have spare timing chain that can advance or retarded the cam timing by 4*. So 100% stock 5.0HO straight up, or retarded 4*, or advanced 4*?

                        • That looks like a Volvo engine.......

                          It'll be fun to tell folks you have a Volvo engine in your Fox race car! (Sounds like something I'd build.)

                          • They look very similar but that is the boat anchor, I am getting the FED put on the volvo engine.

                            • Found some time to work on the volvo engine. Put the timing cover on, the oil pump pick up, the oil pan, balancer and FED. I need to put the thermostat in (forgot to get a gasket) I will wait until its in to put the upper intake a crank pulley on.
