    real basic aren't they :rock: pick up a short block from the earlier post and get it done mate. Plan B get the crank reground put the block in a cooker and buy some forged pistons. Good, project and all from there is forward...

    Block was sent in, the crank has been turned .010 thou , and waiting on parts to start showing up, I think they said last piece was the cam since it has some surface scars on it

    I’m in no hurry , it’s been down for a year, and it’s almost winter time here, so I wouldn’t be driving it in the snow, as long as it’s done by spring time ! Oh hell Yea

    I would if you can find it. I'm sure it breaks down like most other foam does. 13 yrs old already.

    It is EXACTLY THE SAME "stuff" they use for filter-media on saltwater fish-tanks.

    If it isn't available at a dealer, you can always count on your local pet-supply house to help you source materials for your Viper engine. :)



    Clean the bolts/holes with solvent and use some thread-locker so they don't fall out after you bolt the plate back on.
