    We have a couple of blocks apart right now, one each. I’ll be at the shop either this weekend or early next week and check it out. I’ll let you know.

    Checked with the machinist and also uses beefier rods and longer head bolts.

    My understanding is that the Turbo engines have deeper bolt holes/longer bolts for the main bearing caps. I believe there are some other small differences but they escape me at the moment. I’ll check back if I can find the info.

    Sorry Jim, not looking to sell, looking for a mirror glass for my good frame for my car. Like to talk on that glass. Send you a PM.

    I have a good original door mirror like the picture in the first post, but the glass is broken out. Did I see somewhere there was common aftermarket mirror with the right size glass that could be removed and glued into the 62 F85 mirror?

    Glass shops can cut mirror for it but it’s not “automotive non-glare mirror”, they say it diffuses headlights and glares at night.

    Looks good Jim. Wish I could get there. Yeah Mac, that’s the stuff I was referring to, I had done a quicky but I need to take some more time. May cut my losses and go with the foam, like the look of that RTV though.

    Man, everything sticks to both the alum housing and the lens like crazy. Would never be able to get it apart and I only have one good lens to work with. Tried RTV and regular Permatex Silicon sealant and same result. Tested a small area using veggie oil and while it helped on the release it wasn’t reliable for release and if I have the whole perimeter gooped to form the gasket I would be very concerned about being able to separate them. You’re right on the silicon grease or spay silicon, complete adhesion. Also got a product called Versimold which is a partially cured form of rubber that is form-able to whatever shape you want and then cures with a heat gun or oven bake. Check it out, looks very useful, but had a difficult time with this application, didn’t work out but may give it another try.

    Cutting a crude foam gasket for now but any suggestions appreciated for a better product.

    Also,there is a table of contents at the beginning and you can guess what page you want and go back and forth a little to dial it in by changing the page number up in the browser. Still tedious but a lot quicker than page by page.

    Take another look, I think Joe’s answer handles both questions.
