Trim strip part needed
Posted by: dryenko ()
Date: June 18, 2017 07:38PM

To a complete engine install in a EM Corvair, I am looking for the metal trim strips for the front and rear of the engine that hold the rubberized fabric to the BODY.
These are the ones that are attached by screws.
I am also looking for the metal strip that attaches the rubberized fabric to the rear of the ENGINE.
Please PM me if you have these- in good shape - for sale.

I got the rears from Clark's for my Greenbrier. Check with them if they have them for the car.

Thanks, I am hoping to find some from a forum member if possible.
Then , if unsuccessful, look at the commercial sources.
Or, just make some myself.

I posted a search for my Greenbrier body seal retainers with negative results. The retainers for the FC may be more elusive than for the EM. Between California Corvairs and Clark's, I got all the pieces I need.

Good luck with your search.

There is no trim strip that holds the rubber strip to the body at the rear of the engine. The strip simply sandwiches between the rear air grille and the body.

You are correct of course.
It just has been awhile since I fooled with a EM, being a LM racer type.
I suspect I still will need the piece for the engine side of the rubber seal strip, correct ?
This a Turbo application , so I want ZERO heat getting back into the engine compartment from the bottom of the car,.

You asked for the correct part Dr. Some just read it wrong. 64 or A/C cars will have a different strip at this location.

Yes there is a metal strip or strips at the rear of the engine holding the fabric to the engine. It is one long piece and common to FC's and cars except for engines with harmonic balancer or A/C then the setup is 3 pieces (1964 style). So if you are running the balancer get the three piece set if not the single lone piece will work. Clark's has either style in repro. see page 8.
