FC perimeter seal reatiners
Posted by: bwells ()

Folks,

Are the left and right perimeter seal retainers for the FCs the same as the early cars? I am re-installing my new engine in the Rampside and cannot find the driver side retainer. It is too large to overlook and even the bounty I put on it to encourage my daughter to help find it was fruitless. Before I go to my local Corvair parts hoarder, I thought I would ask.

Thanks,
Bill

This is what I just looked up. Not to step on anyone's toes,just want to make sure that you get the right part for your FC. The FC perimeter seal retainer is different from left to right. The R.H. retainer,part #3777530 is shaped flat looking, and the L.H. retainer part# 37774393 is closer in form to the early auto style but has "u" nuts on it instead of on ithe car. 64 Van Assembly Manual, sect.11-13 sheet A5.00 Happy hunting.

Fred,

Thanks for the info. I will post a side by side pic of car and FC retainers when I visit my local Corvair parts stash.

The engine shrouding is the same for Cars and FCs but the retainer strips attaching to the chassis are different. Like Fred said. I think at least one of the screws on the drivers side is accessed from inside the engine compartment.
