Thanks Keith Fulp

Post  Doug Rahn on December 4th 2016, 10:46 am

I want to give a shout out to Keith for some parts he made for me. He's made some stuff for me before to use on my Econoline project from a CAD drawing I sent him and as always, top quality. This time I had him make me some exhaust port covers for some work I'll be doing soon on my Mustang. In the past I have always used good ol' reliable Duct tape but if it stays on there for any length of time you end up cleaning off the residue and then there was the chance of a puncture and getting debris in the ports. Thanks again Keith!

Those block off plates look great. Glad to see someone making them. Now we need a matching 4150 and 4500 flange block offs.

Hey Keith needs to autograph them in the fancy cnc mill. Signature Edition

No sir, but that is a good idea, although it would raise the cost.

Lem, what I did think of trying for a good seal was to etch the inside surface and apply some sealer then bolt them down lightly to a known flat surface with some Pam sprayed on it. Maybe leave about a 1/32" or 1/16" thick form in place gasket. Oh, I forgot to add that I did order some Spade Head Thumb screws with a flange for quick installation and removal without using a wrench.

Why not some closed cell  foam attached to plates with spray adhesive? Trim outside after mounting foam on plates.

Make sure it is closed cell foam because open cell absorbs moisture with temp changes.

Y'all going to think I have gone crazy here.

You need a pair of panty hose color and size don't. Cut the legs off at the crotch.
Fill each leg with half a tub of this:
https://www.amazon.com/Gallon-Orange-Premium-Desiccant-Indicating/dp/B01I5Y9H6A
Tie a knot to close the legs off.
Place one leg in the oil pan and the other in the lifter valley or carb plenum. Seal it up.

If you open it later and find the crystals have changed color. Put panty hose legs in the microwave for 3-5 minutes to drive out moisture. Color should change back.Ready to reuse over and over.

Now it is up to you on explaining to wife or gf why you are playing with panty hose.

Okayyyyyyy! But just to be clear, I didn't have these made to keep moisture out, they are to keep debri out when I fabricate headers in the car one tube at a time.
