So I landed my truck engine first a couple weeks back, and after attempting to straighten the chassis a couple times and spitting 3 slipper clutches off into the ether, I finally accepted the obvious. I am starting over with a new chassis. It's not hard to imagine another (cylinder)head-first landing, so I also bought an engine roll cage. I finally have enough parts to start assembling things, but I ran into a number of issues with the cage. Yah, yah - I know, Integy sucks - yep, duly noted. No fasteners included (holes don't line up anyway, so maybe they didn't expect me to need them) and it seems they gave no thought to installation with sway bars etc. But the biggest issue is that the attach point at the engine mount is flat, where the engine mount itself is angled:
I've seen pictures of this thing on Revos, but I've never noticed how they handled the engine mount interface. Obviously I don't want to just put a bolt in there and draw it up tight - I'll just bend my new chassis. That weld looks mighty crappy, and it makes me somewhat leery to start reefing on it to make the roll cage flange a similar angle to the engine mount, but that's about the only idea I had.
Any other/better ideas?
