This is the first time we've seen rod ends (a.k.a. Heim joints) used to secure an engine cage, but we think it's a great idea. Rod ends can be adjusted so they will still install easily after the heat of welding pulls the `cage tubing away from its original position. Since rod ends are strong and rigid, structural integrity is retained. This engine cage unbolt for easy engine access.
