    Hi everyone, chasing the piece of tinware for type 4 motor that goes under and supports the two pieces that fit under the fan assembly. It is number 16 in the line drawing.
    Does anyone have a spare they'd part with ?

    Thanks for the fast feedback guys. MY74; since you helped me identify the shield, my searches have turned up 0 stock everywhere :(. Rstuke, great engine build thread !!!! Making my own wouldn't be such a stretch but what did you use for a template? I have nothing to work from.

    Contact Andrew (1500king) at VolksDoktor via Facebook.
    He supplied mine.

    Here's some specs.
    I would cut it out of cardboard and trial fit as I found they're not exact.

    Just a warning if you get an old one. Be careful as they are filled with asbestos (great heat insulator) and if the casing is rusting away it will become exposed eventually. Not much of an issue as long as it isn't disturbed.

    Brilliant ! Thanks for that. Did you add any insulation and if so, what did you use?

    Adrian, I now understand why you don't see too many around: they've rusted out.

    Looks like I'll be getting cosy with my aviation snips :)

    I layed in strips of extractor heat wrap held in place by a few dabs of ht silicone while I bent the tabs over (from memory).
    Should be pics in the thread I posted.

    Yep, found the thread which is really helpful by the way. Thanks for posting.
    The pic you posted, is that a sketchup file?

    I just looked at my own post. Turns out the stuff I used was motor bike muffler packing (get it from any motor bike shop)
    That file for the heat shield came from "The Samba", along with a bunch of photos of his drawings to get the final specs ( like I said not exactly right)

    I just made my own using 1mm steel and motorbike muffler packing. It took me a day and a half and $50 in steel/packing to make. It turned out great but I think I’ll buy the next one and just do a few hours overtime to pay for it.

    It's always that cost benefit relationship between your time vs someone else :)
    Nice job on the shield.
