Were the US or Canadian engines usually fitted with asbestos covered heat  shields.

This is the only one I have ever seen in this part of the world.

There were some heat shields but I've never encountered that particular style.  The exhaust manifold appears to be different than 'normal' also.  Got a wider angle pic?

pic of the original I pulled off FEF and the copy I made to avoid the rust monsters.  I've never seen anything added to the heat shields like asbestos, but doesn't mean it hadn't been removed or added.  Personal opinion from the parts  books interpretation additional material would not have been factory.

must be a local down under thing.....the truck I am currently working came from New Zealand and though factory with a heat shield, I am guessing a local also sandwiched a nice hunk of asbestos in between as an added....it looks the exact pattern as your pic shows.......

All I can say is I like it, I need to make a heat shield, mine is missing.

I wonder what would be a good modern replacement for the asbestos?

I used some of that header wrap strips and wrapped it around the heat sheild.

there are plans here on the forum for a stock heat shield and I know there is at least one company (VPW I think) that repops them
