Stainless heat shield
« on: December 13, 2019, 12:52:50 PM »
Hello, I am installing a 17058253 (1978 Oldsmobile) carb on a 1966 Buick intake. The Buick intake uses the stainless heat shield under the carb. After 50+ years the exhaust gases have burned through the stainless plate. I'm just wondering if it matters which plate I use as a replacement.

Regards,
Dan

Do you have a picture of the plate that you can post?
