AS41 Engine – Day 18 – Shields

I ended up purchasing a set of “shields” from Gene Berg Enterprises that go onto the heat exchanger tins and protect that area in the same way the heat exchangers would.

Left Shield

Honestly, it is just a piece of sheet metal with 2 major bends and a minor one with 2 holes drilled into it for the screws.

If I had access to metal fab tools it would take at most 3 minutes or so to cut these out and make them to fit.

But I do not have such things.

They’ll get cleaned up and then painted with a black oil-resistant paint to keep them from rusting.

They offered me 2 pairs at a much cheaper price than 1 pair would cost (per item) so I snagged another set for future performance engine.
