MG TD TF 1500 - Barries Heat Shield

Just setting on the studs, it looks very nice and very professionally done. Carbs won't go back on until I get the Teflon O rings installed. Never a dull moment. PJ

Hi Paul,

How many spacers are you using? I have a similar heat shield but have only fitted one of the insulated spacers to give the air filter more clearance. I haven't used the car too much but there have been no vaporisation problems to date.

Jan. That is what Barrie recommends for a TF - the thick spacer and a gasket on either side of the heat shield.

Jan, Just what Dave said. No need to ad spacers, just slide the carbs out, put the heat shield over the standard insulated spacers with gasket and put a carb gasket over it and re install the carbs. It came with the vinyl coating over the front, remove that and a shinny stainless surface appears. PJ
