I'm running a heat shield. Early cast aluminum intake manifold and dual port exhaust manifold from a fuel injected 140.

I live in central California about a mile from the ocean so I am not so worried about icing. There is a shop nearby that does ceramic coating that I was going to send my seat frames to for powder coating. I might just send them the exhaust manifold too.

I did fiddle with the carburetors yesterday after getting it nice and hot. I found the jet on the rear carburetor wasn't centered quite right. It seemed centered when cold but when warm things expanded enough to not let the piston drop all the way. The piston wouldn't go bellow what its normal position at idle was when the car was off.
