Default Installing Engine Wiring Heat Shield

I have reinstalled my worked-over cylinder head, the exhaust manifold, the upper and lower engine heat shields and the support bracket. I'm having problems with the engine wiring heat shield, though. Can't seem to get the thing to fit in there.

The only way I can figure is to wait until after I get the flange at the catalytic converter bolted to the header and then put the shield on. Is that the way to proceed? If I can I would like to install the shield first before moving on to reinstalling the cams and everything else.

Currently the engine is jacked up as far as it will go in the engine compartment and on a jack stand.

Thanks!

RVC

Responding to my own question here... A while back I asked how to put the Engine Wiring Heat Shield on. It was really giving me a hassle and I had put several hours in trying to get the thing installed.

I wondered why no one responded and then when I finally figured out how to go about it I discovered it was too stupid a question to ask. But just in case someone else runs into this situation...

The engine was jacked up in the engine compartment as far as I could get it, but the exhaust was just kind of hanging there about 6" lower. All I had to do was block the exhaust pipe up to the level of the header and the shield slipped right in.

Possibly, but hardly likely, someone else will befit from this.

Man, I never saw your original post. But even if I had, I didn't know the answer!

I'll bet either Nitro or Handy would have known it.

Yeah, probably several others did, too. But like I said, too dumb a question to bother with.

I'm right down the road from you. Maybe we could get together for coffee sometime.

Well, I don't drink coffee, but a cold beer never hurt anyone either! I'll be tied up for a while on this bathroom rebuild and wife and daughters doctor appointments, but you never know! I'd like to meet some of you guys that live in the area. Maybe we and get something worked out one day this summer and include Price and Soooo Big. I'll be embarrassed to drive the GT, but it is what it is. I'm not sinking any more money that I don't have to into this car.

OK, we'll see what happens. Balls in your court and hope to hear back from you.

Probably ought to use e-mails from here for this personal stuff.

Thanks.
