  • Heat shield for 1985 Maestro 1.6 HLS?

    Hello - I have a 1985 1.6 Maestro HLS that has an issue restarting when it has been left in hot weather. Apparently a heat shield was fitted on later cars that prevented heat from the exhaust manifold vaporising fuel in the carburettor, but I can't confirm this and don't know the part number. Can anybody confirm / help / let me know where I can get one? Thanks, Andy

    Here Andy but NLA and made from Asbestos. I would make one up from a more modern material, from say a head shield for an exhaust and double it up if neeed
