block of foam (?) on engine of 6216

I think the foam is to force the incoming cooling air to come in through the slots in the hood. This would help keep some of the heat and dust out of the flywheel cooling fan.

Hi, The previous answer is correct. It is to elimate the path for the cooling fan to pull hot air from the muffler up under the hood and try to cool with hot air. When this happens the term for it is: "Heat Recirculation". Good luck Al

I had wondered what was originally on top of the engine of my 6216 where there is now a line of left-over adhesive. Then I saw the picture linked below on this site. Could someone tell me what it is, and if it is needed and/or helpful? Thanks in advance. I just bought a 6216 from its original owner and was motivated to get a Simplicity greatly by this site and all the Simplicity/AC fans (fanatics) that post messages here. So, thanks again! http://www.simpletractors.com/images/800_series_images/t816_features.jpg
