Installing Muffler Carb Snow Shield

Recommended Posts

That second piece looks like part of the engine shield. It wraps around the upper part of the block just below the head of the engine. I don't have a photo handy but I just installed on this evening on my old 1966 Landlord.

id="quote">Jack, that is the same as the one I have, it is basically held in place with the band that wraps around the muffler portion, some members have added a homemade shield to extend below the carb.

Thanks Wayne.

Yes, I figured that out with the clamp.

I was getting confused because I had a heat shield off of a Briggs stored away with it.

I thought the two pieces in the first picture went together somehow.

What does this shield appreciably do for the tractor?

Thanks

The heat is reflected from the muffler to keep the Carb & linkages from icing up. Good Luck sm01

(My 7010 used to ice up...Then it revs way too high! the shield really helped)

      Good morning peeps! I’m always searching for helpful information with my AC collection. Hope to find out new information and pass on my own experience in restoration. Here are some pics of my babies. I’m still looking for front rims for the 410 so yesterday I put the 310 wheels on took it for a drive. Working pretty good but still needs some carb work. Gotta get the 310 running next. Have a great day!😁

      It's in pretty sad shape, but yes I have a yellow plastic cap that I'm fairly certain is what you need. PM me your details and I'll get it out to you.
