Question

I got a question along this posts line, so here goes. Dropped my big old heavi-duty started off my 406 when I pulled it out and the two starter bolts have grease all over them. Why??? Is it because a my old Hooker headers toasting it or what?? If so, come back to johnnyr for his answer, please. Cause, I think I might need a shield too. pdq67

I don't know about the heat shield, but the greasy bolts may be from a oil leak higher up on the engine. The starter bolt holes in the block are open on the top side sometimes (drilled all the way through) and may have caught some oil running down the block. Just my $.02.

If you have a 69 assembly manual, it shows
the shield under L35 sheet A10.

Bolts to block behind upper starter motor
bracket bolt and to an aft facing stud on the aluminum snout of the starter (opposite side that solenoid attaches to). Hope this helps.
