Does anyone know if replacement splash shield is available for a '70 LT1 intake manifold, casting number 3972116/3972110?

Thanks,

It used to be - part # 3758369 (group 3.265) if not the universal "Guard" (GM's name for these) may work # 6271071.

Hope this helps

Just as an FYI, I have discovered that the rivets used for the exhaust heat stove shieids are the same rivets used for the intake splash shields!

They are still avail from GM too. [img]graemlins/thumbsup.gif[/img]

Just a note from experience ... I do not like using rivets to hold the splash shield in place on the manifold. It seems that once the original rivets have been removed, the press fit for the new ones is not enough. I have seen them come out. We use a small stainless sheet metal screw that really goes in tight with no chance of coming out and ending up in the engine. You can also tap the holes for a small machine screw.
Just my opinion,

Very good point Bill. [img]graemlins/thumbsup.gif[/img]
I didn't even think about the 'rivets' because I always tap the holes and use 10/32x1/4" BHC (button head cap) $$ bolts.
