Heat riser tinware blank

Post by Sjtw » Tue Jul 21, 2015 2:13 pm

I have twin carbs and a bugpack tuck away exhaust.
Currently the heat risers on the exhaust are blanked off with a hole in the tinware where the pipe would have come through.
I'm fitting a Vintage Speed exhaust this weekend and wondered if the was a blank to fit to the tinware so I can seal the engine bay?
Or what the bit of tinware is that would fit there when you don't have heat risers.
If anyone can point me in the right direction (or tell me I don't really need to bother) that'd be great :)
thanks
Steve

There is no blank for that bit of tinware that I am aware of unless you make one up, or tape over it with some exhaust repair tape or something heat resistant as a temporary job, but the bit you need to do the job properly is this...

It is always best to seal off the top & bottom half of the engine best you can, but as a temporary think it is probably not going to harm too much.
