#1 Small bracket on gearbox mount

Post by Robbiee » Fri Jan 01, 2021 7:39 am

Happy new year to all

Can anyone advise as to what this little bracket is for? Could it be to rivet a heat shield to ???
I think I’ve seen it on photos in various books but it’s never explained
It has a couple of rivets on one end
Thanks
Robbie

It’s the remains of one of the mountings for the forward heat shield. New ones come with it fitted.

You mean the new heat shield comes with it already riveted on?

I think Moss manufactures the correct shield. I have not seen it in person, but it looks better than others...
