    Depending on where in Poconos you are you may not be far away from me. I'm located right in corner of NY near PA/NJ

    Welcome Doug! I too am back new to this forum. Also, I am from the Lehigh Valley, just on the north side with the Blue Mountain in the background. Enjoy the mountains and keep in touch.

    From another Doug. I own 2 318's one is a 1983 with 54 blade and 30 hydraulic tiller and a 1986 with a 44 loader which has both bucket and brush forks. As had been said before ask questions and search the site, you should find answers.

Sometimes mechanics just cut them there when working on them rather than using expensive hourly labor charges to unbolt the firewall bolts on the bottom of the firewall as they should have. I have two solutions. Just remove both the top part and the lower part and have it reattached by a good welder who might use a patch on the rear side, or maybe pop rivet a patch without welding that thin metal. A new firewall insulation that I sell would probably hold the top and bottom portions together also, since it has full adhesive backing that is really strong. Hope this helps. jlang@traer.net

    You have an excellent opportunity right now while the engine is removed to install a new firewall insulation kit. This is very important to help extend the life of your engine. Here are a few photos of the kit I sell here on this WFM site thru PayPal. You can contact me at jlang@traer.net if you are interested in more info. or search mylar here on this WFM site.
