    Question 318 Firewall insulation pad

    One thing I noticed about my 318 is that the firewall insulation pad was missing
    I have read in the manual that it is critical to have one for proper engine
    cooling. I found them on ebay, so I could get one easily enough. What do you you members think?
    I assume the pad is a pain to install, but I think I can do it.

    Thanks

    I would be a bit leary of the kit sold on ebay if it is the same one that I looked at. The one I saw had the insulation cut flush with the firewall. The insulation should project past the metal firewall so it seals against the hood and side covers. John Lang marks his insulation the right way for a good fit and function.
