61 comet exhaust manifold heat shield

Post by 61 Waycrosscomet »

removing the head and exhaust manifold on 61 comet 144 engine. There is this 2 1/2 by 2 inch flat metal piece that looks like it deflects
heat from the manifold. Does this have a specific name? purpose. Do I need it? Can't seem to find a replacement online.
Guess I could get someone to fabricate one for me.
thanks.
