Heat Shield


Recommended Posts

My right leg would get hot from the motor casing on the right hand side of the motor. I removed the plastic shield and glued aluminium foil on the inside of the shield it’s a lot cooler now and I don’t have a hot leg. Each plastic side cover has a distinctive yearly calendar stamped on the inside, I’m not sure why but some of the months are marked perhaps it’s the manufacture date.

Top tip for people who have this issue.. Never noticed the heat on the leg myself. 

Thank you for taking time to make pictures as well.

Yes. The last dot in the calendar means the manufacturing date of the component (jun '19).
