My 76 has a heat shield between the muffler and gas tank. Its a curved piece that wedges between the tank, and the trunk floor. Hard to describe, but really simple once you see it. Sorry, but I don't have any pics, and my back is too screwed up to take any right now.

Yeah, there is a piece of sheet metal with a lip that fits under the gas tank flange. It runs fore to aft between the tank and muffler and has a length wise bend to wrap it around the tank along with two rubber bumpers that contact the tank. Probably not be hard to copy if someone nearby has one. I'm in SC

I've never owned anything but roundies...and never, ever have I come across that shield on any of 'em....add'l insulation throughout those later cars is due to higher exhaust gas temps in (infernal thermal reactors, etc) is my guess.

Your tii shouldn't have one.
