Heat shield for a 300D

Is there a heat sheild (sheet metal) below/behind the air cleaner? not the little cups that protect the rubber air cleaner mounts but a more substantial (~10 square inches at least) sort of on the left of the battery tray and above the exhaust manifold? In the picture I recall seeing one between the AC line and the exhaust manifold....

I saw a picture somewhere of a 300 SD that was pointing out the air cleaner mounts and the oil return tube. vuisisble in the picture was aheat shield. My 300D does not have one....is it missing? did it ever have one?

The 85 Kalifornia has a heat shield between the battery and the manifold/turbo. The 83 has no shield.

The 79' 300SD I got my non-EGR manifolds from has the starter/battery heat shield by the 5th manifold port.

300 SD Heat Shields

Anybody have a photo of the heat shields on the 617 exhaust manifold, as installed in the 126 chassis? I need to braze some parts & mounting tabs back together, kinda lost track of what goes where... Thanks, BigMac
