If you want to install one and don't have it, there is a small backless insulation piece of fiberglass sold in home Cheapo.  It's light yellow.  You can get that, and wrap it in HD aluminum foil.  That's all it is.

I like using an aluminum heat sink (a gasket cutout in aluminum, about 5/16ths inch, and cardboard material on either side) which works well for protection against heat between a cast iron intake and the carb base.

got the carb back... no start.. :( so i cranked it with the fuel line open and no fuel coming, so i went back and put air through the tank and got the fuel flow, now when i press the gas pedal, its shooting gas in but no fire, so i have a spark plug tester and its showing sparks, i think i prob flooded it but i hope it starts. the carb looks in good shape and super clean now. once i can get it running, the hood is going back on and the car is done! cant wait to drive it a few more times before i will have to store it for the winter.
