I insulated the engine cover with rubatex insulation. It is a closed cell rubber insulation that you have to glue in. It made a world of difference in the amount of noise and heat.

I tried some form of insulation once, something like insulation used inside car panels, forget name of it now, and ended up cooking my coil. Where did you find this rubatex?? Will certainly give it a try. I also tried blocking up the area between dump box and seats which was probably not a good idea as it caused too much heat.

Rubatex is the way to go. My father-in law used rubatex on his and then applied it to mine. BIG difference!

Thanks for the reply on Rubatex. I am in Canada and trying to find out were I can get this Rubatex. Do you have any idea on the type and amount you had to use. Thanks. Spike

How much of the Rubatex did you have to use and any specific type as there appears to be many types. Thanks Spike
