because the new starters have superceeded to a slightly different starter that one of the 2 mounts for the heat shield was relocated...
I put a starter in my 4.7 while I was doing the work to it (preventative maintainence, only cost me 54 dollars for a mopar unit
). I knew about this updated parts but our slightly special-ed parts guy just looked at me crosseyed instead of actually looking for the part. So mine ended up getting installed with only one bolt holding the shield in too (ended up getting the jeep started the night before thanksgiving with about 20 minutes to close, I wasnt going to push it out again because I was waiting on stupid parts guys). I bent it up a little to try to prevent rattling, ultimately Im sure it will sag over time but for now it will do.
Glad it worked out for you! considering it was in the driveway with handtools I would say you did excelent, i am pretty sure flatrate is up in the 3.0-3.5 range on a 5.7l
