It has been a few years since that drawing was posted, but the shields are
interchangeable. I made mine out of a piece of stainless steel sheet for two
reasons. first most stainless steel doesn't rust readily (some versions do)
and second stainless does not conduct heat readily. You want a shield that
simply blocks the header heat from roasting the rubber in the motor mount.
The text included with the heat shield is saying that the motor mount(s)
themselves, NOT the shield, is reversible which can shift the relative
position of the engine in the compartment. Sorry for not making that point
