Heat shield on the exhaust manifold

Hi guys. I have a 1969 351w in the car. The heat shield on the exhaust manifold appears to be in very good shape so I don't want to wreck it. Is there any way to get it off without pulling the motor? Maybe I am being too gentle but it seems too tight. Thanks in advance

Remove the left motor mount bolt. Use a board to protect the oil pan and a floor jack to tilt the engine a bit to give you enough room.
