Q: Heater Hose Bracket Color
My 1968 350 2-BBL was missing the bracket which attaches to the front of the engine and helps keep the heater hose away from the exhaust manifold (NOT the bracket which sits on the right fender well). I purchased a new bracket from Ames Performance. The part came in the same satin black color as many other parts in the engine compartment are colored. I can’t recall, is this bracket supposed to be the same color as the engine or should I leave it black?
A: Sounds like the bracket that bolts the pass. side head with the tang. This bracket is black and if seen it mounted in different hole(s) with the tang in different places. Think the far outside hole under the freeze plug is correct with the tang in the hole directly under it. In lower left corner of the head.
