    The pic in the Kid442 63 resto thread is a little dark but I think this one looks just like the one on the restored eng pics. Any 2nd strut on that one?

    Hi all,
    Hoping to confirm if the bracket in the picture I posted is correct. It is different than the one in the ebay posting. The picture I posted looks like the same as the bracket in kid442 63 restoration but I am not sure. Joe, is the one in the picture I posted the same as yours? Gotta confirm a purchase and I hoping to have confirmation from someone who has one.

    Thanks

    Mine looks like the bracket in the ebay photo. I’ve not seen the second bracket before, but A/C is a pretty rare option in these cars.

    Thanks Joe. Here’s a couple of better pics of the bracket I have on the way to me. I hope it bolts up to the 62 exh manifold. Wonder if the 63 manifold is any different? Any 63s out there can give me some feedback?

    So I got the bracket and it bolts up to the same front cover holes as the generator bracket with the extended part of the bracket slipping over the extended lower front head bolt that the ground strap attaches to. One piece, very solid bracket. There must either be a late and early bracket or the seller was right and there are two brackets dependent on the accessories. I believe this is the one on kids442 “63 resto thread.
