Where does this brace go?

Where does this brace go?

Postby spacemanscott [OP] » February 27th 2019, 6:45pm

So I'm helping replace the LIM gaskets and disassembly was a two-person effort. Therefore a lot of small items were removed without my direct observation and since this is my first time under the hood of a '94 Safari I don't know that much about them.

Can anyone help me identify what this part is called and where it is supposed to go. I got the other two AC compressor braces installed (one to exhaust, one to intake) but this lil guy is an orphan. I have the long bolt and a nut leftover which I assume belongs to this. Thanks!

I’m still having trouble figuring out where this brace goes. I cant tell where it goes to the alternator or to the engine block.

Here’s the front and back of the alternator and bracket

And here’s the engine block view

I thought it might fit on this bolt that sits in the intake manifold but it turns the other side 90 degrees and it doesn’t line up to anything on the back of the alternator or bracket.

What am i missing?

Mine doesn't have the same style accessory mounts as yours, but I would check the back of the idler pulley and the AC compressor.

Trolls take away from productive work, best to starve the troll of attention by ignoring it and going about your business.
