1967 GT500 Main engine compartment question.
« on: March 15, 2015, 07:54:13 PM »
The engine harness is mounted to the LH rear apron just after exit from the firewall. Is there a D style plastic clip like those used below the starter solenoid, strap clip or was there a push in style clip incorporated into the harness that pushes into a hole? If it matters, it's a Dec 66 build.
Once you have tasted flight, you will forever walk the earth with your eyes turned skyward, for there you have been, and there you will always long to return.

Every boy looks skyward with longing dreams of flight. Finding shapes in scattered clouds, wishing on falling stars ideas are born.

Yes there was a D style if you are talking about under the dash.

Had to take another look at my picture collection on this one ;)

If your referring to the engine side of the firewall once the main engine compartment exists the interior - no D shaped retainer or clip.

In that area I typically found on 67 San Jose two wire retainers and the loop under the firewall pinch weld as shown below. When there was something left to be found

Jeff:
Thank you.  That was what I remembered as well, a strap. There are two D style clips on the inside of the vehicle under the dash that holds the engine compartment feed.
