When I was talking to the mechanic who did the final timing and carburetor tweaking on my D500 CR on Friday, he expressed displeasure with the way my heater hoses are NOT tied down via a bracket. I don't have any brackets.

I searched the internet and found this photo (below). Is that the proper bracket attached to the wire cover on the valve cover? Am I likely to find a part number for it to chase?

(Photo is not my engine but it looks like what I am striving for)

Thanks. Hate to use a GM-related part but this one does look right (and at good price too!):

Went out to an old car shop (10 miles away) to buy that bracket (they said they had them)

BUT naturally, they didn't.

So I got a piece of 1" x 12" 18 gauge steel and some shrink wrap and will make one like the one on the right:
