Thanks Tom.

Searching through the miscellaneous boxes of parts from when I stripped the engine last year, I found two of the brackets. The etka image is what I was looking for so that I could see how they were attached. I am assuming that both brackets use the one of the three bolts that attach the heat exchanger to the crossover pipe?
