Content-Type: text/plain; charset=us-ascii
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
82 Westy, South Florida
