Hi all.

I have been a member but have not posted for a long time.

I live in the UK and am restoring a 1979 Trans Am.

I have a bracket that I cannot place.

I have attached a photograph.

Does anyone know where this bracket goes back on the car?

Thank you,
Nigel

This bracket looks similar to the bracket covering the solenoid starter.

At least, it appears to resemble the one on the Olds 403.

However, I'm not 100% positive, but you may want to wait and see if other members can chime in.

Good luck

Thank you very much.

I think you are correct.

I sent the photo to Firebird Specialist in the UK, and he is pretty sure that it is a heat shield for the starter motor solenoid on the 403.

Thanks again.
