Default Bracket Identification-1986 K5

I have the bracket shown below and I'm not sure where it is supposed to go. Can anyone point me in the right direction? It goes on my 1986 K5.

Does not look familiar. Did you remove it yourself or did it come in a K5 that you bought?

looks to me like a hook to yank the engine out. the two smaller holes will bolt onto your very back or very front intake bolts.

so not really needed unless, but dont throw it out, never know if you might need it

x2 on engine pulling brackets - when they are used there is one in the front of intake and one on the other side on the rear

Thanks for the help. Problem solved. It will go in the parts bin just in case.

Default Mounting the Bracket

Even though I probably won't place the bracket on the engine, I'd like to know exactly where it mounts. Does anyone have a picture of the bracket in place on a SBC?

Default Bracket Needed for A/C Mounting Bracket

Not to beat this old thread to death, but I am just getting around to installing the A/C. This bracket is needed for mounting the top a/c compressor bracket.
