"What is this strap for? I can't find it in any of my manuals and a word search on CJ Pony Parts didn't yield any results either."

The strap is used to hold the Heater and A/C hoses and keeps them from falling onto the engine. As some one earlier mentioned above, They were actually made from pieces of discarded tires side walls....if you can believe it.

"So does this look right? It fits okay but I'm using a substitute spring so it's not quite exact. The tension is almost identical and the length is too. "

Looks good. That looks about right.


Anyway, I think part "B" is bolted to a blockoff plate and Bellhousing to hold a Tranny Dipstick tube possibly....from a late '70's-'80's Ford possibly... That's my guess....

I think this is a ground strap. Does it look like it is made of woven wires? Looks like the end that should be bolted to the firewall has rusted away.

Thanks guys! I think I've identified all these parts. There was a period of time for a few years when this car was in the temporary possession of my ex-brother-in-law, and he had his own Mustang. I'm going to assume a few random bits from his other projects made it into a box of parts which stayed with this car until I had it back.

Okay so these have come up to the top of the parts. I know the one on the right came off one of my cars and it's in with the Mustang stuff. Does it look familiar? Also not sure about the one on the left at all.
