Default Umm... Where did this go?

So I'm putting everything back together on a '97 engine, and I had everything separated and labeled when I took it out, but a dog got in there and messed everything up, so now I have two parts left that I can't remember where they go, so if anyone could help, that'd be great! Just want to make sure everything is back the way it's supposed to be...

Haha! I'll start a for sale post immediately!


First one is alternator tensioner.

Second is still up in the air. I remember it was bolted down and also held a bundle of wiring. Guess when everything is back together and there's wiring hanging around, that will be a good clue.

the second one looks like the grounding bracket that bolts onto the intake/TB and sticks out between the TB and Engine block.

That's what I was going to say but it is different than the one on my '99 of course so I wasn't sure.

Unfortunately no, that bracket is in place. Any other grounding brackets?

Could be a bracket on the back of the head by the coils, pretty sure there is something back there.

That's what I thought too, but as I get everything back together, I really can't find a spot for it... It's very frustrating.

Could be wrong, but maybe a part of the throttle tensioner

Pretty sure the first one is the tensioner block for either the alternator belt or the power steering/AC belt.

I think that second bracket is the piece just below (and to the right of) the throttle body that you use to help secure the black cross-over tube.
Could be wrong...

Few posts up, first one is the alternator tensioner. It's already been installed.

The second one goes behind the engine, it bolts down somewhere (which is the mystery now), but I did find the bundle of harness it holds because of the clamp that is around the harness. Compared it with the bracket that was removed from my '95.
