Default Where do these brackets go? (pics)

I am finishing putting a junkyard engine in my 97, I kept everything straight but these two things.
The first is the bracket for the alternator and starter wiring. What does it bolt to?

What is this?

You mean the bracket by itself is for the clutch line hard to soft bracket? That'd explain why I can't reinstall! Hah.

second bracket bolts to the IM, connects to a ground, and supports a solenoid.

Either way, i didn't hook it back on. Just bent the line in a way where it wouldn't be rubbing on anything.

Yes the clutch hardline. The bracket in the first photo goes on the transmission bolt, the brand new one (that's way too long btw) pictured right behind the wiring harness.

The second one as mentioned goes to the back of the intake manifold, holds a ground and connector for the coils I believe. If you're lazy like me, or have COPs, eliminate that bracket, bolt the ground right to the intake manifold, and let the coil connector be free!

Yeah I know it's too long, a couple of old bolts snapped and I improvised with the grade 10.9's I had on hand (intended to mount engine to stand.) Figured it wouldn't hurt anything.

That makes total sense, now I get it. Thanks a bunch!
