Yep, that bracket was from the factory. I've seen it on some of the vans and pick up trucks in our fleet at work that I have worked on throughout the years. I beleive that it is held on by one of the motor mount bolts and it goes up against the front of the starter for some support. They usually do not get put back on when replacing the starter, at least at our shop. So you put locktite on the starter bolts eh? Hope it was medium duty instead of the heavy duty locktite. If not you might be inventing some new choice words if and when you need to take them out. Hope not. At least you know it won't be falling out again. Take care.
