Firewall Ground straps

Can anyone help by letting me know where the two ground straps from the firewall/body attach to the engine. (69) Thanks!

Re: Firewall Ground straps

The radio ground straps, part of rpo U63 go from the firewall to the right of each valve cover (as seen looking into the engine compartment at the firewall.) and go under the valve cover bolt along with the factory wire-looms for the plug wires. There should also be two going from the firewall (one to each frame rail) to the frame. Reference RPO U63 Sheets A6 and A7 in the AIM...

Re: Firewall Ground straps

Thanks Dennis. I forgot to look where they attached when I pulled the covers last Fall.

Here is pic of my ground strap at the bottom of the photo from the firewall to the frame before I got it cleaned up.
