Does anyone know where this goes / what it's for?

Hi there. Just getting the engine into my plus two chassis after a long time away from the project.

This small bracket goes on one of the four engine mounting bolts. Was just wondering if anyone could tell me what it's for/which side it goes?

My guess was the hydraulic line for the clutch slave but not sure!

Thanks a lot

It goes on the engine mounting bolt and supports the clutch flexible hydraulic pipe.

If I'm not mistaken thats a bracket for the flexy to hard brake line junction where they mount to the suspension
