Okay, so where does the hole go??

For the last 12 years I’ve attached the heater hoses to the fender brace rod with a zip tie to keep them in place, always knowing that originally there must have been a better way. So I posted the question on this website and learned that Chevy used a clamp. A fellow’bolter said he had one for sale and I bought it. It arrived today and I went to mount it but there ain’t no hole in the inner fender! Could somebody with an original clamp in the original position post a pic of where Chevrolet mounted the thing? I’d appreciate it.

Thanks

Here's a shot of my hose clamp. I assume it's an original hole.........

Compared to Andy's truck, mine is located about 4 inches below, so that the hoses run in the shallow indentation of the inner fender. And I have no idea if that is an original hole. Weren't heaters usually a dealer offering? If so, it would not be surprising that dealer mechanics across the continent put them wherever they wanted.

The bracket on mine was mounted in the center of that depression below the hoses on Andy's photo. [on edit] Just like Kent's truck. (He beat me to the punch. grin )
I didn't think I had a photo, but found one. The actual part is stored away for now.

My truck has a recirculating heater, different from Andy's setup, so there may not be a hard and fast location for the bracket.

Thanks Andy, Kent, and Kevin. The photos really helped a lot, but they raise another question. I don’t believe my inner fender has the indentation, and definitely doesn’t have a hole. If it had I would’ve known where to put the clamp. My truck is a 1950 half ton, so I don’t know why it doesn’t have that shallow indentation. I think I’ll just drill a hole and mount it so that the hoses are parallel to the motor.

Thanks so much for helping me out!

Hey Fonz, thanks for the pic. It helps to know exactly where to mount my new hose clamp, although it appears from others pics that some, like you, have a hole above the indentation and others have it *in* the indentation. Guess it really doesn’t matter, but logic says it would be better if the hoses ran in the channel.

Also, I stand corrected. I DO have an indentation on each of my inner fenders, just no hole. I wonder why it left the factory that way, and how they corralled those heater hoses??

Hole wasn’t drilled if delivered without a heater?🛠
