Anyone know what or were this part goes on my 16 valve.

That's what happens when a project drags out for five months.

 

any help is appreciated, thanks.

It looks similar to one of the shims that goes on the spare tire well between the mounting tab and the body, but it's not exactly right.

 

What have you been working on?

thanks,

front end, turbo replacement, right wheel assembly, drive shaft, new seals, had to take every thing out to get to the turbo. coolant and oil lines, air intake and vacuum lines. exhaust.

everything almost back together, but that part has me concerned. maybe it doesnt even belong to this project??

Did you put the shims back under the passenger's side engine mount? Still doesn't look exactly like one, but similar.

 

Only 2 other things that come to mind off the top of my head are:

-hood guide blocks in the engine bay attached to the fenders

-shift cable hold down

 

I'm not the world's gift to cars by any means, but I'm usually pretty good at memorizing where certain components go. Having taken 3 TC's pretty much all the way apart I can't say I recall this part. Doesn't mean it doesn't belong, though!

Thanks Reaper,

I'll take a look at the two other options you suggested but hoping another member might come up with something,

hopefully starting the engine by Friday.
