I figured out the first one is a compressor support 547654. Not sure about the others though

Looks like part 3 is an alternator/steering pump bracket. Not sure why I have it. It seems like it for a different setup than my '77. Maybe it's for a different style alternator or something?

Ah, the last picture is e-z

So one of them is a lower fender support, it goes in the front wheel well just infront of the tyre and connects to the fender and the core support.

The other two rusty brackets in that picture are kind of the same thing, except they bolt onto the subframe and the shell, and allow the inner guard to bolt on in the back of the front wheel well

Thanks for the info. I'm going to crawl under my car tomorrow and make sure the body shop put these pieces in. I hope these are just extra from my parts car.

#547619 is also one of the harder to find 74-76 ish filler plates.

These parts should be off of a '77 or '78. Which part are you referring to as 547619?

Nevermind, I see the number now that I cleaned that part. It is actually 547419.

first three are all A/C brackets, last one is a front filler for wheel well and the other two attach to the firewall to hold the wheel liner.

Yeah that should say 547419. Yours is an early version, will fit up to '78 but originally suits an earlier vehicle. Early '77 would work. After that they changed the tab size and then deleted the rib when they changed the radiator support and inner fender in that area. Have a look to see if you have the matching panel on the other side #547420.

Pic 6 is the cowl fresh-air block off plate, tucks in to the side of your vacuum door.

I don't have the other side. I'm not even sure where I got this one from. Is this the panel that mounts horizontally in front of the wheel well skirt just under the charcoal canister? If so then mine is different or I'm missing this piece. See pic below. If I don't need this piece I will be putting it up on ebay. Also with regards to your response about pic 6. Can you elaborate? Are you referring to the vacuum door up in the cowl where the wipers are or inside the car at the kick panels?

Figured out that panel in pic 4. It goes under the inner fender in front of the tire. I only have the right side so I'll have to find the other side now. I guess the body shop didn't know to put them back on when they did my car.

That's a great illustration.  It's odd how they tacked that on over the existing hardware.   It looks strange to modern eyes, anyway.  The purpose seems to be that it just keeps dirt from getting thrown in that location.

Could be worse. I had a perfect set when I bought my car and couldn’t figure out where they went. After a few years I decided I must not need them and practically gave them away lol. O well, someone got a deal.

Also, here is a pic of the lower panel extension installed:

Thanks for the help Steve. The only pieces I haven't been able to identify as of yet are number 2 and number 5.

Here is another angle of number 5. Hopefully someone can identify them

Oh darn! Yeah that what I'm afraid of doing with this project. I've had these pieces in a crate for over 10 years and I'm cleaning house so I want to get rid of what I don't need anymore. I was very close to throwing that part out. Funny that I only have the one side. Also interesting that the body shop didn't paint and install them, they are the ones that disassembled the car in the first place.

Would anyone be able to supply a pic to show the location of the cowl vent plate? I'm a little worried mine is missing and I won't be able to get it installed. My body shop painted this one and it sitting in my parts bin while my car is fully assembled... I'm a little worried.

I think this is it, no?



Also, Jay, I think you had aftermarket air put in, right? I don't know much about aftermarket AC, but that could explain the extra AC parts.

Steve saves the day again! I would never, ever think it would go there. I took the flapper door out today and looked everywhere, even checked my parts manuals and couldn't find that. At least its an easy install and I don't have to tear my car apart! Thanks again!

Thanks for the help Steve. The only pieces I haven't been able to identify as of yet are number 2 and number 5.

Here is another angle of number 5. Hopefully someone can identify them



I don't recognize it.

By the way, I think your 2 and 3 are Oldsmobile parts.  They're familiar, but definitely not Pontiac either.

I found an application listing for the 15724378 and it looks like it a rad hose support from a 96-98 4.3L Blazer/Jimmy... Not sure where it came from, I've never owned such a vehicle.

Thanks for the tip on the other parts. I'll do some research in that direction.
