Firewall ground straps. 1965 SB, where do they mount?


Can anyone tell me on which dimple the ground straps mount on the firewall on a 65? And the short strap from body to frame?

There are multiple unused dimples on the firewall, but they differ in position from my 67 where it's straps are located. Cant find it in a 65 assembly manual.

I now know the straps come off the lower rear valve cover bolts.

Ok, I think I have the passenger side pinned down from net research,

At the corner of the heaterbox outer plenum.

Maybe "C" in the first image?

I would assume 66 is the same? I can get you those details tonight.

While changing the heater core I came across a third ground strap not shown in the previous pics.
It is from the firewall to the frame.
