Wire gutter?


On my 65 6 cylinder rad support there was a plastic flat gutter that held wires crossing over the top from one side to the other.  

It is held on to the support by 4 mounting hex head screws.  The plastic has long since vanished and am unable to 

find anything in any parts catalogue.  What is the correct name for this part and any idea where repro available?

Its only on canadian 1965 chevelles and beaumonts.  US cars never had it.   Not reproduced at all.  I think its the same as the canadian pontiacs in 65 66.  Same holds true for them,  only in canada.   They are always damaged, cracked, and broken around the screws.   try to find one on a 65 66 canadian pontiac if you need one,  would probably be easier than trying to find a beaumont.

 Oh boy and good luck with that too, they're always broken and brittle. 

Also 65-66 Canadian built full size Chevy used it as well.

What did the US chevelles use?

The harness didn't run across the top, it ran down lower on the US cars. It's weird but true.

On '64 Parisiennes it ran under the top channel of the rad support ... no plastic gutter.

How long is the gutter Chris? I might have something.
