Can you identify?

I have a 1987 cherokee pioneer w/ 4.0 ac 4x4 4 door wagon that I removed the engine and front end down to the frame, cleaned and painted everything, then put back together. I have (3) brackets (see photos) that I cannot seem to identify or locate what they are for or what they do. I got the truck running and the only thing that is different is there are cables and hoses going across the valve cover that were not there before. If you look at the photos and can identify any of the pieces or know thier placement or location I would love to hear from you. A photo of them mounted would be helpful also. Thanks in advance. PS: I took (2) angle shots of the first bracket, and (3) angles of the other (2)

They look to be brackets that hold either parts of the harness or hoses out of the way of hot or moving parts on the engine. If you cant locate exactly where they go, look around for wires or hoses out of place or close to something they should be such as a source of heat or the fan, belt, ect. Might be part of what youre talking about with hoses for the valve cover. I always look for extra threaded holes on the motor or chassis and see if it would make sense if a bracket is needed there. Looks like you've done a ton of work under the hood. With that much of an overhaul, hoses or wiring may not end up in the exact spot it was before so its hard to identify where those pieces go. If all else fails, zip ties will keep wires out of the way.

Jeep and motor look really good BTW!

Last 3 photos are of the bracket holding the fuel line at the back of the intake manifold.

If you own a Renix Jeep, you'll want to check this out.

Does it go on the RH side last bolt hole on the corner with the sheilding (cupped side) facing out for the hose to lay in?

Facing "in". Hose will be between bracket and intake manifold.

So your saying the braket needs to be flipped over so that it keeps the hose next to the intake>? I thought it was to sheild it from the heat of the motor not the other way around!?! Do you know why it is like that?
