Two unidentified brackets on 2004 4.7 HO

Putting things back together and I realize that I didn't document as well as I usually do. The first bracket seems to fit between the timing cover and the bottom of the a/c compressor. Not sure if that's the right place for it.



And the other bracket is L shaped and I vaguely remember it was attached to something between the right side valve cover and the throttle body. But I'm not sure.



Would greatly appreciate some guidance. I'd like to get this wrapped up tomorrow.

Pic one is correct. Pic 2, I don't recall a bracket there. It might support the vac. line that is supposed to be heading from the rear of the valve cover up to the oil filler.

Thanks on #1. (seems like an odd and unnecessary piece of metal there).

Possible, but I don't think so on #2. Since it lays flat like that (and I can't see any other way to mount it), the vac line would need to have a plastic rivet connector. It might, but I don't think that it does.

I did my spark plugs yesterday 03 Overland and the last plug on left side has the bracket attached to the coil nut. There is another plug with red markings that has 2 screws underneath and the 2 screws just allow the plug to sit into the 2 holes you see on the L bracket.

See plug below with red markings sitting on the L bracket.

Ok, that connector goes between the last two coil packs on the passenger side and mounts on that bracket. Excellent - thanks!

The part in bold caught my attention. I see a small fitting on the side of the oil filler, but I don't recall anything connected. Should there be something there?

I do have a mystery part - it looks a lot like the CCV system tubing. It could be the "vapor purge harness", part number 53013636AD, but I'm not sure that's it. I spent a ridiculous amount of time trying to find a home for that thing yesterday.
