Heater Hose Hangers Question
#1
Need to know what kind of heater hose hangers go with my 71 Mach 351 C. right now they are held up with zip ties. Can anyone tell me what and where to get the right ones? Would like a pic if possible. I have found correct ones for older Mustangs but haven't been able to find any for the 71. Thanks

Don't believe there are any 'factory' heater hose supports. Typically they just let the hoses lay along the valve cover. Before they started using electric chokes, one of the hoses would rest in a U-clamp against the choke cover, as the hose warmed up, it would heat the cover and the internal spring would expand to move the linkage holding the carb's choke plate open.

Seen many variations on the zip tie approach as you have.

Here's what I did with my heater hoses. I bought part #383207-SK from NPD, but I have seen them on the "help" rack as well. The brace has 2 holes that I suspect are there for this very purpose, if not they work very well. The retainers are about 1" diam. and you may need to trim off the tabs just below the clips if you get my meaning. If not I'll confirm.

The holes are actually for the wire that services items such as a P-Top on a convertible, P/W option etc. It terminates on the battery side of the starter solenoid. In absence of these options on your car, could be used for other purposes such as shown here.

I did say "if not, they work very well" and yes, it worked for me on my car. An unused hole can be a waste!! Our friend is looking for an alternative to crap zip ties. This solution works and keeps things neat.

I simply answered your query regarding what the holes were for from the factory. Your welcome.
