    Thanks! You guys might be correct about the air cleaner brackets as it didn’t originally have one. Some one gave me parts and a air cleaner was one of them. It has been sitting a few a years. Problem is it might be for a four cylinder. At the moment I am working on the Dana 53 searching for axle bearing shims

    You can try to use model 44 shims. The Dana 53 is a unique Model 44 differential with unique model 53 wheel ends and axle shafts. In the center its a model 44 at heart.

    The bracket on the left I found itís home! It is the support that goes on the inside of the cab that supports the outer bolts of the battery tray. Drivers side battery.

    Makes sense. Ours had the battery removed from the firewall, when the Chevy small block was installed back in the '70s.
