Starter wire heat shield tube

I am putting back together a 68 convertible I bought and I just installed the exhaust manifolds and I am trying to figure out where this starter wire heat shield tube goes I cannot seem to find a pic of this anywhere I just see the red starter wire disappear down by the manifold. If anyone has a pic I appreciate it

It bolts onto the studded head bolt that's between 5 and 7 cylinder. Goes right thru the "Y" in the exhaust manifold. Unless it's an HO car...then it goes next to the driver's side motor mount.

The bent mount you talking about the tube that gets bolted to where geetee said? If so here is a pic of that tube.
I am selling mine along with the OEM style battery cables that fit where geetee said it does.

That is the correct tube for 68-74 GTO, Non R/A. It's installed on the stud with a washer and a castle nut. You may have an incorrect one installed now.

From PY:
Item: RPE192B
Description: BATTERY CABLE TUBE / GUIDE - 68-79 NO RAM AIR
This is a 4" tube that passes thru the exhaust manifold to the starter. Pictured left. FITS 68-74 GTO 73-79 FB

FOR CARS W/ RA-HO MANIFOLDS USE RPE629A




Ram Air Tube that is mounted on the motor mount driver side:

67-70 GTO:



Taking a picture of it won't help much as its hidden between the manifold, block and partial heat riser shield, at best you'd see the top of it with the cable going into it and it mounted to the stud.
