Can someone please tell me where the distributor shield (pictured below) mounts? Specifically what does the hole in the lower right of the photo mount to? XK 140 Explored states that it mounts to an angle bracket but that only begs the question, “What angle bracket? Where?” That part of the shield seems to line up with the bottom of the fender support to which the radiator also mounts, but I cannot see an angle bracket or anything else that would bolt to the distributor shield in that area.
Also, can someone confirm that the left side does not have a similar forward shield to protect the engine compartment from the left front fender area. I believe that is the case, but it seems like an odd design. Engines have been protected from tire mud since the fender was invented. To make a shield for one side, but not the other makes little sense to me.
