vortec cover mount - ls swap

So i have this 5.3 in a 50 AD pickup.. and doesnt have the vortec cover . i have one.. but seems i am missing the mounting plate to attach it to the motor. Anyone have photos of what i am looking for and how i should be mounting it. I suppose i have to go to a junkyard to find this piece as i dont see any covers with this for sale. sure appreciate help on this . GP

Re: vortec cover mount - ls swap

This should be what your looking for, my intake is mounted backwards so it is towards the front of the engine. I mounts with 3 bolts using a 10mm hex head into brass inserts in the intake manifold.

Re: vortec cover mount - ls swap

so wait.. the cover has like one bolt. i assume that fits in the hole on the intake and that metal plate with the three bolts somehow supports it? I dont recall that metal plate on my engine.. i suppose thats what i am missing. Will recheck.

thanks!

Rear bracket has two clips that the top cover clip in, front bolt keeps the whole thing in place.

I am almost positive the bolts are 6mm x 1.00 and about 15mm long. You should be able to get them from your local hardware store.
