Hello Colin!
Mine just has a bracket bridging across. Looks like the crossover tube bracket without the crossover tube. See attached photo.Also, the Assembly Manual sheet C5.00 shows it. The main picture shows the crossover, but the View B in the bottom right corner shows the 600 (Spyder) version.

There are a couple of fixed bolt locations in the top of the engine shrouds
for my 1964 Spyder that I am unsure about.

They are both on the centre line of the car, one on the front of the main
fan surround and the other one on the front crossover shroud above the

They are about 2 inches apart when shrouds are installed. I can't find
anything in literature to explain what they are for regarding turbo

The 1961 Shop Manual (section 7-6) shows them being used to carry a Vacuum
Balance Tube bracket and elsewhere shows the main one used for an air
cleaner support.>>

Both of those applications do not apply for a turbo situation.

I was wondering if there is something to go there for the turbo situation or
if I should make up a simple bracket between the 2 bolt locations to give
the shrouds some reinforcement.

Would appreciate any advice/comment.
