Default 70 455 HO Plug Wire Routing

I have one spark plug wire bracket I cant seem to figure out where it needs to go. It’s a 1970 455 HO that I just dropped into a 64 GTO. All the wire brackets came off the engine (which was pretty original) but my “before” pictures don’t clearly show where this one goes. It’s marked LH and has a square tab so I’m pretty sure it doesn’t attach to the valve covers. Back of drivers head maybe ?
Appreciate the help…..thx

Thank you, but maybe I’m missing something here; the tab on the bottom is square (whereas the other three I’ve already mounted to the valve covers) are rounded and fit the valve cover profile for the bolt. Yours bolted up using the valve cover bolt ?

Got it ! It’s the boss on the head….stuck my hand down there and felt the open bolt hole. The orientation in you picture helped a lot

Thx….now just have to find the correct bolt

Thank you ! The thread you suggested was perfect, not sure why it didn’t come up when I searched “spark plug wire holders” I also have that single wire holder leftover so I learned even more. Thx again
