That support is also gone from my '77. Of course, none of the big three have
the right side support listed, only the left!

When you find out about this missing bracket, let me know. My '78 is
missing the same one. The spit I looked at today had both. I was sure that
mine was missing, but now, someone else has it missing, maybe it's not
supposed to be there! huh??
