Hi, I've found the forum invaluable for information over the last year or two as I am trying to get what has amounted to fresh air, rust and parts into some semblance of a Tr3. 

However I am now onto the mechanical parts and am stumped regarding the attached picture. 

These were among the boxes of bits n bobs. Anyone got any idea where they fit?

Either side of the engine mountings or the gear box mounting, theyre used as stabilisers , there are two types with the engine ones being slightly bigger.

Thanks for that!! I've been wading through parts diagrams of suspension and steering as they were in that "bucket" of bits. Think it would have taken forever to eventually spot them so thanks again to you both.

They are worth fitting to stop oil soaked engine mounts allowing the engine to move forward under heavy braking with the consequence of the fan impinging on the radiator core.

Thanks for the explanation Peter, I was wondering what these brackets did.
