Oh, that's the high voltage grounding strap from the valve cover to the block in case of a lightning strike, right?!

Thanks, Lea.  At least I know you  tried. (http://www.massmopar.com/yabb/Smilies/whistling.gif)
 
I found out what it is.  It's called the Number 8 Igntion Wire 'J' Reatainer.
The #8 wire runs thru a nylon grommet that fits into the half circle on the bracket.
Here's one similar.  Now all I have to do is find that %^$# little grommet.

My '65 has a similar setup for #6 and #8 wires.  I found the proper size rubber grommets at the hardware store and slit them to get the wire through.

Once you posted the second picture I knew what it was Stan.  The first made it look like a wire connector.

Shoot.  Missed one I could help with.  I need to quit working so much and post here more. Amazing how much a job and kids get in the way of doing other things.

Don't know about Stan's application, but mine have held up for 30 or 40 thousand miles so far. (http://www.moparfins.com/forum/smileys/smiley4.gif)  Frankly, I'm not sure why they used a different type of bracket for just those wires.

Rubber made for that purpose, unlike grommets from the hardware store, which are intended  for strain relief primarily.
