after re-reading this thread, I want to clarify a bit.
the bracket on the back side of the radiator is for the support rods.
the bracket on the front side of the radiator is used to fasten the lip/flange of the grille shell.
since you have the hood style without the cut out, I`m not sure where the front hood hinge bracket is mounted.
I think it still should be on the grille shell flange to mate the grille shell & hood. I believe this because, on the cut out style hood,the bracket is on the grille flange and the hood & grille line up correctly in this position.
