First and FOREMOST ! It is "" NOT "" a 1970- Factory produced LS-6 if it has C-60- A/C.
I ordered a 1970 LS-6 with A/C. It was N/A, So that is why I have my one owner LS-5 with C-60 still in my garage.
Solid lifter cars ( L-78s & LS-6s ) did not get A/C in 1970. So, I am guessing its a L-34 or a LS-5. The A/C hose insulator is held in place by a G.M. type of a Zip Tie. The G.M. zip tie is Appx. 1/2" wide and wraps around the foam insulator & the two heater hoses. The A/C " low side " line lays directly over the Alt. bracket.
The number two foam insulator lays against the L.S. fender well.

NOTE: A-6s do not do well at 5 or 6 grand.

This is where I mounted mine. That is where the deteriorated original was mounted. I see someone makes the insulator now but it looks like you would have to remove one end of the hose to put it on. What I used was the closest looking piece of pipe wrap that they sell for house pipes and then used tie wraps on both ends to hold it in place.

Look in HomeDepot in the electrical department. I know I got some big ones there not sure if they are 1/2" but I would say there at least 3/8".

You need to get a 250lb tensile strength to get a 1/2" wide Zip Tie.
