Ram Block Off Plates

They are different driver side to passenger side.

A pair of original plates. The passenger side is on top, the driver on the bottom.
Note the machined recess on the left end of the driver plate.

You can see the foot of the ram has a recess.

Only the driver side ram has the recess -- the passenger side does not.

Close up of the driver side

You can see where the machined recess on the ram foot meets the recess on the block off plate.

What is the recess for?
On AC cars, the compressor bracket bolts to the block at that location.
The recess allows clearance for the compressor bracket foot.
