2002 Mustang GT Clutch Replacement Bell Housing Wiring Harness?

Evening -
Im replacing my clutch. I was putting the transmission back in and the bell housing wiring harness (O2 sensors & transmission wires) slipped down between the motor and transmission. I didnt see this and had to let the transmission back down, but now Im confused because I dont remember the metal U-Shaped wiring harness being on the outside of the bell housing. However, Ive never seen a wiring harness mount between the motor and transmission either. So does the U-Shaped wiring harness go on the outside of the bell housing?
Thanks for the help!

Yeah, outside the trans bellhousing. I tucked mine in somewhere above to hold it out of the way while I got the trans in then put it on right before installing bolts.

Yeah, it's the one that holds the O2 harness (bolts up with the top two bell housing bolts). I firgured it had to go on the outside but wanted to double check. That thing gave me a headache last night. So I stopped and I'll finish it up after work today.

Any suggestions on getting the top two bolts in any easier? I searched on AFM and someone said lift the motor up a few inches.

Thanks!!
