    Check above the oil filter mount. I know on 89 they were there.

    If it has a 350. it should be under the distributor on the left side of the block, right behind the intake manifold(or to the rear of it depending on how you look at it) . you will need a short 1/2 in or 9/16 inch wrench to get to it. I made one. they can be kind of a pain. its a little tight. not much room between the engine and the fire wall.
