Wire harness plug and bracket location HELP

Hey I just put a new motor in my 2.3l 97 ranger and had a few questions I was wondering if someone could help me with.

First one is, on the drivers side under the truck In between the cab floor and transmission(5spd) there's 2 plugs (small round and white and a little bigger round grey plug) with a bracket connected to them... Does anyone know where this bracket mounts?

And does anyone know the general location of the engine side of the O2 sensor wiring/plug, I just can't seem to find it but remember 100% unplugging it.

And lastly there's a bracket that goes on or buy the starter and these wires run straight to the battery. How does that bracket line up?

Pics would be great as the will save a lot of typing but what ever you guys can do to help out would be awesome, thanks!

Ok I got the o2 sensor plugged in, it the round black plug on the drivers side down by the transmission, it goes over the bell housing and plugs in on the passenger side.

Has anyone had problems after installing a new clutch? The truck is on stands but when I put it in 1 gear and let the clutch out the tires spin for a few seconds then stop and if I throttle up they dnt spin.. Like its slipping but I acetoned all the clutch surfaces and adjusted those adjusters on the clutch basket befor install... Have you guys had to bleed it after a new clutch?
