I mounted it using it's stock bracket from the EA82 to one of the mounting holes for the Brat's fuel pump shelf.... but the Brat's fuel pump is located in a different spot than the other EA81's... basically the bracket just has two holes, and you need to find a spot for it. The hard lines I used from the donor car - I pulled as many of the hard lines from the rear of the car as I could get - as well as the couplers and stuff. They bend real easily to fit wherever you decide to put the valve. I just routed the lines as best I could and zip-tied them. I'm sure with more time and effort you could make new lines, and do a more proffessional job of routing. I can get pics of mine if you like, but again - it's a Brat so it's different under there.

Yes, I know this is a...

...but regarding this:

 

just by the way, all ea82's have a valve that varies pressure to the rear brake assemblies ...

 

I've never heard of this valve. Perhaps you're confusing it with the hill holder?

 

 

That is the Proportioning Valve, the EA82's has it hiding on the Rear undercarriage:

GD, if you don't mind, post some pics of this, I didn't get the valve when I did my swap.  

 

Now I am wondering how hard this is going to be to find.
