I had to find a mount spot for the hill holder, because the steering linkage is where it used to sit... I got a ea82 hillholder form Bill O. and it was better shape, and the mounts are diffferent, thought the main core of the hillholder is identical... nearly. well, the ea82 one has a smaller footprint the way it's laid out, and I was able to combine both mount brackets to extend the base, and push the unit more towards the engine... clears the steering linkage, and the cable mounted perfect.... just have to get a plug for the top outlet on the HH.
I usedsome flexable aluminum tubing to create a template for to MC to HH line. just happened to be one of the originals the exact length I needed, and bent it by hand, and it fit perfect.... I then rebent and ran the line from the other MC port over and down to my front upper link.
I think I need to drop my tranny crossmember an inch maybe. I think my linkage is rubbing...with the lift before, I didn't bother to do anything for fitting the 5 speed in, and when we delifted it, it just went up in place,and its jammed in there it looks like....
