I finally got around to completing this mod. However, it was a pain in the ass! I had such a hard time taking the clamp off the stock brake/clutch line on the firewall side because I could not reach in there with my right hand and my injured left shoulder doesn't have its complete range of motion back to allow me to do it with my left hand. Therefore, I ended up bending the bracket provided with this kit on the clutch reservoir so that it was close enough to attach the stock brake/clutch line to it. Another problem I had was with the small clamp that is provided with the plug in this kit. It was way too small and I couldn't make it go over the tip of the stock brake/clutch reservoir nipple. I ended up having to purchase a bigger clamp from Auto Zone. It was slightly bigger than it needed to be, but small enough to prevent the plug from coming out.





This allows the usage of the stock brake/clutch line, which is what I wanted all along. Therefore, you don't have to go through the hassle of replacing the stock line!

Glad you got it in! That clamp on the firewall can be a real PITA! We recommend a long set of needle nose pliers, preferably with a small bend in them like so:

This will make short work of that clamp.

As for the cap clamp, it is a bit small, but if you open it up using 2 sets of pliers, it will provide a very good hold.

Feel free to call, Pm or email me anytime with questions.

Best regards,

For those who can't seem to use the small clamp that was provided, I used a zip-tie and turned it towards the bottom so you can't see the little square receiver of the zip-tie. I tightened the crap out of it and I cut the excess. It blends in well because it's black.

How easy was it to bend the bracket and what did you use? Just a couple pairs of pliers or did you need a vice? This sounds like the approach I would take. I tried reaching for that firewall end clamp and it does not look like something I'd want to pull a muscle dealing with.

You don't need to bend the bracket. I installed mine just fine. I used a pair of pliers to reach the clamp at the fire wall. The best thing for working on cars is a steady hand and patience.

Just a few weeks after I installed mine. As you can tell no more dirty brake fluid and no more clutch problems, I would also suggest ideal garage master cylinder and tick high flow clutch line with this kit. Works great, thank you JDP!!

Yeah--2 things I don't possess much of, hence the reasoning for my question and why I don't work on cars much (that, plus my back and hands are too valuable to me to injure).

Lol ya I am sure you could bend it if needed. Would be easiest with a vise.

The bracket is easy to bend, being that it is not too thick. I didn't use anything but my hands. Once the bracket (along with the new clutch reservoir) are attached and screwed in, I simply bent the bracket towards the firewall as much as possible (until the cap of the new reservoir touched the side of the stock brake reservoir). It doesn't take an extreme amount of force to bend it with your hands.

Correct, you don't NEED to bend the bracket. I did so mainly because with my left shoulder injury I wasn't able to get to the firewall clamp on the stock clutch line. However, it turned out to be what I wanted in the first place...which is to use the stock clutch line.
