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!
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.

Should you continue running DOT3 on the clutch side, or switch to DOT4 like the cap says?

If you never race your car, you'll be fine if you keep your DOT3 fluid.
However, DOT4 can be mixed with DOT3 and is definitely not harmful to the car. The following general info may help you decide whether to upgrade or not:

Polyglycol Based DOT3 - Color - Amber | One of the most common brake fluids found on the market used for cars designed during the late 80s period and beyond. DOT3 absorbs moisture the quickest and has the lowest boiling point and should only strictly be for road use.

Polyglycol Based DOT4 - Color - Amber | The benchmark specifications by the majority of car manufacturers. DOT4 is designed to absorb moisture slower than DOT3 and has a higher boiling point. This is both suitable for road use and track work. Using racing specific DOT4 refined brake fluids will increase higher temperature tolerance particularly under hard braking conditions.

Always take care when handling brake fluid as it will corrode body paint work in a matter of seconds if contact is made. Should accidental spills or drips happen, immediately flush affected surface area with high spraying water and wipe off area.


With it's higher boiling point and lower rate of moisture absorbance, I would upgrade the brake/clutch fluid to DOT4 even if I didn't race my car.
I recently attended a High Performance Driving school for a weekend, so I upgraded to DOT4. Unfortunately, it was before I had separated the brake and clutch reservoirs.

There is a youtube vid on the previous page to give you an idea of the install process.

Either will work great. Just depends on if you would rather cap your current reservoir, or get a new reservoir with the factory molded cap. Please feel free to call, PM or email me anytime with questions.
