NOTE: Booster may differ from picture depending on type of booster options you have chosen.

STEPS: Read these instructions carefully!
Important: This kit is assembled for shipping purposes only! Be sure to
check all nuts and bolts for adequate torque prior to use. Don’t forget!
Make sure this kit fits your application prior to painting or plating. Note
that chroming or painting the booster can cause it to malfunction if not
done properly. Parts that have been plated, painted or modified may not
be returned.

  1. Installation of this kit requires the removal of the stock steering
    column brace. The stock steering column brace is the shaded area in FIG 1. The spot welds need to be broken or drilled out to remove this brace.
  2. When the brace is removed, a 2-1/2” hole must be drilled with a hole
    saw 7” from the firewall seam edge and 8-1/2” in from the hood hinge
    bolts. Mount the brackets to the steering column drop mount holes. Line up the 2-1/2” holes in the bracket and the firewall and clamp in place. Use the bracket as a guide to drill the 1/2” mounting holes.

    The vehicle I want to istall this unit to has a four speed manual, with a floor shifter.
    There is no shifter on the column.
    Will the unit interfere with the: clutch, linkages, or anything else that I am not aware of.
    I cannot make long distance calls from my work/High School, where I am a Auto teacher.

    Thanks!

    Mike

      Hello, This unit is the correct one for those running a 4 speed transmission. Always make sure you have proper clearances between the clutch pedal and
      the brake pedal.We do have some customers that do alter the pedal arm for additional clearance. That will be something you will have to decide once the unit is installed.
