Came with the kit, there's a picture of it in my build on the board. I modified the firewall so it would sit straight. If I remember it might of needed a little cutting to sit in the original position. Its a manual.

I know I saw that post about straighten out the mounting but can't find it.
Where can I find it?

So the alum MC is the one supplied by Ben?
He Changed from the big cast iron.
Can you give me an overall length on that MC, mount face to nose?

BTW, nice work.

6 inches long from back side of mount point, 3 inches wide if you use allen screws, flush mount, to block unused ports. The cup is reversible to mount in either direction. The kit is complete came with everything you needed including front brake lines, guess I should of taken a picture of everything it came with. If I remember I'll scan the invoice.
Oh and thanks for the compliment, it helps to keep me motivated.

I see the pics with the PN but I can't quite make them out. No hurry, but when you are working on the car next time could you post the PN and Brand if you know it. Thanks

Interested in this as well. I need to replace the Fairmont M/C on my car and do not want to cut any more than I need to. Specs (numbers) on the M/C would be interesting. Is it 1" or bigger?

Doing a bit of googling.. I got the number off the picture in your build thread. It may be a Hyundai part# 58600-4A610. I did not find anything here in the US on it. It looks too big in diameter to be used in the OEM position. Googling around, I ran across a 95 mustang with a 1.062 dia, but it looks too long. I have one of these at home and it will not fit without modifications I am not willing to do.

Just talked to Ben. He said they changed to this MC from the big GM one a while ago because it is much smaller. Has the deep pocket for manual push rod set-up. I too have the Fairmont 7/8" which works okay but has the long pedal. This one is 1" diam. He will get full dimensions to me. Says it may not be available in the US, gets it from one of his wholesalers. Shows pretty economical on the Asian parts supplier sites.

Talked to Ben. Yes, 6" long, 1.5" diam, 1" cylinder diam, deep manual brake rod socket, outlets both sides. So it should fit without mods, I think. Too bad this wasn't available before. Looks like the good option.

Ben's price for the mc alone is about $100 incl shipping. I have looked around and other than offshore I don't see any aftermarket sales here. I have not contacted Hyundai dealer, I'll check them today I guess.
