We had to modify the linkage to the clutch pedal on mine, and add a piece of plate on the firewall so that the master would quit flexing due to all of the rust, and I still need to adjust where the linkage connects to the clutch pedal to keep it from binding. I can't remember what part #'s these are, but you can get them at most parts stores. I think it is a chevy master, and jeep slave (or viceaversa). I don't have any real good pictures of the install, but it is not too bad.

I use the bellhousing from '85-91 465 trannys on my junk. Its set up for hydraulic and then just use the stock master cylinder on the firewall. On my '72 chevy i cut a hole in the firewall for a 91 new body style truck master, and am going to run the internal slave cylinder that on my '97 nv4500.

I need to dig through my junk, but I think I have another hydraulic clutch bell housing, if not, I can send you to the right wrecking yard to get one.
