Firewall | Clutch Master | Brace | Nut

If my memory serves, there is a gasket between the clutch master and the firewall and it looks like with the bracket between the firewall and the clutch master there is a gap now?
Maybe possible, but it wouldn't be usable for various types of cylinders (at least not the way I'm picturing your idea).

Did you ever confirm if this would work for a 968?

I have not confirmed that. Isn't the 968 firewall and strut tower Sheetmetal identical to 944?

Any news on availability? I have a serious flex in my firewall and would be very interested in trying this. Thanks.

I am taking orders now. I received the first batch of 10 brackets, but unfortunately they were made incorrectly (wrong design revision). So, I'm waiting for the fabricator to re-make them. Should be about a week until I get them, then need to get them powder coated.

8 of the 10 are already spoken for, so if you want one of the first batch, pm me and I'll send you my paypal info.

Thanks,
Alan

When do you expect that they will be ready?

Thanks!

Paul,

I've sent a couple updates via email, but I think yours may have bounced back. I think I have an "audipages" email address for you, and that isn't working with my yahoo email for some reason. Anyway, the update is that the first batch was made incorrectly, I received a new batch that was made right, and now they are being powder coated. Should have been done by now, I know. The next batch I do will be pre-made before I collect any payments! You guys have all been extremely patient, and I really appreciate that.

I have two left in the first batch. They should be done with powder coating any day now. I'll keep you posted, but you guys are first in line when they are done. Don't want to take any more payments ahead of time on these, since they have taken so long to put together the first batch.

All 10 of the first batch have been shipped out. If you need any installation help, please don't hesitate to email or pm me. Since these brackets are designed to work in a variety of applications (V8, Turbo, and NA cars, as well as various clutch master cylinders) I have not been able to put together detailed instructions yet.

I received mine today....thanks Alan! I'm going to do a timing belt service in April, I will consider installing it then....need to inspect my existing condition first. Need to look at what needs to be done....plus I need to do a close inspection of the brakes and change the fluid for a track day in May so the timing will most likely be perfect.
