It would be easier, but still leaves the slave on the hokey early bracket, angled slightly off axis, and being cooked by the downpipe.Wouldn’t it be a lot simpler to thread some round stock and make a longer pushrod to work with that slave than pulling the trans to swap the fork over, move the slave, and fab a hydraulic line to run across the firewall?
That’s a great photo. Thanks!
I went cheapo on the washer. But it slid right in and worked right off the bat with good pressure. It comes with a flimsy mount, but I still had the OEM one. Either would have worked fine. I was pretty surprised it worked as well as it did.

If you only need to slide the tranny back a 1/4", couldn't you just loosen the trans to bell housing bolts about that much, and not have to use the dowels? My F engine w/ 3 speed has 13 mm bolts, so dowels are harder to find...If a pivot ball is to be added or removed the trans must be slid back about 1/4" to allow the pivot ball BOLT to be completely removed or inserted due to the length of the bolt. You can free the bolt from the pivot ball, but there isn't enough room to back the bolt out. If, for some reason, you had a pivot ball on the "other side" from where the fork is there is no need to slide the trans. At least not in my case (75 bell housing). Simply move the fork over to the other pivot.
Does that make sense?
Edit: Sliding the trans was very easy, but I already had made a couple dowels and the entire setup hadn't be together long enough to "fuse". Just a screw driver sufficed.
