Another question, when running the cables for the speedometer gearbox cable and valve cable, it seems counter-productive to use the bracket that the instructions say to install just forward of the firewall to hold the cables down in the bend area. Especially the one that shifts your speedometer gear box because it is about an inch longer after its hooked up. It seems like it makes more sense to just let the cables come forward out of the firewall and let them make a natural gentle bend instead of pulling them down to restrain them in a bracket. What say you?
I've installed more of these than I can recall. Each one was done "by the book" with zero issues.
