Mounting the hydraulic cylinder to firewall

Hey everyone, I'm installing a hydraulic clutch release system and am on the part where you mount the the rod through the firewall, link to the kit is https://www.summitracing.com/parts/awr-hmgm01101sr.

I'm assuming there is going to be some drilling, maybe fabricating a custom plate or something to it mounts/seals nicely, but I was wondering if anyone has already done this and what might be involved in mounting this so I can hook up my clutch pedal. I just don't wanna start drilling anything until I'm sure I'm doing it right.

This is a fresh build with no old parts to go off of, so I have one more question. There are two round holes behind the clutch pedal, a larger one and a smaller one. Which ones is this supposed to mount through?

I tried to just rough in which hole would work better, and it doesn't look like either one will work because the reservoir will hit the brake booster. Not really sure what to do

Ryan, Go to youtube and search for "1971 Chevelle SS - T56 Magnum Install".
He has a lot of videos on his install. Even though it's a Chevelle I'm sure you
can get some ideas.

Re: Mounting the hydraulic cylinder to firewall

This is the McLeod unit. Looks like the bracket bolts to where Booster holes are which you would then mark/drill holes in firewall for MC portion of that bracket

Can't see from the American Powertrain one in the linked pic but don't see that kind of mount bracket

FWIW I have a McLeod on another car (not Camaro). Nice unit and the MC is made by Willwood.

https://www.jegs.com/i/McLeod/673/14...791+4294829509. that black bracket looks like exactly what I would need. I watched one of those 71 Chevelle videos on the install, where he fabricated a spacer and plate. Maybe if I make a plate like in that JEGS link it would work
