Was your bracket thinner than 1/2" where the housing stopped? Did you use the stock c clip type retainer to hold your cable in your new bracket? How much taller was your new bracket? 1 3/4" roughly? I'm guessing that because you made the cable stop even at the bottom of the base for your selector cable. Thanks so much for those pics!!! I think I will finally get mine in this month, I'm still gonna have bolster issues though. I'm gonna machine an alu square spacer, the same size as #20, 1 3/4" thick to space mine up.
