A few of questions for you. Why are you converting to a hydraulic clutch release mechanism? Are you going to a T5 or similar or are you staying with a toploader? Is the car currently a manual car?

In order for the M/C to be installed you absolutely have to drill a hole in the firewall for it to pass through. I drilled the hole at the same location as the original clutch rod hole (which was a dimple since mine was an automatic). I'm not sure what you mean by the gas line block?

I put one in my 67 and used a 68 distribution block and I have a midland brake booster and it fit, but was a very tight fit and I cursed a lot. Its a good system once you get it installed, which can be a bit challenging on a complete car. I installed the m/c with engine out and underdash stripped, but think it would be much harder on a complete car. If have have questions or need pics let me know. It took me a while to figure out how to properly bleed it out.

i think i will set it up both ways while the engine is out
then, if i decide to use the hydraulic setup
it'll be easier to install
