Clutch bracket

I have a ZF6 in my truck and after I installed a southbend dual disk clutch I was having trouble putting the truck in gear at a stop. I called southbend about it and they directed me to Liberator Performance, which is the company I got the clutch from anyway. Shawn said he had a bracket that bolts to the firewall for the master cylinder to clip into and not the factory plastic one. I was wondering if anyone has bought and used this bracket. If so do any of you have any install pictures? I was looking at installing mine and am having trouble figuring it out, and shawn's directions over the phone are kind of tough to understand.

Thanks

I'm not understanding how a bracket is supposed to fix a hydraulic clutch problem......Does the Master cylinder move with the stock bracket and not get full pressure or something?

Yeah the factory bracket is plastic and there is a gap between the bracket and the firewall. When the clutch is pushed in the bracket flexes a little so instead of the clutch rod going into the master cylinder the whole way it flexes the bracket a little bit. There bracket gets bolted to the inside of the factory bracket and prevents the flexing.
