    doesn't look like it, it doesn't grab anything on the master or body to support it. just acts as a stud holder basically from everything I'm looking at

    That old one you pulled was metal I believe, if you ordered a factory replacement the tabs are plastic. That's what I meant by stiffens it up. I think the plastic will flex more, just my thoughts when I did mine.

    Default T56 Fork suddenly hitting and clutch slipping



    I don't see it supporting much. IMO.

    I would just bolt it on with washers. Your pushing a plunger not the Housing.

    No problem. Just happened to be working on the kids car last night and snapped a pic for you. Hope you get it all worked out.

    The only reason they use a u-bolt is so that someone doesn't have to hold a wrench on the other side, you can bolt it up yourself. I've used regular bolts on a stock MC, and both versions of the McLeod MC (the newer one has screw-in studs and nuts) with no issues. I do not have to remove the steering shaft, but it does take some careful angling/finagling to get it around my headers.
