What engine do you have? If it is a small block then the factory style power booster should fit with no problem. If you have a 351W then it is much closer and I am not sure if you have an interference problem in that case or not.

what kind of a hydraulic setup are you using. are you adapting one from another vehicle. I used the JMC hydraulic conversion which is basically bolt on. JMC Motorsports Online Catalog
this is a picture of there setup. the master cylinder just bolts to the pedal with a spherical rod end. if this didn't help I am not sure I understand your question.

do you have a picture of your clutch master cylinder? it should have a spherical rod end that will bolt on to the same place that the stock linkage attaches to. on mine it came with a spacer to line it up properly then it just bolted to the pedal. does yours not have the rod end? this is a master cylinder not a slave cylinder right. when I searched for a wilwood hydraulic clutch system all I could find was the slave cylinder so I can't see what you are working with.

I finally found a picture of the wilwood master cylinder. it is lacking the rod end. you should be able to pick this up at a parts store. here is a picture of how mine is attached. like I said it has a spherical rod end, and a bolt with a nylock washer and a spacer to line it up properly

one other thing. the most difficult part of this for me was fabricating the pedal stop. you need to make sure the pedal can't be depressed too far or you can ruin the master cylinder. one other question, if you are converting a t-5 why did you use the hydraulic throw out bearing instead of the slave cylinder. just curious.

no problem. let us know when you get it going. I used the hydraulic throw out bearing when I had my toploader 4 speed. I had some trouble initially because I received the wrong size bearing, but it worked fine after that. then when I bought my t-5 I converted it to the slave cylinder. it never occurred to me that I might have been able to use the same throwout bearing for my new transmission. oh well it works well now anyway.
