    Well today I put the old conventional system back on my 89 F250. Since I took the less than a year old MM2 system off and put it on my new Chevy 2500HD. I knew I kept that stuff for a reason. Man that old setup weighs a ton. I used a some new grade 8 bolts to secure it to the frame of the truck. and since I have access to alot of 3/4" diameter stainless hardware I used them for the 6 locations on the pushplates. I know your saying stainless is not as stong as a grade 8 but it should be just as good as a grade 5 as what the parts list called for. The old pump is back on. the valve assy is mounted back where it originally was. I do have a ? I have this one bracket left and I am not sure where it goes. from the condition of it it looks like it was in the cab. The bracket is made from 1/8 flat stock with a slight bend and has 3 mounting holes with these spacers on it and 2 other ones I thought was to mount the joystick. any idea where it goes. I am going to see if I can get a picture

    I Think it may go between the wheel well and the valve body :confused:
