Pedal Box Question (not the usual one)

Working on a auto to manual swap.


Swapping a non airbag '89, manual parts from an earlier car.


I was expecting the pedal boxes to be identical.
Instead I found the manual pedal box has an early style round brake light switch mount. The round brake light switch uses a different connector. OK, no problem I'll use the auto pedal box. That will work except that it is missing the captured nuts for the clutch master.


Debating if I should use the box out of my car and some nuts to mount master, or use the manual box and switch my brake light switch pig tail.








Early box with round brake light switch showing bolts/captured nuts.

















Box off my car with no captured nuts.

Adding nuts and washers is pretty easy, but installation may be a pain.

I would guess overall the most painless method would be to splice in the alternate electrical connector (or even make an adapter pigtail)
