Trick to getting ssp cmc and the firewall????
I have my assembled ssp cmc ready to go through the firewall but I can't seem to get it through. I have been at it for 4 hours. Anyone have any tips or tricks. I have the arm on it as there is no set pins just a c- clamp holding the washer and arm into the plunger. I can't see how I can do it with the arm off but then I won't be able to get the c-clamp back on with it installed.
Any help would be great I'm at my wits end.

thread a line from inside the car to the engine compartment. Tie it to the arm of the cmc then have someone to pull the thread while u guide the body through. I was able to do it by myself just by laying the cmc near the brake reservoir and pulling the thread slowly in and going back outside to re-arrange/redirect the cmc so it's pointing towards the hole.
When your done with puting that in, dont thread the cmc to the firewall yet since the ball and socket(attachment to the clutch pedayl) is a pita.
u gonna need to temporary attack the ball and bearing and push the clutch pedal to the floor while the ball and socket are aligned together. Then with a c-clamp or something wide that u can use to clamp the ball and socket together. Finally, just pull the clutch pedal up which pulls the cmc body back to the firewall and just screw it in.
Another method i've tried is after you bench bled the CMC and attaching it, release the clutch bleed line and push the clutch pedal down while the ball and socket are together (but not firmly attached) and then just clamp them while their on the floor. ( just make sure you close the bleed line before pulling the clutch pedal back up or u'll be sucking in air)
edit: when ur threading it in make sure to remove the socket part on the CMC to make it easier (shorter arm), or screw it all the way down.
