the actual pumps from those years and different models were mostly the same. if one was needed for a different application or model, it could have been reconfigured and the new part number was stamped. Happened pretty often with many of the different components. Probably the squirter nozzle was changed, so the entire unit would have had to be re stamped.

The clips certainly were a challenge for me back in 2018. They are still holding great with never an issue.
Here was the thread back then that visited many solutions.  --->

Install the Booster assembly first.
Go under the dash, and turn the push rod till the rod puts the clevis in the correct position for the pin to go through..
Tighten the nut so the clevis does not move.

The pedal should be high enough to push against the brake light switch.
Install your clevis pin, and use the special locking wedge retainer thingy.  You really don't want that part to come undone - EVER.
If needed you can adjust the light switch till you have your personal desired activation height..

Now with MC loosely in place - install the brake lines to the MC.  I like to have the lines in place before I bolt down the master cylinder. - just seems easier
Bleed the lines. Start the car check break pedal function.  Make sure your brake lights come on when you press the pedal, and make sure that your pedal does not hit the floor.  Check fluid level, and look for leaks.    Piece of cake....  ;)

easy removal.  15 minutes tops.

1) un-clip the booster rod from the pedal bracket.
2) remove the 2 master cylinder nuts and push the assembly forward- (no need to loosen the lines)
3) remove the 4 nuts with a longish 9/16" closed end wrench.  (all done from above)
4) pull the booster. 

Piece of cake....

I've had my Mohawk 2 post lift for over 15 years.  With an 8 ft. garage ceiling, the wife's car can still fit between the hanging down wheels.
A 4 post would never allow that. - - No, I can't stand completely upright underneath, so I use a reclining office chair - works just fine.  :D

What kind of adhesive would you recommend for the plain paper back, Jeff?


Just drizzle a little contact cement from home depot. It is yellowish.  :)

My trunk labels are EXACTLY duplicated  from a perfect original that I had saved for 30 years.
And yes, I can provide them either way - sticky back or plain paper.

After they age a bit, they are indistinguishable from the originals.
I get $7.35 on ebay, or $6 at, but  If that is the only thing you need - ebay is cheaper cause of free freight.
Remember, I offer a discount on everything for my fellow CRG members and NCRS Members. so just ask...
every single label should have the date on it - if not it is an incorrect reproduction.

thanks, Jeff

Ok, I tried all the other recommendations, not all would hold securely.  Some popped out over night.
Some seem to hold, but I really don't trust them.

I think I found the definitive solution...
I took a 1/16" vacuum port cap and pushed it over the clip, went most of the way down, but left a little on top.
They must be pushed in forcefully, but these are in FOR GOOD.  Pretty sure I would have to break them to get them out.
These are not going anywhere EVER....    :D

Many of them worked just right - but still have 4 or 5 problem holes.  Even the flat top clips won't stay in place.  :(

Gonna try this right now.  Thank you...  edit: Mike S, this seems to be working very nicely...   :D

oh... FYI,  I did not have any metric tools, so I used a 1-3/8"  seemed to also work just as well...   lol  :P

Only 2 held.  This is very frustrating to say the least.
My polite way of saying.... lol
