I must have more questions than anyone prior. I searches the forum but have not found anything on this. According to the manual the ebrake handle mounts with 3 screws. I get the 2 in front to work fine but the holes for the third in back are way off. Any ideas? Thanks!

Im not sure if I have the same issue. Mine the 3rd bolt was a strech also, I think the assembly was bent. I was able to put the 3rd one in fisrt, loose, then with a push get the others started, then the bolts will suck it down no problem. I don't think I had an inch though.

Looks like your on your own on this one?

Bob,
I've been comparing your pictures to every pic I can find, including the one in the build manual. I could be wrong but, It looks like the forward tab (with the two mounting holes) is welded at the wrong angle. (I can't see any difference in the e-brake)

If this is indeed the case. The aft mount is very likely in the correct position, I would use it and the tunnel panel to find the correct new mounting location of the forward mount.

I have to agree.
What was the donor?
I need to replace mine as it looks like it has been drug behind a truck and I don’t want to have the issues that you are experiencing
