Alright guys, back into it, got sick and it put me down for a bit.
Got back to the yard, picked up the hydro boost I previously passed on $26, found out $40 rebuild kit will seal it up, common problem.
Started out with this, had to press out the factory Tahoe mounting bolts, fill in the holes, drill 64 mounting holes, and build clutch master mount.
Unfortunately this meant butchering the first plate me and my welding buddy put together.
My welding buddy contributed a pipe nipple to the clutch mount and stuck around to help me navigate the details of putting this setup together. Remeasured the clutch setup, ended up with 12 degree down angle to hit the factory clutch mount.
Test fitting, piston is close to spark plug wires, but not much I can do. You can run the hydro flipped 180 but that puts the lines into the clutch master.
Straight shot right to the pedal. Have to put a couple beads in the push rod, hole is way bigger than 64 pin, have to close up the slop.
Welds smoothed, sand blasted, and ready for paint.
Also found a gauge solution. Still thinking about how I'm going to implement them, but $27.32 for 04 trailblazer cluster, couldn't not get them.
Possibly cutting it up and putting them in factory holes? That'll be down the road, for now just going to poorly mount them.
Also picked up a grommet for the firewall and fuse box mount so I can hang out under the dash. To be continued.
