that worked for the drivers side but the passengers side is different and its at the vacuum disconnect, not in the pig where the newer ones are. I'm going to get some threaded rod and some washers tomorrow and see how that goes.

Threaded rod works fine. I agree converting to tj shafts is a win win.
