I bought a 3ft piece of 1/4 round bar (like all thread with out the threads), 2 washers, a clip ring, a compression spring, and a stop washer. Cut the bar to desired length, bent one end to a 90 degree, then threaded boths ends. Built a repleca of the vacume bracket out of 1/8in steel. Installed the bent end through the old hole and stuck the clip ring on it. Then installed the bracket with the rod running through the hole. Ran a washer down the rod put the spring on put the other washer on and put the nut on.
