What bracket are you talking about? Nothing is needed at the bellhousing end. The only thing I did was extend the cable housing clamp that is on the fender wall because the cable have to extend a bit firther.

flat piece of metal that the clutch cable goes through- one hole for mounting bolt and one larger one for cable. saw pics here once.
