Not "exact" replacement, but seems OK
95 F-150 XL. I could see from the video that everything was not exactly the same. The bolt heads on mine are not the "cowboy hat" shaped ones that need to be properly placed, mine are just bolts with flat heads. The truck is 22 years old, maybe they have been replaced before, but I dont remember doing so. Also, the washer for each cable("Top Hat" shaped - sorry I dont know the tech terms...) is not the same and I couldnt use it. Re-used the flat washers from the old install. Otherwise, seems to be plenty close enough, solid and working well.

A1 Auto is just the parts source I have been searching for. They carry just the right hard to find parts. I literally have looked for hours and days for parts for our dear old truck, then I look in A1 auto, and there the reasonably priced part is. Plus I get my parts quickly.
