Yes, it just arrived this afternoon.
I did get the extension, but I didn't get the universal joint option.
The stock location should work if I offset my two mounting flanges (to be fabricated) to give access for mounting on the side of the tunnel walls. At the moment I'm thinking of 2 countersunk #8 screws on each side.
Since the move is mainly to thread the 2 inch SCAT tubing as mentioned above, I think I'll drop it down 2.5 inches from the top edge of the tunnel.
It was good that the valve mounting plate had to be removed since I needed to re-work (replace) the brake lines in the tunnel. The previous builder had even mentioned he didn't like how they turned out. Using 5052-0 tubing helped.
