The "clip" shown in the photo is something you can fab up yourself. The
lower hole is the size of the manifold stud. The top hole is where the
real clip, the clip that actually holds the capillary tube, fits into. It
is smaller than the stud hole. Can't tell you precisely here, but the size
is critical to hold the small clip securely. The clip I am referring to is
very similar to the clip that holds the slave cylinder clutch hydraulic
line to the right side footwell, in the vertical position.
