You would need to drill out the bracket so the cable will go thru the hole. The cyl is machined different to accept the cyl. If you switching over, trade somebody the bracket that is cable ready. More people want to go hyd. than manual, so it wouldnt be a problem. I would stay hyd if it were me. Ive had them both and prefer the hyd ove the man. Manual has anywhere from 8-15 degrees of play in the nozzle. Hyd hold tigh with no play.
