Title: 2 Clutch Pedal Questions
Post by: Steve on August 18, 2008, 05:26:14 AM
Anybody ever convert a shift car from Manual to Power Brakes?
 
Question #2
How the hell do you get the clutch pedel return spring back on?
Does it go over the pivot bolt or under it???
 
The FSM isn't too specific on how the spring goes.  If I go over the pivot bolt, the spring looks like it will restrict the throw of the pedal.  If I go under it, it doesn't have any tension on the pedal to return it.
 
WeeBee, don't forget that booster.  We have some fabricating to do

There was a good thread somewere over on the other dock about the difference between the manual brake clutch pedal assembly and the power brake clutch pedal assemply...it had pics too.

The are different animals due to the location of the master cylinder and booster and the location of the brake pedl mounting points and pivots.

Yes I know.  But with a couple of strips of steel, I can make this bracket work with little effort.  It will be pretty easy actually
 
I have to take 2 studs out of the pedal assembly and extend the bracket to meet the lower holes of the booster studs.  I figured that out tonight.  I wish I hadn't dumped my booster, otherwise it would be done now.
