    Clutch & Brake pedal

    Hi Folks
    Ok , let me say first I claim to be no machinest but I do know just enough to get me in or sometimes out of trouble
    I've been working on a customers 32 ford, and it was time to set up the clutch and brake pedal assembly, along with locating both masters.
    So I thought I should post some of the photo's along with some why's and how comes :thinking:
    The first photo is the shaft I had to fab to mount both pedals to.


    This shaft was mde from 1 3/8 bar stock that I drilled threw from one end in just over 2 1/2 inches and then drilled threw the side to intersect with each other so I could have an oil (greese) passage.

    After that was complete I drilled a 1 3/8 hole in the chassis and dry fit the shaft to get a degree of angle reading off of it so I could add a 3/16 plate at the same angle to the shaft.



    Now I can Tig Tack a tube to my clutch pedal and and get an idea were my linkage will go.


    I am using 6061 t6 5/8 aluminum round bar for my linkage, I then drill a hole in the end and tap for a 3/8 rod end to fasten to my dedal as an actuator rod for my clutch master.

    Next I fab a mounting bracket for the clutch master along with a gusset for strength and tacked it all in place




    Now was the brake masters turn, I used the master for it's own template and started with a simple mounting bracket.


    I had to notch out the edge of the mount to fasten it to the crossmember tube I had placed in it's way for support.




    I like lots of gusset when it comes to the brake master so I added a nice arched swing down to take advantage of Wilwoods post mounting holes.


    And here is what we look like all tacked in place

    Top notch work Steve, thanks for posting.
    How'd the weekend go? Well, at the moment it looks like a dolphin that's been caught in a boats propeller.

    Thank You Trevd It was also assnecial to keep the master from flexing backward, It may have been overkill but needed it to blend in with the rest of the crossmember.
    Thanks Steve
