Default How to install pedal bracket on 67 conv?

Hi, I have a 67 V8 convertible which originally had a 3 speed manual and now has a c4 automatic with a B&M shifter kit.

When I bought the car, it still had the original set up of the clutch pedal and brake pedal.

After a lot of patience, I was able to remove the pedals and the bracket from under the dash. I have removed the steering column for this. Steering shaft is still there. The holes were completely worn out and I wanted to take off the clutch pedal and brake pedal and replace it with a brake pedal for an automatic car.
A friend of mine fixed the worn out holes from the shaft, but instead of using the plastic bushings, he has welded bearings on the bracket, now the pedal support bracket is bulletproof. He did a real good job. The difficult thing now is to put the bracket and pedal back in place. I have tried yesterday, but I can't get it in properly, as the steering shaft is in the way. Is there somekind of trick to get the bracket back in place without removing the steering shaft?
thx for any comments.
By the way, here is a picture of the support bracket with the pedal.
Grtz, Eric

While I have not done this for a 67, I have great experiance with both the 66 (which is a solid steering shaft) an my 68.

This would be my approach. I would first ask if you tried installing with the pedal removed from the bracket before installing the bracket itself ? I would remove the pedal, try slipping the bracket over the steering shaft and secure with the (2) small sheet metal screws at the firewall (loosely) I think there is even a sheet metal screw at the front. Dont tighten them till you inserted your pedal and shaft so you have some flexibility with the bracket when aligning up the pedal shaft in the bracket. Once the pedal is in, start all bolts and then tighten screws and all bolts.

If its still difficult to get it over the steering shaft, try loosening the bolts ob the steering box to allow the steering shaft to drop down. Just sont forget to tighten them back up when finished.

Okay, I got it in. First I removed the brake pedal. Then with quit some patience I could relocate the bracket. Now, I have to put the bolts on, put the pedal back in , the brake pedal switch and the piston to the Mastercilinder. Should take me another hour. Lucky that the seats are still out, that gives me a lot more space to work when I am laying on my back..

grtz

Eric
