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.
I'm in heaven with my '67.
