Brake pedal

What is the easiest way to transfer the auto size pedal on the right to the manual pedal box on the left?

I thought initially of dismantalling the whole thing but when I looked at the crappy welds... I think I might just cut off the foot pedal and reweld on to the good box.

Also, is there a law or a rule that says you need a big pedal for an auto truck?

I just weld them on... No law that I am aware of stipulating that the pedal has to be bigger

I have small pedal with no rubber on it because I am a bad ass motherfucker with complete disregard for the law.


I would just cut and weld it if it were a customer's vehicle.

Unless you drive with both feet, leave it be.

We followed Boggs down a trail last weekend that was so steep I needed both feet on the brake pedal.

I'm gonna cut and weld.
Might even go oversize and "HD".

Nomar, are you selling the pedal box after you cut & transfer the pedal? I'm looking for a brake assembly to mock up power brakes on my SIIa restoration. Don't need the servo, I will likely source an 8" from somewhere.

I'm going to take a look, but I think I have a metal plate that is the same size as the automatic pedal that bolts onto the manual brake pedal. IIRC, it was part of the kit from Ashcroft many, many moons ago.

The arm comes off pretty easily. IIRC you drift out the bearing shaft thing. Assuming they are the newer style mid-94 and up it should transfer over fine.

I never updated this...

In the end, I just cut off the larger foot pedal(from the smashed pedal assbly) and welded it onto the good pedal- after I cut off the small pedal.
Literally 5 minutes of grinder cutting and 3 minutes of shit-welding that nobody will ever see...

One was a '94ish, the smashed auto one was a '97, so like Ron said it looks like I could've swapped the whole arm out.
