Recommended Posts

Im in the process of removing my fmx and upgrading to a tremec 5speed. I have a break and clutch pedal from a '69. will those attach to the old assembly if i remove the old break pedal?

There are 4 brake pedals

manual brakes & manual transmission

manual brakes & automatic transmission

power brakes & manual transmission

power brakes & automatic transmission

Manual brake pedals ride on the clutch pedal shaft on a manual transmission car and on a dummy shaft on an automatic transmission car. Power brake pedals ride on a dummy shaft high up on the pedal bracket for both transmissions however the foot pad is different for each. There may also be differences in master cylinders between each of the 4 combinations. Completely doable, just make sure you have the right combination. And yes, you can cut down the foot pad on an automatic pedal for a manual application.

Ya, Ken is going to have to post some info before he can do the swap.

The manual brake pedal has a higher pivot point compared to the power which is a lot lower on the pedal. We only use the manual pedal for all our brakes.

You've got that reversed.

Thanks for all the input. Sorry for taking so long to get back. The car is a power brake car, and the pedals from the 69' are power too. I don't have an assembly for a manual trans, do i need to buy one? There quite expensive around $500 or more. and i don't want an after market product.
