70 brake pedal support/roller bearing install question

Recommended Posts

Decided to do the bearing install for the clutch pedal but noticed a potential problem. A few YouTube videos I saw show the metal bushing being removed and a round hole left over. My bracket appears to be aftermarket and upon removing the original bushings I was greeted with a oval opening. I don't have the kit yet but from the looks of it I'm going to have to do some grinding?? Wish I would have known this prior to removing the bushings.....

 

The original bushings that came out have two flat sides on either side.

I used the kit from mustangsteve. You shouldn't have to grind on your bracket at all.

several people have had problems with mustang steve's bracket and other parts, and i for one would therefore get my parts elsewhere.

your bracket is NOT aftermarket. ford used 2 different styles of bushings.

Well that's nice to know. If I had known it was original I think I would have went and bought a aftermarket unit and saved this one for someone wanting a OEM unit. I have a couple of these mounts and figured this one was so clean it was probably aftermarket. Oops.

i would use a different brand if possible.

I bought the Modern Driveline kit

My late brother has a bunch of bearings and locks for this style of swap but I didn't want to have t weld since I'm not a welder and these would also require some grinding on the bracket.

The Modern Drive Line kit looks like the one from Scott Drake. And it has to be welded to the pedal mount also. 

Taken from the Scott Drake instructions:

STEP #4
Install wave washer onto new roller bushing prior to inserting and installing
into clutch pedal assembly, then install large flat washer and then
install external snap ring. Repeat procedures for opposite side. At this
time it will be necessary for you to decide if you are going to weld the
large outer flat washer to the clutch assembly or not. This is usually
not necessary. Welding is optional and is only necessary if clutch hole
is damaged due to excessive wear.
