I have a pedal assembly out of the car and on the bench. So I took some pictures.

First picture is a side view. Make sure the cable is straight with the pulley. The red line. Because of the way your pulley broke I think this is your problem. I think yours may be miss aligned.

Second pic is straight at the pulley. The assembly is out of one of my 64's. My assembly has a hole for the tang to go into.

Third pic is the pedal hitting the pulley. This is without the cable installed. I do not know if it could happen in the car but something to look at.

Lol doesn't the dust work like dry lube?

I use a liberal amount of motorcycle cable lube on them about once a year.

@ Roger

Thank you for your Pictures. I will look for the Cable that it is straight with the Pulley.

Maybe there is something crooked. But if i see Your Photos and then my Photos i think it is equal. Maybe ist only a little bit crooked. Maybe the Mother of the Screw is crooked or not right fixed. I dont know. :-(

From California Corvairs i have "new old" Pulleys. I will test it.

But for the Future i think it´s better to make it in Aluminium. It´s much stronger than Plastic.

I contact you over PM.

Hello everybody.

Must the Pulley be greased or better not greased because of the Plastic???
Roger Parent means its better when the Pulley is not oiled!!

And must the Clutch Cable be greaesed or oiled??

The previous owner has used no Oil and no fat. not on the Pulley and not at the Cable.

What are you all doing with your Corvairs???


Thanks for Tips.

Brass would most likely work but is 4 times the cost.
Aluminum 12 inch long round bar 3 inched in diameter is $63.
Brass same size is $213.
