4 speed conversion pedal assembly question
Posted by: Ron62 ()
Date: November 14, 2020 01:52PM

Converting from a PG to 4speed, on my 67. Looking at the pedal assembly and bracket it looks like the steering column will have to come out to swap the assembly. Is this correct or am I missing something.

No, column does not have to come out. Just remove the PG brake pedal and install the 4 speed pedals.

Do you have '67-9 pedals? They're required to get around the larger 67-9 column.

Cant just change the pedal. The PG bracket does not have a hole through both sides to accommodate the clutch pedal. It only has a single hole and bushing on the right side. I have the correct pedal assembly for a 67. Just don't see a way to replace it without pulling the column.

Craig replies: Are you sure you're reading the tea leaves right? In the conversions I've done, the PG car has a pin through from one side to the other. I have converted maybe 10 cars and I've never removed a column.

The PG pin has to go all the way through else what would hold both ends.

Craig,
I the conversions you have done, did you just swap out the pedals? The 67 - 69 bracket is definitely different than 65 and 66.

The 67-69 clutch pedal cross shaft has a snap ring holding it in on the left side of the support. It would be much easier to deal with it with the support out of the car.

Craig replies: Yes, I've always just swapped out the pedals. The brake pedal swings on a large diameter pin. (1/2"?). Take the pin out and substitute the clutch pedal rod, snap ring and bracket behind the radio.

The parts book lists one brake pedal support bracket for 65-6 regardless of transmission and another for 67-9 regardless of transmission.
