Yes , that is what we are using. This set up takes the 60-62 chevy truck master cylinder that has both brake and clutch outlets. If this is what you want, I will draw you up a print and send it to you. it doesnt look very hard to make. Dale

Honest just made a set for his truck. He copied an
origonal borrowed from Bass.

If he doesn't see this send him a PM, I bet he can measure
or take some pictures.

bracket
bolt
two cleavis'
two pedals

some older car mags, Hot Rod, Car Craft etc, will show them in Moon ads. etc.

If you use the Chevy truck m/cyl, don't forget to swap the cylinders innerds. The brake cylinder has the residual valve and your clutch will be slow to return if you don't swap the insides.

Paul, Thanks for posting that. I'm thinking anyone handy at fabrication could come up with something with that drawing. You could "scale" it to fit your application. Just remember to keep the pedal ratio correct, or you'll end up with a stiff pedal and little braking or lots of pedal travel (or the need to pump the pedal) to get the needed action.
BTW, slave cylinders of different configurations can be had at any of the circle track supply houses. Maybe someone here can post a source, or just call Speedway Motors.

Also your local NAPA store has a listing for the master cylinder and slave cyl. that was used in the GMC/chevy truck application.

No pics of the pedals, but here is the underhood view of my old Minor. I used the old Ford cylinders.

cool picture 60's style! that will help, I think all I probably need to do is get the m/c (or gasket if there is one, dont remember now if I saw one in the moon ad) for hole spacing and the rest should be pretty easy. I think I understand pedal ratio pretty well, the pushrods though - dont they need to be any specific length?

Default Re: ansen pedal question...

can anyone provide these dimensions?
back of mount to centerline of pivot bolt hole? (the upper dimension lines on my drawing)
center of brake pedal pad to clutch pedal pad (the lower dimension lines in my drawing)
how thick of plate should I use?
what to use for pushrods?
how thick material for the pedal arms?
anyone tell me how big and how far apart the big holes for the m/c are? how big and where to locate the bolt holes on the m/c?
On 60's drawing there are two holes at location B and location C, why?

cool topic. building your own pedal assembly from scratch would be nice because then you can get them to fit perfectly. A little bit more work than I can handle right now so I ended up buying a set.

You can probably get some good dimensions off of the wilwood website.

Anybody know how much one of those rebuilt Chevy master cylinders costs without a core? New Willwood clutch and brake master cylinders cost around fifty bucks each. The new slave cylinder is about fifty-five from www.daymotorsports.com

Wow! I'm more interested now. Somebody get me some dimensions. I could manufacture a few sets of these if there's an interest.

here are the dimentions of our pedals. Sorry, I could not get the dia. of the two large holes. You can use your master cylinder as a guide for these and also the holes that bolt it to the firewall. The master cylinder mounting bolts go through the firewall and the pedal bracket holding it all together.
