Technical 1940 Ford pedals vs 1939 Ford pedals

Discussion in 'The Hokey Ass Message Board' started by 1oldtimer, Oct 14, 2021.

  1. I'm still looking/researching but has anyone made or mated a 40's pedal assembly to a '39 pedal assembly?. I want to keep the stock pedals for location but I want to have the clutch arm on the inside (next to the trans like the '39 pedals).

    Thinking out loud.......can I use the '39 pedal mount, is the brake pedal end thick enough to handle the large bushing (after being bored out), is the '39 shaft long enough for the '40/'41 pedals.

    The Powerglide in the '41 p/u is still leaking on the sloped driveway (I think the converter is draining as it sits). I want to put in a 3 speed and I need to put a clutch pedal back on and make it work to a later trans.


    SBC to a 3.03 Ford with a T150 top shift conversion and stock pedals is the plan.

    Thanks for any info.
     
  2. BTW does anyone have a picture of the stock pedal assembly for a 1941 Ford pickup and/or pedal part numbers.

  4. If you install a complete 39 unit nothing inside the cab will be changed. Much easer than trying to graph anything together. Go to Drake and buy a new unit.

    What they said makes sense and worked for me. Here is what a 1940 set looks like. I believe 1941 very similar.

  6. It's going to be easier to modify off the truck where I'm going to be working on it. I might try to find some '40/'41 pedals and some '39 pedals and see where I'm at. The curves are different of each pedal and it comfortable where they're at now.
