Hot Rods I need a brake pedal ~ UPDATE

Discussion in 'The Hokey Ass Message Board' started by HOTRODPRIMER, Apr 10, 2017.

  1. Anyone know of a vendor that will sell just the pedal for a hot rod,I am still working on the brakes and have determined the major problem is the sever modification that was made when it was shortened.

    Needs to be the type that's mounted under the car.

    All the vendors I am aware of want to sell me the entire assembly which I don't need, I have posted a photo of what I need,if all else fails I can purchase the entire assembly from Chassis Engineering,HRP

    cant you make another,thats what hot roddings about.buying stuff isnt the only way.i admire the aussies ans the swedes esp who despite being far away from the source of parts in us make the stuff themselves to a high standard.

    I cut one from a 3/8" plate of steel for a customer...Made a cardboard template and flame cut it (just as Jake used to do when he and P-Wood were designing the original Pete & Jakes hardware for the new 'P&J Hot Rod Repair' venture)
    The steel's cheap, plasma cutters are common as oxy-acet rigs, and the top tapped loop for brake pedal can be a 1/2" SAE nut welded on 'outrigger style'.
    You can get specs right where the template was, and not be confounded by 'adjustments' to someone else's 'fits-alls'.

    Just call Jason at Pete & Jakes he'll get you what ever you need, has for me several times. I bought one without the tube welded in so I could position it where I wanted it.

  9. This is not my first rodeo and I was fabricating parts log before the advent of 1-800 parts but time is of the essence and there is already too many irons in the fire,I have tried to make the existing pedal work but it's still not right. HRP

    A new pedal to me is so cheap its the way I'd go. Maybe I just work slow as it would cost me much more in my time then its worth.

  23. Dave,it's not that I fear the price but if it's close to the price of a complete pedal assembly I can buy that locally. HRP

  26. Talk about fast customer service,when I stopped by the shop today I was told UPS left something for me,I honestly didn't expect to get the new pedal this week.

    Thank you guys. HRP

  28. Dick,if they know anything about me it would have to be that I have a vivid imagination and can provide hours of unadulterated banter that can be amusing but lacking in meaningful content! HRP.

  29. Well guys I have installed the new brake pedal and although it helped a little the brakes still leave a lot to be desired.

    I have installed the adjustable proportional valve and I didn't see any difference/

    To refresh the memory disc front/drum rear non power brakes and I still have a extremely hard pedal and about 2" travel. HRP

    Well, if now you know the pedal ratio is right.....Next on the list ( because it would be easiest ) would be to pull the master cylinder and drop it one bore size. That is if you have had the wheels off and checked the brakes themselves. Did you ever check pressures, front and rear? It really sounds like the master is too big, ( interweb diagnostics ) at least that is where I would go next.
