I ended up shortening the rod about 5/8"., and readjusted the switch. Works great now, no more brake drag, and pedal is lower. It's now where I can get my foot on it without lifting my heel, like dadsbee said. Made sure I got a really good weld on it after cutting it off.
Post #7--M/C is a Right Stuff.. And Yep, I read about the different pedal arms during my researching this deal. That's why I asked "Do I need another pedal arm?"., Since mine was power brake but now not. I think there is a difference also in where the brake pedal is as far as height on 4spd and...
The low side could be from the frame rail on that side being bent up a tad. You may try putting a small level on top of the front frame rails. Put it on each side aimed front to back, then compare. I've seen front frame rails bent up on one side from hitting curbs, etc..... Or could one of the...
I may copy your idea there. Where did you get that spring? and about how long is it? I think I remember seeing that pic before. Back a couple of years ago when I started piecing my brake pedal & m/c setup together. Funny I've been driving this car with the brakes dragging for a while, and...
My car was missing a lot of stuff when I got it like the old m/c. The one I bought is a Right Stuff and they make an adjustable rod which only adjusts out to 6in. So I'll either order one of those or cut this one off 1in or so.
After I got under there and looked I can see where I bent the brake signal switch brkt so it would work with the push rod I got somewhere, probably ordered the wrong one. Just guessing it appears to be about 1 in too long. Anyone know how long it should be?
I noticed that my 68 charger's front disc conversion brakes are dragging and maybe the rears are also. Without any pressure on it, the weight of the pedal arm is applying a tad of brakes. I had the car jacked up and had trouble spinning the front wheels. Then pulled the pedal up a bit with a...
I've heard that if the fitting plate where the hoses go into the gearbox is not lined up right it can cause an imbalance in fluid pressure to each side of the unit and cause it to favor one side over the other.. Not sure if that's your problem or not but thought I'd throw it out there.
My 68 Charger came with power drum brakes but I have converted the front to disk. I would like to do away with the power brake booster stuff and just go with a simple stock type non-power master cylinder. Will this work ok? A bud said if you have disks you have to have power.
