I am wanting to install one of the spring tension stomp-on, stomp-off foot pedals on the front floor of my 26 touring to actuate an exhaust cutout. I also want to make it as easy as possible to pull up the floor for access to the grease cups at drive shaft and U-joint.
What have you done that worked out well.
This is the type pedal I am talking about...http://www.flickr.com/photos/bruckzone/4947277005/in/set-72157624743793037/
Here is a nifty method using a snap clamp to fit the cutout, easy to disconnect for floor board removal.
Thanks Dan, That is better than what I was comming up with.
Where on the floor are people putting it?
What spot has worked well?
What spot was a mistake?
I have two pedals like that in my coupe, one for the Aermore, and one for the cut-out. I used some fine welding rod for my linkage. To remove the floor, I have to roll under the car, pop the linkage off, and then I can remove the boards.
I couldn't think of a better way to do so. I generally clean my trans screen every time I grease, so I'm dirty enough to roll under the car anyway.
If some one has a better idea, I'd be all for it.
My advice as to where, is to make sure the pedal won't hit the trans when pressed. Don't ask how I figured that out.......
I put mine over on the passenger side of the trans. That way kids can operate the whistle while in the car. I also keep some Advil in the tool bag....
You should mount your cutout pedal to the non - removable section of floor board.
My Autowa bodied Ford has two pedals installed, not sure what was hooked to 'em, but I have some choices now
Oh and if you look close in front of the pedals there are the holes in the pattern for a Jamaica Ding-Dong bell too....lots of stuff was on this old Ford.
Royce, I like that idea but my 26 has no non removable section. Mine are not original. Was that the set up on the 26 touring?
