Model T Ford Forum: Forum 2010: Exhaust cutout actuator pedal install
Top of pagePrevious messageNext messageBottom of page Link to this message  By Erich Bruckner, Vancouver, WA on Saturday, December 11, 2010 - 01:58 am:

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.

Where on the floor are people putting it?
What spot has worked well?
What spot was a mistake?

Erich,
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?
