Model T Ford Forum: Forum 2005: Foot Pedal Adjustment to fit floor board slots
Top of pagePrevious messageNext messageBottom of page Link to this message  By Ralph L. Teaford on Saturday, February 23, 2008 - 04:03 pm:

My left foot pedal is leaning too far to the Left,

to fit into the floor board slots.

To straighten it, can I bend it cold or do I need to heat it?

Thank you for your help.

Ralph, A 27 in the Forties but a 24 now

I just did mine a few minutes ago and I put a little heat to make it easier.
I didn't heat them red hot. Just enough to bend.

I've done it cold, with a pipe wench.

Iíve done it cold with concrete when I accidently let the engine roll off the cart. Good news it was a low cart and I slowed the fall down some.

I just got finished adjusting the low pedal on my 1912 using a pair of pipe wrenches. No heat necessary, they bend very easily.
