Helping a friend with his 22 touring and had to replace the low speed pedal shaft as it had been cut at some point in time. Got the old one out finally as the pin did not want to come out to slide the shaft out. Replaced the entire pedal assemble with a very good one. Put it back together and now the linkage is preventing us from putting the bendix cover on. Any ideas what we did wrong?
Maybe flipping the L shaped part of the link over so that it is towards the hogshead and the cotter pin is near the bendix cover will help. The L shaped part is supposed to be connected to the pedal and the clevis is supposed to be connected to the clutch shaft.
Tried that. It appears that the new pedal and shafts linkage is at a different angle than the old one. Aren't all pedals the same? I know that the early ones had letters on them and the 26-27 were wide. This one is just a plane old smooth small pedal clutch pedal.
Maybe the little lever on the end of the pedal where the linkage connects is bent to the side?
Here are some pictures of mine. The first picture is incorrect. The second one is correct.
The clevis goes toward the clutch lever and the l shape goes toward the bendix cover with the cotter pin toward the hogs head. This position gives you the most straight leverage for the link. It will also clear the Rocky Mountain brake linkage on the brake pedal. As you push the low pedal down it will move in to the transmission and farther away from the bendix cover.
Is this the Glenn Edwards of Tenn?
You have a pedal from a pre-19. It has a straight arm, not curved to clear the Bendix cover. I fixed mine by having a late, curved arm welded onto the lettered pedal I wanted to use.
Non starter pedals are not the same!
I was going to type the same thing. More then likely you have a non starter pedal. Compare the two down at the linkage.
I've bent non-starter pedals to clear.
Yes Ricks I am in Tennessee. I didn't know that there was a non starter pedal. I thought they were the same except for letters until 26. Learn something new every day. Now to take off that hogs head again and find another one with the correct angle. Thanks to all.
Really? Why not just bend it?
Well we got the thing heated up and bent. Works like a charm. Thanks for a very obvious solution. Learned something about these cars. Did not know that there was a change in pedal linkage for 1919 cars with starters. Looked at year changes in Bruce's encyclopedia and didn't find it. Doesn't mean it isn't there, just I didn't find it. Many thanks to the good folks who make this forum possible!
