Model T Ford Forum: Forum 2014: Slow speed pedal shaft
Top of pagePrevious messageNext messageBottom of page Link to this message  By Mike Zahorik on Sunday, February 16, 2014 - 01:08 pm:

On a 1922 transmission, I have added a set of bands that have removable ears. I still have the '22 pedal shaft which is so long it will not allow the removable ear to come off. I see that I could get a new shorter shaft, but could I just cut my long shaft to size? How much of the shaft would need to be cut off?
Thanks
Mike

Millions of the long shafts were cut off. (I suspect), Yes you can you need 3/4 inch of shaft remaining to hold the band. You will need to change the adjuster also.

Here are pictures from Lang's website of the two different low speed shafts (the pictures are not the same scale). First, the long shaft for cars with the older, non-demountable bands, along with its corresponding short adjusting screw:

long_shaft

short_screw






Next, the short shaft for cars with the newer, demountable bands, along with its corresponding longer adjusting screw:

short_shaft

long_screw

The Ford service manual (paragraph 543) says that the older, long shaft can be sawed off "about 7/8 inch from the shoulder" to allow it to work with demountable bands.

oooohhhhh, I just looked in Lang's catalog and I think I see what is happening here. The 1922 adjusting screw has a hole in it and allows the shaft to enter it. A 26/27 adjusting screw has a pin on it and fits into the band ear. So it looks like the best solution here is to replace the shaft and the adjusting screw as Rick mentioned.
Thanks
Mike

Cut the shaft to 3/4" as Jack said, take the piece cut off and slip it into the adjusting screw and braze in place. Don't need to buy anything.

Mikey -- You've been spending too much time around Steve Jelf. :-)

I like how Steve thinks but this is what I have done for years on my own. See you in a couple of weeks.
