I've searched the forum but can't find any information/pictures about installing Rocky Mountain Brakes on a RHD 1917 Roadster. Anyone have any experience? Will the modified pedal sold with the new Rocky Mountain Brakes work on a RHD?
I'm asking the same question in a separate thread about AC Brakes to see which would be easier to install.
The Rocky Mtn brake pedal will not work with RHD.
The cross shaft seems to be reversible, best call Bud Willams in Temecula, he would know for sure.
Rocky Mountain originally had a clamp for the brake pedal, which will work on a RHD. The problem is, the reproduction brakes!
The cross shaft is not reversible. The lever on it to the brake pedal has to be attached to the right hand side, in other words cut it off the left and weld it on the right. If it's reversed it ends up on the back of the hand brake shaft instead of the front of it so when you apply the brake the hand brake shaft is in the way.
As per instructions a small lever also has to be welded onto the brake pedal. You will need to set up all the pieces of the puzzle and make sure everything clears each other as with RHD there is problems which also include the presence of the exhaust pipe as well as the clutch mechanism.
I am doing a right hand drive with rocky's also. This is what I am going to be using with a few modifications;
It swings under the cross shaft and works independently of the stock parking brakes. It mounts hanging on the back of the cross shaft is made out of 3/4 inch round stock.
