ALL 3 OF MY FLOOR PEDALS ARE ALL ALIGNED ACROSS HOWEVER I HAVE NOTICED ON MOST T MODELS THE REVERSE PEDAL IS POSITIONED SLIGHTLY REARWARD. WHAT IS THE CORRECT POSITION OF THE PEDALS AND HOW DO YOU ADJUST THEM?

Doe's it inhibit the way you drive? if not leave it, may T's have an extinction on the reverse peddle for easier operation.

Extinction? Oh, I hope not! :-)

For pedal adjustment see this: http://www.mtfca.com/discus/messages/331880/359310.html?1367709603

and Pages 134-135 in the Ford manual.

The reverse pedal should come back further than the brake and clutch pedals. The reverse pedal should be about even with the clutch pedal when it is in the high gear position. There is no way to adjust have far back the pedals come. First make sure that the pedal is coming back as far as possible. It could be that the band spring is weak or broken, or that the cams are hanging up. If the pedal is back as far as it will go then the pedal is bent and will need to be bent back into position.

Could be your reverse pedal cam is worn out, or the pedal is bent forward. The pedal and cam are easy to remove from the hogshead without disassembly of the hogshead from the engine.

The clutch pedal comes almost back to the same place as the reverse pedal when the brake lever is forward. Like this:

Another great diagram, Royce, thank you!

I have one of Tom Strickling's reverse pedal extensions on my reverse pedal and love it, it helps keep my fat feet from getting tangled up in the pedals when I use reverse.
