Reverse in my T is not at all easy to engage. My feet re large, so I added the pedal extension. But I still I have push the pedal past and between the other two. I have seen T's go easily into reverse, but I have to work at it harder than I think I should. Should the reverse pedal be adjusted to engage higher off the floorboards than the others?
I also added the reverse pedal extension, it helps a lot.
I also have the rubber pads on all my pedals. I suppose you could put a pad on just the reverse pedal to add a small amount of extra height.
My reverse band is adjusted so that reverse is fully engaged before the pedal drops even with the other two pedals.
Hope this helps.
Mike, I always adjust the reverse band to where the pedal is tight when even with the other 2 pedals. Worn cams will affect this operation too. Also us big feet guys have to use the side of our foot for reverse sometimes.
With my size 14EEEEs I have had a lot of trouble with this issue. First, I wear my narrowest shoes when driving the T.
Second I adjust the pedal up tight. Once it is adjusted and the cover is screwed back on the trans, I start the motor and push the reverse pedal with my HAND and listen with my EARS. I can hear when the band contracts and when it is free. This is a check to make sure it is not too tight.
Even then I still have to press the pedal with the side of the foot. Reversing in low Ruckstell is a help getting full band engagement.
Just the info I needed. Thanks, Guys!
I bent my go pedal a little to the left. The extra space helps my big feet to have room to push reverse.
