My low gear pedal shaft is against my Bendix cover when in the retracted position,could there be a mismatch of parts,different years or something like that. I put the kevlar bands through a set of rollers to make them as thin as possible.Thanks,Fritz
Mine is also very close, but since the low speed notch is on the inside of the hogshead, the clearance improves when the pedal is depressed.
Is yours just touching, or is it pressing so hard that the pedal can't retract all the way?
Do you mean the linkage? Hard to image the low pedal shaft hitting the Bendix cover, it's a way's above it.
There is a difference in early and later electric start low pedals. The early pedals will interfere if using with a starter/Bendix.
Photo or description of what is impinging on you T with the low pedal and Bendix cover would help.
It's probably the linkage more than the shaft,I guess I better study it more carefully,it seemed odd that I could not get the bendix cover off because I am having starter problems. Thanks a lot,Fritz
When I need to remove the Bendix cover (and it's screws, of course) I always depress the low pedal just to provide a bit more room.
Just cut that pedal off. You have two more you can use !
Careful, Burger. I think it was Joe Bell that was just telling about a fellow that cut the pan ears off to make engine removal easier. He said the look on the fellow's face when asked about how he was going to put it back was priceless.
You can easily bend the linkage arm on the early pedals to clear the bendix cover. A pair of big channel lock pliers is all you need.
