Model T Ford Forum: Forum 2017: Rear brake solution
Top of pagePrevious messageNext messageBottom of page Link to this message  By Reginald Urness on Monday, February 27, 2017 - 10:47 pm:

Today I had two friends help me install a bell crank shaft, purchased from Rich Boughman in CA. The shaft installation went well, but when I tried to reinstall the wooden floorboards, the floorboard closest to the car seat doesn't want to seat properly (the floorboard is raised about 1/2 inch above where it should be). It seems that the issue is that the primary rod rests too high. Has anyone encountered this problem before, and can you suggest a solution?

I had to notch the underside of the floorboard where the rod was making contact with the floorboard when I installed mine.

Reginald, the rod barely hit the bottom of my floor boards so I put a slight curve in it. Now everything clears perfectly and the brakes work great.
