Does anyone know if pedals from an older hogshead, say 1920 will fit a newer (26/27) hogshead?

Yes. But be careful of the low pedal from the non-starter era. It will interfere with the Bendix cover.

Also if you are using the removable ear band off the 26/7 high/low, then the inside shaft will need to be cut shorter on the early pedal.

Doug

What Erik's talking about is the little bell-crank under the pedal that releases the high speed coil spring to the pressure plate...they are straight on early cars (will interfere with bendix cover, whereas the later starter cars have an offset bell-crank (to the inboard) to clear the bendix cover). This is all the linkage that makes removing the 3 o'clock screw so irritating on the bendix cover.

I recently tried to fit Low and Reverse detachable bands in a
early transmission and boy oh boy what a drama. Ended up refitting the original non detachable ones

I found that the ears were different heights (shorter on the later ones) plus the opening was narrower and wouldn't slide over the shaft that applies them.

The notion of changing bands without removing the pigshead
is a non event for me

Doug,I just put a1927 engine& trans in my 1914 .I replaced the pedals with the earlier small pedals with no problems,because I didn't like the 1927 pedals. Low pedal was to close to emergency brake. Also had to change the timing cover because of the fan.
