Lettered pedal differences

Post by Don ellis » Thu May 07, 2020 12:16 pm

[image][/image]looking through my spare parts I noticed the difference in the style of the letter in this reverse pedal. I probably would have never thought about it I hadn’t had them lying next to each other. Does anyone know anything about the reason or is it just different manufacturers?

The one on the right is peculiar - is there a cartouche on either ? DB, TW ?

Are there any differences at the other end?

This is what you can buy today to weld on. It looks a little like the one on the right to me.
I would suspect molds changed back then as well as today.

When did I do that?

Well I see spellcheck got me again. One of these days I’ll learn to proofread.
I’m working at the fire station tonight, tomorrow I’ll check for makers marks.

One is marked DB, the other just a part number.

I have an interesting one on my '13 roadster. The pyramid pattern on the clutch pedal is coarser than the other two pedals. I assume it's from the time when Ford was changing over from Dodge Bros. to his own production methods?

Here is one from Canada. RHD reverse pedal on my '15.

Marked DS, believed to stand for Dominion Stamping in Windsor, Ontario which started to make parts for Canadian Fords about 193/14
