WTB AC Brake Linkage Set

Post by dr1960 » Tue Feb 23, 2021 8:07 am

I have a set of AC brakes on order from Larry Sidmore. At this time, Rich is not producing the rod linkage sets. I would prefer to have the rod linkage rather than the cable setup, but I am looking for options until Rich is back producing his product. Can anyone steer me to a solution? 1915 Model T Roadster.

Thanks,

David

Local machine shop? But I suppose you would obviously need proper dimensions and lengths. Be nice to find someone with a similar setup that you could use to clone with.

Maybe it's an optical delusion, but the second pic almost looks like the turnbuckle and hook may be in the way of the floorboards?
Possibly even where it clamps onto the brake pedal? Think I like my Rockies better. Never had any reverse braking issues either like so many people say.
