Dear Welder Series… brake pedal/clutch for Model A?

Dear Welder Series…
Hey there,
I’m looking to order a pedal assembly but I’m having a hard time finding what I need.  I’m looking for a ready to weld brake pedal/master cylinder kit that includes the clutch pedal that works with a Model A frame.  I remember seeing it on your site some time ago but now I can’t find it.  If you can send me a link or give me some information it would be much appreciated!  Also a price & shipping to Sask would be great.

Thanks guys,
Nathan

Dear Nathan…
There are a couple of ways to do this with Welder Series kits, Nathan. Because the frame is narrow, it’s not easy to have room for the pedals, exhaust, and transmission (and linkage), so we use the kits that move the master a little farther from the frame rail than the Model ‘A’ kit.  Look at the options menu and the pictures. One is at http://www.welderseries.com/Brake-Pedal-Master-Cylinder-Bracket-32-Ford-p50683993.

Another way is by moving the master cylinder back from the pedals. Again, see the options and the pictures at http://www.welderseries.com/Booster-Bracket-&-Pedal-Mount-Under-Seat-Mount-p50666963

Lowdown Hotrods mounted the bracket behind a Welder Series transmission mount crossmember, as shown in the thumbnail picture at http://www.welderseries.com/Formed-Brake-Booster-Bracket-p50737621

Pricing is at each product in the store when you choose from the options menu. Freight is at http://www.welderseries.com/contact-us/. Shipping prices are as follows: 10% of the order, minimum $15, maximum $60. We use UPS or Canada Post for Canadian shipments.

Thanks for looking at Welder Series parts.

Dear Welder Series…
Thanks for the speedy reply on this!

I think the first link in your reply would be best suited for my needs. It says it’s for a 32 but I think I could make that work. Question though, how does a guy typically mount it to the frame rail? Is it just meant to be butt welded on? Just having trouble visualizing this. Maybe if you had a couple pictures that would help.

Dear Nathan…
The bracket would weld to a boxed section of frame rail.  It would be best to have the body on the frame so you can determine where the pedal will come through the angled toe-board.  If your firewall goes right down to the frame, a slot in the floor might be better.  We can substitute a straight pedal in this case.  http://www.welderseries.com/Brake-Pedal-Straight-p50755047. Sorry, I don’t seem to have an installed picture.

Brake pedal/ remote booster bracket – ’50 Chevy p/u

Salty (on the H.A.M.B.) is doing some major updates to his 1950 Chevy pickup truck, and documenting it all in this thread.  He called a little while ago and asked if we could come up with a solution to mount his booster under the floor, but his frame was very narrow.  Here’s a photo of what we came up with:

You can see how he brought the booster bracket up over the top of the frame rail until the booster was very close the the inside of the rail.  He did the same thing to the pedal bracket – the bent plate actually sandwiches the pedal against the inside of the frame rail… you can’t get much tighter than that!

’32 Update: Brake Pedal Pad Bracket (article 50)

I installed our brake pedal pad bracket and thought I’d show the progress…

Here’s the kit – stainless brackets, stainless hardware, and instructions.

One bracket goes on the outside of the pedal, and the other bracket sandwiches the pedal on the inside.  The masking tape is how far the pedal goes during full travel.  As you can see, I’ll have to trim the leading edge of the pedal.

The two holes in the pedal let you set up the bracket to a comfortable angle for your foot.

The slots in the two brackets line up for your pedal pad to mount to.

Another feature of the slots is to let the pedal pad move up and down, effectively modifying your pedal ratio.
