I switched my 68 from a 4-sp. to an auto. Is there any way to remove the clutch pedal and install a larger brake pedal? Or am I stuck with this pedal forever!!

The pedals remove easily. You need to get a regular automatic brake pedal from a junk yard out of a 68 to 72 chevelle. The pedal is hung on a pin. Take off the clip on one end of the pin and remove the pin and the pedal drop out (Save the pin and clip and the nylon bushings). The 4 speed pedals are a little different, the clutch pedal is attached to the pin, remove the clip on the brake pedal side and the whole clutch pedal slides towards the emergency brake and the brake pedal drops out, and you may have to loosen up the emergency brake pedal assembly to get the clutch pedal out.

Ok, thanks for the information. I had a hard time seeing under there so I was not sure how they were attached. Now I can just "feel" my way around a little too!! Scott

Scott,
If interested, I have the brake pedal you need that I would be willing to swap for the clutch pedal assembly. E-mail me if interested.

Do you have a hammer? A big one? A saw perhaps?

Easy:

1. Tie end of rope to pedal
2. Tie other end of rope to phone pole.
3. Give 'er all she's got


Hope this helps

Byfield..
That's the way we pull dents in good ol' texas.. Tie the front end to a tree, ease foreward a little bit, then yoink! Or how 'bout the time my rear brake calipers broke 'cause I didn't change the pads.. No problem, couple of hose crimps'll do the trick.. Great homemade repair.. Someone should write a book on this stuff.

Get new nylon bushings from your local GM dealer. They should be in stock.

I'd also recommend that you also get an extra retaining clip. That way, if you break the one you have, you don't have to bum a ride to get another.
