1932 brake pedal position

Does anyone have some thoughts on installing a TCI 32 brake pedal. The bracket from TCI should be centered on the pedal pivot. That puts the pivot on the red line on the frame (see picture). As you can see this put the rear end of the bracket on the wrong side of my K brace.

Any thoughts on fixing this without tearing the brace out?

Thanks. Rocky

NONE ... this is my TCI pedal in my 32 chassis. Original 32 Frame with a few upgrades.



Except ... to make a bracket to pivot the pedal and then mount the master cylinder further back like the 33 - 34 Ford chassis shown above ( TCI ) .

Another way to do it would be to take to round divots out of the mounting plate so that the round stock could go around the frame mount bracket. The push rod from the eccentric of the pedal arm would split the distance between the two pieces of round stock. Weld a couple of caged nuts to the bracket so that you ca bolt the master cyl. on.

Or, cut the round stock off and grind smooth, attach the frame plate and re-weld the round stock on to the plate.

Or, Cut the mount plate along the red line, bolt half on before the pipe mount and bolt the other half on behind. The pivot brace would be re-bent and bolted to the top pipe. Add an extension on to the pedal arm rod that goes to the Master cyl.

There is a kit to do this ... which should work or just fab up your own

Or Pete and Jakes has a chassis very much like the one you show. Maybe their pedal stuff would work ...

OR

Or the best IMHO ...
