32 ford frame, K-Member location?

This is my first post on Hotrodders.
I'm building my 3rd 32 ford frame and bought a SoCal K-member which is somewhat different than the ones I used from Speedway. I was wondering if anyone has the dimension to locate the brake peddle pivot arm that is installed on the SoCal K-member.

Thanks TEH1955.

I read your post last night and since I have a TCI chassis not SoCal I didn't answer. Obvious question but have you called SoCal to see if they have a schematic on their chassis or some other sort of plans?? If you have the body on the chassis you should be able to get a pretty good idea where it should go....not a lot of options on these old cars.

Fast forward a few......I just googled "SoCal 32 Ford K member" and it has their website showing the K member with what looks like the brake pedal pivot boss welded into the tube. (?????)

32 Ford Frame

I do appreciate your help. The other two frames I built were perimeter frames and I did not install the brake peddle pivot boss. I also fabricated the center cross member myself. The Socal K-member was pre-fabbed and thought it would save some time installing.
You are right the brake peddle boss is welded into the K-member, and that's the problem. I just want to locate it (front to back) in the correct place. I was going to call Socal tomorrow to ask the question. I just ran into the problem late Friday and it was too late to call. I thought I could get an answer over the weekend.
Again, Thanks for your help.

You should be able to figure it out ... because the pivot position depends on where your floor/toe board is

Mine is a home built crossmember ... or I would measure it for you.
