brake and clutch pedal assemblies

im brainstorming once again on my 1930 olds 5 window coupe.
it has a Pontiac 400 and had a th350 behind it.
well, im real tired of the automatic, and I have been converting this thing to manual
I have a ST-10 installed with a scattersheild, hydraulic RAM throw out bearing and a centerforce clutch.


my issue is with the pedal assembly.


I want my pedals on the floor, and the masters inbetween the pedals and the seat


ive purchased the standard and reverse pedal assemblies from willwood.
neither of them will work, due to the configuration I want.


I have also purchased speedways pedal assembly that works the way I want, but im having an issue getting the pedals the way I need them to be.


has anyone done a manual conversion and have a set of pedal assemblies they prefer over everything else?

Do you have room to run a floor mounted pedal with the resivor behind the pedal? speedway or jegs sells a kit that is 6/1 with the pedal slave and master. You route break line and adjust it and go. Check your fork travel first of course. But you can use a remote resivior mounted anywhere above the floor.

http://smg.photobucket.com/user/sini..._2848.jpg.htmlI hope you have enough gear reduction to make this what you want. Manuals don't have torque converters to make up the difference.
Ansen used to make a really cool pedal box back in the day; they pop up on eBay occasionally

zero room. im also running a sprint car style steering.
with the steering box under the dash.
its been a challenge trying to get things to work,
I have a speedway combo pedal installed now,
but I have hacked and zapped the pedals to an approximate place.


I really do not want the masters on the outside of the firewall.
it would not look right IMO.

I ended up with Wilwood reverse-hung pedals on my Rambler. Had to run a shorty Ididit column straight out the firewall above the pedal box and use some bo-hinky u-joints on the steering shaft. Still not finished but it's mocked up and working.
