duelmaster and a mec clutch pedal design of my own

I need a new set up for my old rod,updating to duelmaster and a manule clutch.
My old was a swing set up I didn't like all that well and now it's junk anyway,so putting under floor pedals,I designed this set up and maybe of help to others.
Each pedal has it's own axle,but the clutch axle tube runs over to the inside with a arm at the inside end to pull by ajustible rod on bellhousing arm from back[hole drilled in arm]

My Studebaker has a system that uses a single pivot.
The pivot axle is hollow. Brake pedal rotates on outer surface and clutch pedal pivot axle runs thru hollow inner. To another extension shaft that connects to belhousing/clutch linkage. Works slick.. Too bad I'm only using the brade pedal on this build..

There a bit alike as you said.,but I'm using the clutch pivot as a Z-bar,so thats why I'm doing it with two pivots.

Looks nice! But...have you mocked up a seat and tried sitting in it? The pedals vs shifter location looks pretty uncomfortable for anyone over 4 ft tall. Not trying to bust your chops, but it would be awkward to find out too late that it's all but impossible to drive...

This rod is a rebuild ,I put this together back in 1959 going into highschool,so has been together before, yes it all works much better then most. Photos canbe a bit deciving to the eye. Never the less thanks for mentwell input. May indeed help some one think about there set.
I'm 6ft. both then and now.
About 6 months ago,I did check to see my old parts fit tobe sure all was going to fit like it did before I took the girl apart in 1965,Got to building a lot of racecar between 65 and a few years ago when I started this clean up/rebuild/update with stuff like the duelmaster ect.

That is soooo cool to be rebuilding your own 55 year old project car! Keep us posted on how it goes. Obviously, you're a bit older than me (and I'm 60). I find I can't do near as much as I could, even a few years ago, so hats off to you...

This shot is from about 1964 when i had the Ford Y-block out again and doing some new high gloss black paint over the top of my older high gloss dark purple,I likeed the black better and will be doing it again on this rebuild. I took my rollbar out and junked it shortly after this photo,desided it was to hard banging my head on it if I forgot to lean forword on fast take offs. The little fenders were held on with wingnuts on brackets to the backing plates,I hated them,but now and then there would a hardass cop that just had to see fenders,so I'd stick them on,as soon as he didn't have our naberhood beat anymore off they came.
The sports car behind my rod,was my Dad's SCCA H-mod he built in 1957 Crosely powered,with a Jabo body and home made frame. For you kean eye guys.
