Firewall mount Pedal

I am looking for a firewall mount brake pedal for my 32 ford .it needs to just mount to the firewal and not the upper dash, this is for non power and needs to be a 6.1 ratio. has anyone seen something like this? all the brake sites i go to dont seem to have it. Is this something I am going to have to make? Thanks for any help

I made mine from an S-10 brake mounting bracket and pedal and adapted a manual cylinder to it..I did beef the firewall a bit in the mounting area..used some 10 gauge steel for that..Looking around and being creative can be good..

For a little over 200 dollars ... you can buy a under the floor mount pedal setup from TCI ...

I have found that a firewall mount on a 32 Ford ... makes working on the engine difficult ... and it does not LOOK as good either IMHO.

I made a brake pedal, firewall mount bracket and incorporated it all into a mount for a stub column. This is on a 33 pickup, very similar to a 32. You will need to reinforce your firewall, no matter which type pedal you use.



I made it with a 5:1 or 6:1 ratio, lowering the pedal down to the lower hole in the bracket and drilling a hole about 3/4" higher in the pedal makes it from a 5:1 into a 6:1, which worked out well with a manual master cylinder and disc brakes.

Later, mikey

It looks like Kugel or ECI may have what you are looking for. Kugel has both the through-firewall mount and 90* and 180* under dash mounts for the M/C. It's hard to tell from the photos, but it appears that the ECI unit mounts between the dash and the firewall....

Hope this helps,
