Gas Pedal Assembly Help!!!!!

Hi everyone im currently building a 67 chevelle and have to come to the more detailed parts of the car. I have found that my gas pedal assembly is screwed up for the gas pedal is only half and inch from the floor bored. Since its an earlier model ive been having trouble finding a replacement through my current repro parts dealer and was curious if anyone knew of anything that would be compatible. I have heard that an early year camaro or GTO assembly should be able to fit and take its place.....any thoughts or info that you could share would be excellent.

If the linkage from the pedal to the carb is all mechanical (not a cable) then most likely one of the linkage pieces is bent somewhere. Most likely spot is where there's a factory bend and sometime in the past its been in a bind and gotten over-bent.

People who are impatient when pulling engines and such are famous for mangling up parts like these. Hot dogging a car with one or more broken motor mounts is real tough on throttle linkages too.

Generally it isn't that hard to fix them. Takes a bit of studying how everthing's made, more than anything else. For example, if you see a place that's bent past 90 degrees, you can pretty well bet it wasn't made that way. Also, if there's a bellcrank assembly anywhere in the linkage, and it appears to have some adjustability via loosening a clamp bolt, the adjustment may have slipped over time. That one's an easy fix most times unless some genius has overtightened it in the past and smashed the clamp section to the point where it can't be tightened reliably.
