Manual brakes

Guys help me out. I changed to a manual brake set-up. Without a great deal of stripping the dash down I can't get to my power brake pedal to modify it to go to manual brakes. I know I should drill a hole 1" above my power brake pedal hole to get better leverage for the manual set-up. Now if I keep the pedal like my power pedal what are the draw backs. Hard pedal? Or what??Thanks for the info in advance.

Thom

What kind of car? GM pedals are easy to remove, just pull the clip and remove the main pin, then you can work on it on the bench instead of in the car.
