Anyone think this may work? Maybe the pedals will be to close?

That's the way thebrake pedal is on my Model A, look at the picture in post 29. The pedal are between the column and the driver.

Like I said previously, if you cut out the floor pan you can position the pedals wherever they need to go, then fill in the floor pan after you are happy with the ergonomics of the pedals.

As for dimensions, if you don't find anything I can put my '65 C10 up on the lift and post some photos / dimensions this weekend.

Sorry i tried to link up the pics of my set up but I can not find the cord that plugs into my computer. Send me your cell phone number and I can forward them out of my phone. I have to say to everyone out there that is so pro automatic transmissions. If I have to explain to you why a hot rod needs a clutch then I guess you just wont get it. If you want a daily cruiser go buy a lincoln town car. In my set up I was able to shrink my tunnel and have room for the column and all three pedals. I used 2" angle and fabricated a support system for the pedal assembly that is welded to the firewall and the top of the cowl support bar on the outer edge of the inside of the cowl. I did a complete pull up on it and it could easily hold me and you up. I then attached a piece of angle to the front side and mounted my column drop. The hole thing was quite simple and you can not even see any of the pedal assembly or the mount bars. My car does not have a/c but there is plenty of space to incorporate one. I put a/c in my 38 chevy and it was a pain in the ***. I think I have used it twice.

They would work but I think they are costly and it will be much easier to mount an entire unit. I have driven cars with through the floor pedals and I simply do not like the feel of the clutch going through the floor. It's not natural. Believe me you wont have any problem mounting a unit up inside the cowl.

I'm watching this thread to see what you come up with. I hate automatics. I plan on putting a Muncie in my 31 Plymouth. When I got it someone already had some pedals sitting in the pile of parts. I think they might have come from a Japanese car or truck. I have 2 sets of 3rd Gen F body brake and clutch pedals with the brackets. I have not tried to put them in yet. If I can get the F body pedals to work then I can use a GM steering column and a manual brake master cylinder.

Right now, I'm waiting fir a few helpful people to get me dimensions on a bell housing and Muncie M20..... Once I know they will fit, I think I'm going to try the individual floor mounted pedal assemblies. The vendor says I can return within 30 days.....I assume I will just need to run both hydraulic lines from back of floor mounted reservoirs thru firewall or the floor......I am still open to all and any suggestions!

I don't have bellhousing handy but I have the Muncie. They make a few different bellhousings so the dimensions will be different. The most compact bellhousing will be the one made for the small flywheel.

Do you have the height, length, and width of your Muncie? is it M20?
Thanks

A M20, M21 and M22 will all have the same dimensions. The length is 29 inches, the height is 9 inches and the width at the ears is 9.5 inches and the case is around 8.5 inches at the side cover.

A GM T10 and a Saginaw should also fit in the same space as a Muncie. The dimensions should be similar.
