Pedal ratio

I need to build a pedal and master cylinder bracket for a street rod..we are using a manual master cylinder and need to get some Idea on the pedal ratio so we can draw up a plan for this thing..the bracket will incorporate the pedal and mastercylinder mount and the whole works will then be bolted to the chassis in the appropriate spot..

Thanks
Sam

Most factory manual brakes had a 6:1 pedal ratio...

I usually make my brackets and pedals so that the ratio can be changed if needed. Manual discs take a bit more ratio, at least 6 :1, maybe more.

Later, mikey
