Title: Brake peddal, and rod
Post by: pato08 on 01.03. 2014 00:02

Hi All, a couple of quick questions.
1/ Below is a picture of two brake peddles I have, which would be more accurate for a 1957 Plunger ?, and why does one have a lug on the side.
2/ Of the peddle, brake rod spacer and adjuster nut, what is painted, chromed, polished ?

Thanks in advance
Pato

 Hiya Pato,
             One with lug for adjuster would most likely be the one.
 Books I have for each has same P# for both. Do either have numbers on them...??

 I had trouble making mine clear the (not very well made) engine pipe- had to add a chicane.. *conf*- problem was I think incorrect top radius on the pipe, but that's a story for elsewhere...

 Can't help with paint/chrome, could be down to personal choice.

 cheers

G'day Pato.
duTch is on the money. The lug is for an adjuster bolt that works on the bottom of the footpeg to vary the height of the pedal. A friend has a "53 plunger with that one, my "51 has the other. Painted. Rod, spacer & nut chromed.
Cheers
Don't worry duTch, my pedal rubs the pipe too.

Hey Dutch, both have 67-7026 cast on them. I first thought the lug was for return spring. but adjuster makes more sense  *beer*.

Thanks Musky, parts added to paint shelf, I'll let you know when engine is getting closer to assembly point, if you are available  *respect* .

.... and when it comes to the spring..........hoo boy...no way can I get it on, it may be for a single. The new one I bought has reasonable diameter/clearance on the lug, 3,1/4 full turns, but the ones in the books appear to have 3 only, but I think it should have maybe 2,1/2 or 3,1/2 turns
