What did I do ?

Postby Arizona Mike » Thu Mar 03, 2005 9:32 am

Yesterday morning I was out in the garage and decided to straighten the clutch pedal on my '59. It had been bent down about 20 degrees on the horizontal part of the pedal since I got it, and had been bugging me for awhile...just looked bad. Also I had a piece of steel pipe that fit over the end so it was "straightening time".

A couple of pulls and tugs and heh..it looked perfect again. This is the good part.

The bad part is, last night about an hour before sundown, I fired him up to cut a little grass...NO CLUTCH :o :( :o :( :o

Anyone know why bending the clutch pedal would make the clutch go away :roll: :roll:

Thanks

Mike

Was the pedal against the floor board when you were bending it? If not something on the linkage slipped.

As Jim said, more than likely the adjustment on the pedal slipped, if not, pedal may have slipped on shaft.
If you are not part of the solution,
you are part of the problem!!!

Possibly the nut came loose or broke?

Mike,

Your '59 has an adjustment at the base of the pedal that may have slipped. Does your pedal free play seem different? It should be about 1".

I've been successfully bending the pedals for a couple reasons. I hate to see them misaligned... bending them so that all three form a nice straight line makes them easier on my eyes. The other reason is to increase the distance from the torque tube so there's more room for the battery cable. My tool of choice is a 24" pipe wrench used sideways. Actually, it's a pretty easy job if you don't mind messing up the paint.

That is what I was wondering about with the arm.

Yeah.... mow WHAT??!! It is 20f here, ran out of propane for the garage furnace, and the snow has been piled up like I have not seen here in years,if ever. Of course the snowblower if broken AGAIN. Even got the car stuck in the driveway.
But on a positive note, the car is not blocking bigfoot (4x4 truck), I have some full 20# tanks and the pedal shown in the picture I posted earlier now has a nice coat of primer.

Guess I am not going snowmobiling in Arizona this winter!
