Brake Pedals & Shafts

Postby PVF1799 » Sat May 25, 2013 9:07 pm

:help:

I understand that the brake pedal, should fit snuggly on the shaft. What I don't understand is why the tolerance is so tight. After the shaft was pressed from the pedal, there was obvious signs the metal was in some places was actually ripped or scored.

If they are to be that tight - I don't understand - how you would push them in and align the bolt in the pedal with the shaft.

If they are to be tight but not the tight - what's the trick for taking a 0.001 - 0.002 off the inside of the pedal or the shaft itself?

Ken once things are cleaned up they should slide on and turn so you can alight the set screw. If you drove on the shaft it probably expanded it. Try grinding a little off the end.

Yeah, all I have done is clean it up REAL good on a wire wheel, clean out the pedal hole with sandpaper (or if you have a wire brush that fits), then use some penetrating oil (or antisieze might work) and reassembled. If you got it apart, you've already done the hard part.

As mentioned, if you had to pound on it to take it apart,you might want to grind off any mushrooming that might have occurred on the end of the shaft.

Just want to clarify - the brake pedal should go onto the brake shaft with some resistance and it should be able to rotate but it should not have to pressed in like it was pressed out?

Thanks for the posts, Ken

That's pretty much it Ken, clean it up enough to put back together, they are almost always a fight, it's just not you, I have pressed them, heated them and had a couple that would not come apart
