    im working on turning my truck to a manual, i took out the stock brake pedal "frame" with the old brake pedal and put in the new "frame" with the clutch pedal and new brake pedal but the bar that goes from the master cylinder to the pedal has a hole on it too small for the new pedal's "pin" that goes through it, and the bar doesnt have enough meat on it to drill it out bigger. what would be the best solution for this problem? cut off the pin and find some kind of specialty bolt that will replace it? replace the bar with one that came on manuals? how does that bar come out anyways? would i need to remove the master cylinder to replace the bar? :doah:

    thanks in advance!

    I have to go look at my stuff later , so I can compare older to newer .

    Couldn't you grind the post a little smaller ?

    Or maybe drill another hole above ( less force ) or below ( more force ) ?

    If you weren't able to find the right bolt , maybe a smaller grade 8 bolt with a tubing sleeve cut and slid over bolt , and bolt on the pedal pushrod with a washer and nut .
