    on the clutch pedal could someone measure the distance from the clutch pedal pivot point, up on top, to where the master cylinder hyd clutch rod comes in contact with pedal mechanism. and while at it the length from the pivot point to the foot peg.

    I'll try and draw a pic of the pedal mechanism.

    O pivot point under steering column

    |
    o-------- ROD (to hyd clutch master cylinder)
    |
    |
    # foot peg (to your foot)

    thanks in advance,
    ARQ.

    use the parts you have to figure out appropriate mounting point for your custom application.

    length of stroke in the master is a constant that you can easily measure.
    now measure the amount of travel the rod will see at different points on your pedal.
    pick one that is slightly less then master stroke.
    I will see if I can get accurate measurement with it installed...

    ~15.5" effective length
    ~2.5" pivot distance
    ~1.5 - 1.75" stroke length

    pivot is set back from pedal on tab

    exaclty what i was looking for, thanks. I do know about the stroke on the clutch master cyl, just wanted to get an idea of how hard the pedal will be.
    the closer to the pivot point the softer it will be but will require more pedal travel.
    first time i mounted it i placed it at the same level(length) as the pedal. big mistake, but i had to only depress the pedal like 1.5".
