    You take off the master cylinder.brake booster , and then the whole shebang comes out from under the dash . The barkebooster/master cylinder studs are what holds it to the firewall ...... they are an assembly , and easiest to work as one .

    Of course disconnect any wiring , and move a few things out of the way .

    Sounds like you just have the pedals,but you also need to change the part the pedal attaches to

    yeah, and having done just that I can tell you that dropping the steering column completely was the only way I could get the pedal hanger in and out. After struggling with it for a while I finally removed the drivers seat, disconnected the steering column and dropped it flat on the floor to get it out of the way. Guage cluster and all the other bits came out too...not an enjoyable job!!

    thanks allot guys, so i have to take out the brake booster and the pedal braket will come out, theres nothing on the inside of the truck? then i just take the other stuff out to put it back in? my braket does'nt look anything like the one in that picture, probably cuz its not hydrolic i guess? its only a through bolt that holds the two pedals, the one thats in there now just isnt wide enuff i could just take it out and make it wider right? sorry if im confuseing, if i need to i can take some pictures this weekend but i think we are all on the same page here, the truck is a half hour away though so i cant take the pics now sorry. anyway thanks again everybody :waytogo:

    Ahh , you don't have the whole pedal assembly then . In that case you have to make it work . Look in the tech articles on the main ck5 home page , not forum page , for the manual swap article . He did it that way
