Thread: Pedal Box Question/ clutch arm

    Pedal Box Question/ clutch arm

    I'm restoring my 69 E pedal cluster, and in the process of researching photos I noticed a difference between most of all the photos of pedal boxes, and mine. The spring end of the clutch shaft on most boxes appears to have an offset lever arm, and mine has a straight arm without offset. I believe this to be the original pedal cluster to the car. Pet shows different part numbers for different years, but the images in Pet all seem to show the offset lever arm. Was the 69 it's own unique clutch arm? I did find a few photos of a straight arm like mine, but no definitive reason or year was listed. Attached are two photos, one of my 69 clutch arm lever, and one of a typical clutch arm lever. Any information you could give would be helpful...Thanks Steve

    Mine has a straight arm also, must be a 69 thing. I always thought that because mine is a RHD explained the difference.

    Thanks for the replies gents, good to know that it's not incorrect. Perhaps it has to do with the push type clutch or pull type clutch?

    I know this in kind of old but I just ran into the same thing.
    I am rebuilding a cluster from a 914.
    Had to cut off the old clutch shaft.
    I have a clutch shaft that is straight.
    Same length just needs the spacer shown.
    Doesn't seem like it cause any problems if I use it.

    Is it a one year only thing?
    Is it just for a 911?

    Would like to know so when it comes time to sell, I can advertise it correctly.

    Thanks, Dean
