clutch pedal removal for automatic conversion

My plan is to cut it off with an angle grinder... is there a better or more efficient or faster way?

it unbolts and pulls out, if you look at the pedal box you wll see what needs doing.

Post it up for trade for an auto pedal assembly instead of hacking it up. Someone needs one!

Re: clutch pedal removal for automatic conversion

It will be 1000% easier to remove the clutch pedal from the assembly if you remove the whole pedal assembly from the truck first. Otherwise, you will be working upside down, in the dark, with you back twisted 180 degrees and bent at a right angle. You won't be right for a week afterwards.

Re: clutch pedal removal for automatic conversion

Mine was taken right out, and later I installed a wider pad from Lokar that was a nice improvement...
