Talking Brake pedal bracket question.

Is there a differance between a auto brake pedal bracket, and a manual bracket, other then 1 has a clutch pedal on it? Thanks

So I can use the manual brake pedal bracket, and just remove the clutch pedal and move the brake pedal over?

Re: Brake pedal bracket question.

I think you remove the clutch pedal, once you remove the end with the linkage rod on it, you can knock the clutch assembly out thru the bracket.
and then you have an auto setup. No moving of the brake pedal that I'm aware of.

I have an auto setup, and a 3 on the tree setup and the brackets/brake pedal portion are identical.

'71cadc10 is correct, you just remove the clutch pedal and shaft, the brake pedal stays where it's at. It can be hard to get to with the assembly in the truck though.

Re: Brake pedal bracket question.

So to keep the theme.. I have read that you can convert a 4 wheel equipped drum brake truck to disc useing stock parts, (in front). Is this true? Also is it possible to do the same in the rear? And is this suggested, or is it worth just putting after market brakes? And if the aftermarket is the way to go, what size rotors? Plan to run a 17" wheel.I plan to use 2.5" lowering spindles, and 4" lowering rear springs. Thanks for the opinions.

Re: Brake pedal bracket question.

If you are staying 6 lug, you can use 71-2 front rotors from a 4wd. They will work on the rear. I have two of them set up like that. i just made a mount for my caliper and a spacer. Both of mine are 4x4 trucks, that are 72's, so they were front disc already, I have not converted a front 6 hole with the rotor, but I cant see why it wouldnt work. I dont have an e brake set up on my caliper, love to figure that out reasonably. I have pics if it would help you picture it.
