|Last weekend we worked on the mechanics of the footclutch pedal.
The parts we made will be hidden behind the left motormount plate,
but that is no reason not to make them look good! The idea here
is that a foot is much stronger than a hand and the clutchpedal
is quite long too, so first of all it needs an adjustable stop
to protect the master cylinder, and second it needs an adjustable
return spring to compensate for the weight of the pedal
| After making a quick and dirty steel
template to get the correct dimensions we started with a nice
stainless steel version. Then mostly welding, filing, sanding,
polishing I guess. A lot.
|Finally we found a nice lump of stainless to make the clutch
pedal itself from, and scribed a line where we will machine the
taper of the pedal.
