When I had my 1976 Ford Elite, I was looking into using a floor mounted clutch pedal assembly, that would have bolted to the floor pan, and used a hydraulic slave cylinder setup. I found my 1972 Q code 4 speed car, and ended up sticking it out instead of converting my car.
I don't know about the rest of you, but I had a hell of a time when I converted to power brakes...I used the dual diaphram brake booster off a 1973 Lincoln, and my GTS was one of the original manual front disc cars.
12" rotors, without power assist! WTF??
Anyways...I compared my 4 speed brake pedal and an automatic, and had to canabalize the pivot for the pedal off an automatic pedal, drill a hold in the same location on the 4 speed pedal, and weld it back in.
My car still has the original manual pivot, not that I am ever going to use it.
As fart as the brake pedal, you could just get a pedal off a f series, and worse case cut the pad off the truck and weld the pedal pad onto the torino brake lever.
Another thought, just gut the torino brake pedal setup, and use a floor mounted brake/clutch pedal setup.
What I'd like to know aside from the clutch setup, who has tried to convert to an aftermarket mastercylinder and booster setup?
Personally, if you are not going to stay 100% original, some times you have to move past original OEM and think outside the box, be a hot rodder, and adapt a setup to work. Metal can be cut, trim, worked and welded back together. I mean, hell, look at the 1970-1971 Chevelle clutch pedal kits...the Z bar looks awful freaking close.
I looked at NPD, and in the chevelle catalog, the complete Z bar linkage kit is like $114! the clutch pedal is $60 to add onto the setup. The bushings look identical. I dunno...just my 2 cents.
