I have been looking on Ebay for a manual type brake pedal, can anyone on here that has a manual brake 68/69 Torino measure the distance from the pedal mounting pivot to the stud that pushes the plunger on the master cylinder.

This is what was quoted by a seller on Ebay:


"I have had assemblies out of both manual and power brake cars though and could not find any differences between the assemblies, I believe one fits all, unlike Mustangs and Cougars which the two assemblies are different".

It was stated there was a difference from a Mustang man in a earlier post.

In some ways I hope there is no difference.
I'm thinking 2" from the pivot to the stud is the magic number

Mine is a 4 speed car if that also makes a difference.

Thanx, for all the help I am receiving already!

unlike the mustangs which are different between manual and power pedals, Torinos and Fairlanes are the same.

I swapped from power to manual, then swapped from auto to manual trans and there was no difference between the pedals as far as I could tell.

Don't worry about it.

the pedal hanger is the same. the part the master cylinder rod hooks to is in the same place on manual & auto brake pedal. since there is only one pedal hanger i am of the conclusion that the same pedal is use for manual and power brakes.
