Can anyone help with a part no. for the rubber stops for the clutch and brake pedals. I can't find them in the parts catalogue. They slip over adjustment screws. Mine crumbled. Thanks, Robert.

Where are these "stops" you speak of? Is this an 8E or earlier?

It's a 64 8E. These are little bumpers that cap metal adjustment screws on the pedal arms. They deaden the sound when the pedals return to the at rest position.

I happened to be in a great local hardware store this morning. The rubber caps I had in mind did not avail themselves to me. Truth is tho, I didn't spend a whole lot of time lookin'. One thing I did discover (that might suffice and maybe even have other Stude uses) was something called a "Well Nut". They're made of rubber and come with a threaded brass nut molded into one end (the narrow end). Here's a link to a supplier's page on Well Nuts. It shows them having a range of thread sizes from 6-32 to 3/8X16. The ones in the hardware store ranged from a buck & change to two bucks & change.

Of course, Rich gave you a number and that's certainly best. I just thought that since I discovered these well nuts, I'd share them for other such applications. Heck, they might even be superior to the stock bumpers.:)

Thanks guys. I will try the real parts. I did get some rubber sleeves at Lowes but they're paper thin. There's nothing like 45 year old rubber. :)
