  • Champ part no. needed

    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.

        You ought to be able to find something suitable at a GOOD hardware store.

            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.
