    That's heartening, Alan. But for '54, they introduced a DIFFERENT aux. brake pedal arm than what was used in '53. (of course, I realize we're TALKING about a 53 here, but there's 54s and 55s "out there".
    I said "that's heartening" because I ultimately want to go to an auto trans in my (now 3-spdOD) 53 Commander. (I know guys, but I want my bride to able to drive it!)

    Thanks for chiming in, Alan. BTW - did that bellhousing do you any good???

    Yes Bob, Years ago when I bought a 53K with an auto I changed it over to a stick. All I did was remove that wide pad that went between the brake and clutch and put on 2 round ones p/n 0204-8. Then slaped on part nos. 0206-26,27,28,45,40,29,4,39,43,19,1,8.

    Good question! And one I'd like to know the answer to. I've assumed that the clutch arm could double as the second brake arm too, but the parts books show a special auxiliary arm to do the job. OF COURSE, the book assumes a car was auto to start with.
    My gut says that with the clutch linkage gone, and assuming the spacing's right, the clutch arm COULD double as the tag-along brake arm.

    53 4H-F3 Brake Pedal ??

    A guy called me today and ask a ?? that stumped me. And thats not hard. His 4H-F3 had 3 on the tree. He has changed it to automatic. Changed the column to the auto. Now all he has left to do is the brake pedal. The best I can remember is they used both arms with a wide pedal between the 2. His ? is how do they hook up on the frame. Can he use the cluch arm and brake arm. Or is he going to have change them.
