Whats the difference between pedals for a stick or an auto? I have a car that was originally a stick but I want to make it an auto. Can I just take off the clutch pedal without affecting the assembly? Thanks for the help guys.

As far as I know, its just that easy. Might be a good time to check the brake pedal return spring and the brake pedal bushings and bumper while you're under there. Probably a wise idea to replace the steering column seal/pad to cover up the open hole in the firewall too. Tim

Chris....Yes you can! Other than the pedal itself being physically larger, from the swing arm up its exactly the same part ...Also, if you want it to look original, you can weld or bolt a piece of slightly curved stock to the original pedal and cover it with an original power brake pedal pad...Do not center the new pedal on the arm...Align it with the old one one the right side...Eckler's has a kit ( p/n 20-160 link to http://www.classicchevy.com/find.asp? ), but its not that hard to do your own...(I did)... Good luck.... david

Thanks for all the help guys. Also Del Rey I think I will leave the pedal narrower. I have a prosthetic leg and the wider auto brake pedal in my 78 Corvette gets hung up on the foot. At least the smaller pedal will give me more room down there:D!!!
