I have a 57 truck and the brake pedal hits the floor board and makes a loud noise when you take your foot off the brake. Is there suppose to be a stop or bumper that the pedal is suppose to hit so it does not hit the floor board on the way up? Thanks
Murphy, I am just asking here,is it the brake pedal? OR is it the Clutch Pedal?
as the clutch pedal does have a rubber Bumper that should be on this pedal
Only reason i ask is that my Son drove my 59 back and forth from school and said to
me that the pedal made Noise when he released it! i checked and the bumper was
I guess I should have mentioned that I installed the master cyl. adapter on my truck so I could use a dual master cylinder. I did not use the brakes before so I don't know if the pedal hit the floor board before or not but now it does. It looks like it needs to almost, so that the brake switch would make. The pedal is also real high. You have to really pick your leg up to use it. Thanks for any help and ideas.
Mine hit floorboard after installing new power brake booster. You will have to take it off and put it in a vise and bend it for clearance. And yes pedel does have to sit high to release brake light switch.
