Ralph here again...sorry to bother you all on a Saturday. I am trying deperately to get this 68 convertible ready to go to the shop early next week. I am switching from 6 cyl 200 to the 289. I have purchased 2 gas pedal set ups. Apparently as best as I can tell one has a hang down piece to hook to the kick down lever on the trans. One doesn't.

1.My best guess is that the one with the kick down piece is for an auto matic, the other gas pedal without it is for a maunal trans?

2. When I removed the 6 cyl gas pedal set up it had only two holes for the bracket near where the rod goes through the firewall. The 8 cyl has a bracket with three holes. How do I know where to place the bracket on the firewall? Is there a piece between the firewall and the 3 holed bracket or does it mount right on the firewall?

Thanks guys... I am trying to do all this one handed

Ralph, the second part is indeed for an outo trnas kick down. The required bolt holes should already be in the fire wall. It should line up directly behind the drivers corner of the back of the intake manifold.

Struggling with finding the correct holes. The firewall doesn't seem to be flat enough to take the larger 3 hole bracket. Anyother help out there?

Went and checked my 68. There is a hole in the firewall for the pedal arm to go through. You should have a rubber plug with a hole in center for the arm to go through. If the arm is dead center in that hole {Which is about 1 1/4" in dia} the mount should be just to the left of the trans tunnel. There should be three dimples in the firewall to drill for for the mount. If not, center the arm in the hole and drill the holes for hex head sheet metal screws. On my car the bracket mount fits flush to the firewall. The bottom screw is right on the edge of bend for tunnel.
