Today I went down to start the power brake conversion and really looked at how to remove the pedals and support.
Damn, there did not seem to be any easy method of getting ou the pedal support.
Can the power pedal replacement be done with the support in the car?
Is there a website that shows how, or should I get the ford service manual?

On a 67 you do not need to remove it (I think 69 is the same). It can all be done in the car..................with patience & common sense.
Hopefully a 69 owner will pick up your question

Thanks for the reply Pierre.
So you pull out the shaft, put the new pedal in and replace the clutch pedal and shaft?
Sadly I am not as patient as I need to be.

I have done this job, 2 times now. For conversions from automatic trannies to manuals. I would not suggest trying to do this with the support in the car. You will save yourself much time, effort and loss of blood by taking the dash apart, the guage pod out and giving yourself as much room as you can to work with to remove the support to make your alterations. While it is possible to do this in car, it is very difficult, time consuming and frustating. Planning on removing it and just accpeting that you are going to do it that way will save you time in the long run, as well as knuckle flesh and blood cells.

Good luck to ya.
