Pedal Assembly for 4 Speed Crash Box Tranny

HI All,
I have a 1946 1/2T with a 4 Speed Crash Box installed. I am looking for a proper set of pedals to mount to the 4 speed as the one currently installed (I am told) are used with a 3 speed and do not line up with the bell housing mounting holes. I was told I could cut the current pedal assembly down to fit, however I think I would rather keep the 3-speed assembly intact in case I decide to install a 3-speed in the future.

Thanks

Patrick

I've had the 3 speed, 4 speed, Saginaw 4 speed and now a T-5 and still using stock pedal assembly that bolts to bell housing.

Thanks for the response. I am told the pedal assembly is different for the 3 speed vs the 4 speed. My issue is the pedals do not line up with the boltholes in the bell housing. They are too far to the left by about 1-1.5".

Patrick, if you can post a photo of the bellhousing and pedals maybe I can help figure this out.

Im thinking this trans is from a large truck? Never ran across this issue in the past, master cyl bracket and pedals look right for half ton. Maybe some one could measure trans width to compare with what you have. Also there is a good Chevy truck shop in New York, Adlers I believe, I'll look up their info and get back to you.

Thanks for the contact info! I was told this is the 4 Speed, Non-Syncro Crashbox transmission and that it most likely came out of a 1.5 or 2 ton truck. One member who was helping me suggested I look for the right pedal assy rather than cutting mine down to fit. Another suggested making a bracket to take up the slack. I good with buying the right assy and mbolting it in.

I believe you have the correct pedal assy, Big truck version is totally different. I'll send you a pic of the one I have, not for half ton. I wouldn't cut your original either.

Ok, believe this photo shows the only other pedal assy and it's for the BIG trucks.

Looks like if u cut the trans mounting boss down u might be able to bolt to the 3 bell housing bosses? Just a thought

Patrick,

On a '36 pickup the pedal mount is the same for 3 and 4 speed transmissions. Here's what it looks like by itself and installed with a tandem MC adapted to it.
