Lokar gas pedal location

I have a 1957 Chevy 1/2 ton with a 1964 Chevy 327 V8 in it. It has a Holley 0-1850C carburetor. I’m installing a Lokar XBSG-6148 gas pedal, and I can’t find any specific location directions from Lokar other than I’ll need to remove the original pedal stop and bracket.

Does anyone have experience with this modification or any pictures or advice regarding the location of the pedal?

Thank you for any ideas.
Larry

Best thing to do with almost any aftermarket pedal, is sit in the seat and put your gas pedal foot in a comfortable operating position. That is where you want to mount your new pedal. Motion your foot through the full range.

Thanks! The seat’s out, but I can easily fix that. Sometimes I can’t see the forest for the trees. This project has so many details; I need a supervisor. Oh wait…here she comes!

Has anybody here used the Lokar parts that I mentioned. It looks like I might need to fab something to creat a flat spot on the firewall for the cable to pass through. I’m taking pictures so someone else might benefit from this particular project.

The 57' project truck I am working on has a Lokar gas pedal assembly. The PO mounted it really close to the trans tunnel, it makes it difficult to get a comfortable angle on with your foot. On the engine side it doesn't lineup properly with the carb linkage. I haven't addressed it yet but I'm thinking of moving it. I thought about fabbing up a flat plate/bracket for the inside.

Thanks for checking in. Sounds like we could benefit from sharing some ideas. I’m going to spend some time sitting in the seat as recommended above before I start drilling holes. I’ll post pics when I do that. I’ll be gone for a week so look back here in a couple of weeks if you like.

Usually, the Lokar cable will give a ton of adaptability.

My Lokar cable needed to come through the firewall where is was not flat. I had to make an angled bracket to hold the cable where it would line up with the carburetor linkage and the inside pedal.

I cut a piece of stock at the correct angle so it fit firewall and was flat where the linkage went through the hole i drilled in the stock. Worked great until i sold the panel 7 yeats years later. Lokar never gave me a monent problem.

I'd rather walk and carry a Chevy hub cap than ride in a Ferd.

Thanks, everyone for your ideas and experience. I’m on a short trip, but I’ll respond with my results as I get it taken care of.
