I don't know if this applies, but I think the clutch and brake pedal assembly bolts on the bell housing on the pre 47 trucks. I didn't see the place to do that on you r bell housing. I had to get a modified bell housing to bolt on a SM 420 in my 47 Panel truck.

Ronsway If I were you I'd find an insert bearing 235 to work over or 261. Might even find an OK used engine to bolt in, those 2 systems are designed to be easier to work on and repair. That special sick feeling you get when shimmed bearings spin and ruin your expensive and tedious build are not worth it ! Especially if your not experienced in shim bearing work. I'm glad my shim days are over,I'll be able to finish off the 2 I have then go to insert bearing modern system.
