any one have a good clear picture of the parking brake pedal set up for a 1952 3100 ? I have a pedal that works but no locking parts, no hole in the floor where I have seen pictures of a curved rod going down to some thing ? found the release rod in the back but not sure what it hook to. Thanks

Here is what all the parts look like, the short upright on the Z-bar is where the rod attaches back to the center bar that pulls the cables.

Was that floor panel replaced/repaired (by you, or, by previous owner)?

They didn't do you any favors

Is the parking brake bracket assembled? That will locate the hole for you

Attached is photo of the bare-metal flange (correct term?) where the pedal and shaft assembly go thru the floor panel in my '48 Chevy 1/2 ton truck. Did it come off the assembly line looking like this, or should it be painted black? Also, what did the original fasteners look like? I do realize that very few people will ever see it with it being covered by the floor mat. Thanks. LUKE

Looks correct to me. Probably cadmium plated originally. Rustoleum Silver Metallic spray paint makes for a wonderful replication of cadmium plating if sprayed over Rustoleum Self-etching primer. It flows horribly and somewhat splotchy, which matches Cadmium plating perfectly.

Here is the "after photo"--the cleanup is complete...
