    Here is picture of Brake and Clutch Pedal assemble, there is a red clip that has to be removed and then Clutch Pedal/shaft can slide out. You have to disconnect the clutch rod and brake rod linkage and carefully remove the blue assist spring, before sliding out the Clutch Pedal/shaft.......

    Thanks. This helps. Can I then put the break back in?Or will there not be the mounting gear for the left side of the brake?

    So you just want to remove the Clutch Pedal and then just install the same Brake Pedal? If so, you would have to use a 5/8" bolt/nut to secure the Brake Pedal to the support bracket and use same nylon pedal/shaft bushings (4)........

    Couldn't he just use the pin from an automatic setup? I'll have to compare mine tomorrow after work.

    After thought....you would do well to swap to the auto setup and sell your manual parts, there's more demand than supply!

    Some shafts on the automatic where 3/8" diameter and others where 5/8" diameter, so he would have to make sure to get the correct 5/8" one for his support bracket.....
