Hello to All

I'm not sure if one is available but I am looking for a brake / clutch pedal shaft that may have grease fittings at one or both ends to lubricate the brake / clutch pedals. This would be an after market shaft. Does anybody know of a supplier for something like this. The car is a 1936 Chevrolet Master Model FA. The Filling Station does not carry one for this application. Thanks for any input.

Tom H.

If you cant located a suitable shaft you could drill your existing shaft with very little effort.

Tony,

Thanks for the suggestion. The shaft I have is nothing more than a piece of pipe. Both ends are open to about 3/8". I can put a grease fitting in the ends if I use a reducer. The problem is that by the time I drill and tap the hole it doesn't leave much of the shaft wall left. Especially on the clutch side where it's reduced down to accept a spring clip to hold the clutch pedal in place. My thought (hope) was that someone made a replacement solid shaft with grease fitting in the ends. I was trying to save the expense of going to a machine shop and having one fabricated. What do you think -- am I over thinking this?

Thanks again for the comment.
Tom H.

Check with Bill at C & P Automotive http://billypossum.com/C&P_Catalog/C&P_Catalog_rev_031225.htm He might know if the parts he makes can be used or easily modified for your application. Might be a good idea to be able to tell him the length and diameter of the shaft as he may not know or easily find them.

Thanks Chipper for the lead. The one he has on his website is not for a Model FA. It is the same one offered by the Filling Station. I did call and get Bill on the phone and he could not offer any leads on where to find one. I appreciate the effort.

Regards,
Tom H.

You could plug both ends with mild steel,drill & tap one side for the small grease fitting . Wish I had thought of that on my 37 GB I just greased it up as best I could, it did not show much wear so I called it good.
