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.
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?

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.
How Sweet the roar of a Chevy four!
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.

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.
