nice clamps - that's what you want

in lieu of toenail painting, this is a good time to "paint" away the rust bolt heads on the car...

Quick question. Went to start Tilda today and the gas pedal came apart. Can anyone tell me how to orient the loose piece? I can't find an area where the part with the bent cotter pin should go.
I have the 1966 service manual but cant find a section on the pedal cluster.....
Thanks
Queenie

Kind of hard to see but this pic shows where the piece mounts.

Google "FCP Euro Pedal Cluster" to get great images and really good description.

There is a warning about not crossing the throttle rod with the clutch cable and fork.

Your part looks worn, pretty sure you can order a new one along with bushing kit that includes the little cotter pin (Stoddard bushing kit through Pelican Parts).

This is the only one i could find and it doesn't say that it will fit a '66. Any thoughts?

I'd think the bushings are gone, probably time to pull the cluster and rebuild it... its a bit of a PIA.. My scanner isn't working so I took a pick of an exploded pedal cluster from an old manual..

Did that come out with the cotter pin in place? If so bushings are gone..

Not hard to do. If your 6' 2" then its tight. I'm only 5'6" so it was easy to get in there. Definitely order the bushing kit with washer and cotter pin.

You guys are awesome!! Really!
Will the stoddard set that I posted above work for my year (1966)? Is there an all metal set that would be better?
Yes, the cotter pin was bent but still attached, there were no bushings on the rod piece.
I also have electric wires attached in the same tight area (?brake lights) but at least I am not working inside the tunnel like I had originally thought I would have to.

And I am 5'3" and 100 lbs- but it is still hard to get to

This kit has the Bronze bushings and fits from 65 on up, but I think the Stoddard kit will also work.

While i'm there.... (Haha I know)
There are several small drill holes in my floor board. Fill them or leave them alone?

When I rebuilt the pedal cluster on my 78 911SC I noticed that the clutch cable end and bushing were worn. So worn that it was difficult to remove the clevis because of the deep notch. Good time to inspect that area as well and if the clutch cable has not been renewed now may be the time to do it.

I was kind of hoping to just leave the whole thing in place and slip the bushings on accelerator piece, replace the pin, and be done. I have a feeling that taking of the whole cluster might turn into a different tyope of cluster (ha). Thoughts ?

Also, I had my car detailed this week after neglecting for a few (six) months and found a few several new concerns.
1 The wheels have weird white stains(?vaseline? Polishing compound?)? What is this from? Hard water?
2. Yikes- is this rust under the paint? If so what should I do? I have some touch up paint. Should I scrape and prime and paint?

If my memory serves I think in the long run it would be much better and easier to remove the cluster and do the work on a bench. Others may take a different view.

As to the paint I do believe that those are indeed rust bubbles...

Yeah, that rust is probably under the window seal. Short of removing the window, sanding, priming and painting the visible area is something you should do before rust eats a hole thru the metal. I like to use phosphoric acid after sanding to let it eat the rust away before priming. Has worked well for me in stopping corrosion.
