Brake Lights Stay on After Tremec Swap

O.k. - I realize it has nothing to do with the tranny, but since I went from auto to manual and isntalled the new pedal assembly I've had this issue where the brakelight switch is not beng pushed in enough when brake pedal is released and returns to normal position. The swith has been adjusted to max setting. I was getting by with a rig-job-spacer on the brake pedal arm that helped for a while but is now intermittent and looking for a permanent fix. Anyobody else been here and found a replacement pedal switch that works well?

sounds like you are missing this piece: http://www.rickscamaros.com/product....dept%5Fid=3440

I had the same issue when I converted to power discs, but I didn't know about that piece back then and ended up getting a longer brake light switch at Autozone.

Thanks for posting that helpful info. Does this piece actually mount on the pedal arm?

I think so... I'm pretty sure I've seen pics of it installed in the Suspension forum on here

Yes. On a power brake car, the brake rod clevis goes through the lower hole, and the striker bolts through the upper. Manual brake cars did not use the striker.

Re: Brake Lights Stay on After Tremec Swap

Thanks for that link to photo Eric. It's going to be hard to justify paying $18 plus shipping for that small piece of tin and a bolt so I think I'll attempt to bend my own piece out of some scrap. Appreciate all the help.
