Fella’s and Ladies (I had to stick that in there because my wife saw a post I made when I only acknowledged the fella’s – and it was not pretty, believe me),

This should be an easy one. I am attempting to install an accelerator pedal pad on my 69 Camaro. The car went through a full restoration a few years ago. I purchased it a couple of weeks ago. I am not the most technically inclined when it comes to mechanics – but this should be a no brainer (I thought). The arm for the pedal is rounded at the end that faces the driver. No holes in it to stick pin through. I also have a spring - I can see how the spring would push against the arm.

I have not ruled out that the shaft for the accelerator pedal does not belong on the car – if that is true, does anybody recognize what it belongs on? This way I can at least find a pedal to match it.

Thanks all for you help with this,
David.

I don't believe they pin in the back, but I'm not 100% sure. I don't remember pinning mine or anything being behind it. Mines a 67, I'll have to look again.

I just replaced the trim on my '69 Z28 gas pedal and yes it has to have the hole for the pin and spring. I'm having a time getting it all back together. I looked it up in my Assembly Manual and it showed a picture of how it goes back so maybe with some luck I can get it installed. Good luck. Donnie (1969 Fathom Green stock Z28)

Thanks all for the information. It sounds like I have the wrong arm for it. Before I wear a hole in another pair of shoes, I will head down to Camaro Specialties and find a new one. I am going to order a new assembly manual, the one I have is an ebay special and not much help. Any suggestions, I plan on ordering something via. Amazon.com through this website.
Thanks again all,
David.

Colden, Welcome to the site! I see you live in my back yard (I live in O.P.) Bob probably has the manuals in stock. Will you have your car ready for the WCA eastern Nats in July at U.B?

Hi John,
This is the first I've heard of the WCA, this is my first classic car. Is that some type of local club - I have been thinking about joining one. Either way, I will try to attend.
Thanks for the information, hope to see you around.
David.
