Yesterday while digging though a tub of spare parts, I ran across a package of Pedal Stop Bumper Pads I had purchased from Erik's Military Surplus a few years ago. Not wanting good Sunday afternoon project time to go to waste, I grabbed the package, a few tools, and out to the driveway I went. Looking at the clutch pedal linkage from underneath the wheel-well, seemed simple enough. I removed the 3/8" X 2" bolt holding the pedal to the linkage, and removed the pedal from inside the cab. Cleaned up the end of the shaft with the wire-wheel, a little never-seize on the bolt threads and re-installed with the pad positioned under the floorboard. By the way, I've read that the brake and clutch pedals are adjustable...not without some modification they aren't. There is a groove in the pedal shaft that the bolt resides in, unless you cut another groove in that shaft, it all goes back together in the same place. Now we move on to the brake pedal...a different story altogether. The clutch pedal linkage, accelerator pedal linkage and mount, and winch drive shaft are all obstacles to remove the brake pedal bolt. I tried every combination of sockets, extensions, and swivels to remove that bolt from underneath, no joy. Then the came on...go from the top side! I pulled the front floor panel and access to the bolt was much easier, I had to use an extension and swivel socket, but it was doable. There is a notable small difference in heat and noise reduction, and another irritating vibration is dampened. I know this is a real simple project, but I thought I would give someone a little heads-up that may wish to tackle it.
