    do u know exactly what year these came out of? I don't think it matters, but I THINK 67-72 and 73-up had minor differences?? :) And wasn't there a heavy duty bearing setup instead of bushings? Im just curious, and slightly interested..lol

    I bought two sets, kind of like my 4 bell housings and 2 trans, trying to figure all of this out, to change my 68 to a 4 speed. So it has been quite an education. :D
    I was told by the person I bought these from that they came out of a 70 340 Duster.
    The other set that I have, is from a 69, and is quite a bit different. It doesn't have the switch on the clutch, and the brake pedal arm isn't curled.

    I have finally decided the automatic is just fine, and am going to try and get most of my money back out of the purchases. (getting old and tired)

    oh okay...I see...I have a complete 4 speed pedal assembly as well, but I don't think my brake pedal is curled either, but I cant check right now to make sure, its all in storage! do you have a pic of your other assembly??

    also, is the switch on the clutch for when you have to push the clutch in order for the car to start??

    Sure, I can go take a picture later, it is just like the one shown in the below link for the 67-69. Yes, I believe the switch is for the start up.

    It could be, they don't show a picture of a 73-74, but you are right, it sure doesn't look like the 70 the guy told me it was. It looks much more like the 75-76. I wonder what the 73-74 looks like?

    The older style is actually better, look at the article in December 2010 Mopar Muscle magazine clutch pedal fix, the older style bracket that attaches to the rod through the firewall is a little longer, which makes the geometry better making the clutch pedal work better. I did the upgrade on mine already, it was pretty easy.

    Does anyone know what the deal is with some pedal assemblies having the metal piece (maybe a guard) covering the large spring while others don't have it? Did only certain years of pedals have that metal piece and did it really serve a purpose? I have a set of pedals from a 68 Dart and they don't have it but I have seen others for sale that do have it.

    On page 6-4, my 68 Plymouth Service Manual ID's the pedal set with the metal guard around the over center spring as Barracuda 383 Cu. inch (heavy duty clutch) I think this type of pedal set was also used on 340 cars.

    They were used in '67-'69 340, 383 cars. They had that metal guard, a stronger spring I think, a pin is used to attach the spring to the bracket, and they had bearings instead of plastic bushings.

    I got mine out of a 73 340 duster in the junkyard, and they have the bracket, and needle bearings in them factory. They also have the twisted brake pedal, so I'm sure they are original to the car I got them from.

    I have been told by several people to bypass the switch, and start the car in neutral, I guess it's hard on the pilot bushing when starting the car with the pedal pushed in, and then releasing the pedal. I was looking for a new switch, when I found this out, mine look's like someone cut the wire right off. Anyway, that's a great deal for a very nice set of pedals!

    Well at least this has been an educational thread. Does anyone want to make me an offer on these fine pieces of mechanical evolution? :D
