2000Ca Pedal Box


Recommended Posts

Pedal arrangement the same between single and dual carbs. The difference is the length of the booster mounting tube. It's short for single carb, allowing the larger diameter booster to fit between the manifold and the firewall. For dual carbs, the tube is longer, so that the smaller "tii" -style booster fits under the two carbs.

Better peek in there to see if there are empty brackets. It may be trans specific, which would mean major excavations (booster, etc.). Looks like the brake pedal is different, so you'd need those too at minimum. It may be a bigger job than meets the eye. Having said that, a 5 speed overdrive conversion would be nice if you plan to keep the car.

Hans got curious and according to realoem, there are different pedal panels for auto and manual, with different booster arrangement. Its worth looking at your car, but if true, it would be much easier accessing a manual parts car. I'd be tempted to do the 5 speed OD swap while the car is stripped. The auto is going to be glacier-like and if that sucker acts up, it would not be cost effective to repair it. If memory serves, the auto driveshaft  front section was about the length you need, but not the flange. But I'd have to consult the Blue Book for that one.

I'm anxiously awaiting for the paint shop. I'm not sure if I mentioned that I purchased this car disassembled with what appears to be almost all the parts, including a brand new booster and master cylinder, so not sure if those are useful in the 5 speed. I still have plenty of time while to decide while putting this thing together, which looks challenging in itself. I appreciate all the pointers, they are storing in my brain. I'm enjoying the process. I have a new wood set coming soon, that's exciting.

Did you rebuild your heater box? That's what I'm doing now.

Now a good time to do the heater box. If you have an original heater valve with brass innards, you can get O-ring from a good bearing store. The rubber bits by the hoses are available - 2002?

As to pedals, etc., its easier to do that prior to assembling the interior. CS used a different booster than C to clear twin carbs. I'm not sure how much interchanges with NK sedans - Realoem.com is a good reference.
