This is a somewhat stupid question but I have a pedal box to go in to my '72 BMW--what size bolts/nuts are required to mount it? I got just a bare pedal box..... :wacko:

The pedal box has captured nuts, so all you will need are some bolts.

Sorry, I do not know the size off hand.

 

There have been discussions about what sort of sealer to put behind the flange, when you mount it.

I used strip putty, like they use behind the flange on RV windows and such.

It worked very well.

The thirty foot roll was about ten bucks.

(You get about ten times as much as you need).

Thanks Buckeye---- I am assuming that any BMW parts dealer should be able to supply?

 

76MintGrun02-- that is a nice looking pedal box you have there--what parts did you recondition before reassembly?

 

As always, thanks to all of the knowledgeable guys out there willing to help a newbie....!

Nice set up---did you buy a pedal box reconditioning kit? This is one nice job---well done!

Sheet metal screws?

I think mine is attached with small bolts.

 

I did buy a rebuild kit from Blunttech.

IE also sells another option.

 

My box was very rusty, from a leaking clutch master cylinder, so I did a little patch work.

Probably not a practical approach, but it was fun.

Unfortunately my new clutch master is leaking now too, so I will be getting back in there one of these days.

Thanks!   I had the original 69 bucket and pedals powdercoated semi-gloss black, added pedal box rebuild kit from BLUNT then added I.E. pedal bearing kit.  Silver parts are simply cleaned up and spray painted using Eastwood Alumablast paint and clear coat.

M8 bolts if you have the captured nuts.
 

 

To clarify:  M8 x 1.25--the latter number is the pitch, as there are 8 x 1mm (fine thread) bolts too.
