'69 clutch pedal bumper
« on: July 18, 2016, 07:08:54 pm »
Does anyone have a picture of where the bumper attaches to the bracket? As I was driving a few days ago the poorly rigged substitute bumper fell onto the floor. Some kind of rubber hunks, glued together and apparently glued into place by the previous owner. I have a new correct bumper but can't see where exactly it installs. I looked at the service manual CD and can't find anything about the bumper. Thanks.   Dave R.

Seems to be a pattern here.

I think Perogie's sells the pedal bumpers.

Vcode, the bumper is available from several vendors. $1.95 at Ohio Mustang. Have the bumper but I can't seem to wiggle myself into position to see where it goes. I thought if I had a picture to give me a idea of where it goes I might be able to feel my way enough to put the bumper in the proper hole or slot or whatever.   Thanks.   Dave R.

Dan, thanks so much. Am I right that your bumper in the picture is red in color?   Dave R.

Hopefully that will help. Will try again tomorrow. Dan, does the nipple on the back of the bumper go through a hole or slide into a slot? If you don't remember it is no big deal. Thanks a ton.   Dave R.

Really. I would never have guessed that they were red. The several repros I have seen on various sites are black. Thanks Vcode.   Dave R.

So I had to go take a look and of course I have something different.  No bump at all but I do have a nut and bolt ?  I think I am looking in the right spot?  First picture; nut, bolt and pedal stop.  Second picture clutch pedal engaged, on the floor, and the stop area only.  If it matters; 69 and PDB's.  Did look up the 'Red ' bumper and it is $15.00.  Brian

There were two bumpers used in 1969

C8OZ-7583-B for 351/390/428/429 - Red

Interesting.  I have never seen a red bumper on any '69 car.

Thanks Brian. It looks like someone has replaced the rubber bumper with a nut and bolt possibly to make the stop adjustable. I have the seat out and as big as these cars seem there is very little room under there for a full size guy. I even had my 5'4, 120 lb. wife under there and still can't find the hole where the bumper goes. I'll keep trying. Cooling off right now. 91.9* here today. Only 90.6* in the garage.   Dave R.

Vcode, is there a physical size difference between red and black?    Dave R.

Dave,

I don't know about the dimensions - I have only seen the red.
The MPC only states the length - which is 7/16" - that dimension is the same for both.
