Anyone ever pull a brake pedal from a ramcharger? The 82 r/c has a bad Brake booster and the booster rod has a bolt goin through the pedal.... my 85 r/c has a good booster, but the rod goin to the pedal has a clip holding it on.... so I could swap the pedals and cure this prob... anyone ever do this??

Yes, you need to match the pedal to the brake booster rod.

To change the pedal you just need to slide out the axle rod that the pedal swings on. It's very easy. On the right side of the rod is a small nut and bolt that holds it to the support under the dash. Remove the nut and bolt and that rod will slide right out. The pedal will drop to the floor.

Has anyone ever "Re-bushed" the brake pedal side to side play in their truck or RC? Mine actually rattles when you hit bumps, (It's annoying), and I've considered pulling the shaft and shimming out the play. Has anyone else done this?

Has anybody successfully shimmed their brake pedal to eliminate the side to side play out of it? I know my '90 RC brake pedal rattles when I hit a bump and it can be annoying.

I'm thinking of pulling the shaft and fabbing shims to take up the additional play with plastic, self lubricating washers of some sort. ::)

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

When you pull the pedal off there are plastic (nylon?) bushings between the pedal and the shaft it swings on. They can wear out and possibly cause the problem you're talking about. I just bought some at the dealer a few months ago. I'll try to find the part number.

Thanks, I'd appreciate the pn, if you can come up with it.

Yes, that's right. I don't remember the exact price but it was pocket money.

I can't find the PN on the bushings. Musta thrown the package out before I wrote it down. Go to the dealer. A good parts man can find them in about two minutes. They're the same for clutch or brake pedals.

Cool, I need these parts for both of my trucks in a bad way. I've kinda gotten used to the brake in the '79 doing it, and the clutch in the '77 though... :p
