    The aa pedals are from a 60’s Chevy if you want them cheaper. If you didn’t have a need for hydro clutch maybe something could be made to use it as a dual reservoir mc. :shrug:

    It actually works fine, and why it's taking me so long to swap it out - powers the front discs and rear 11". I agree the dual MC and separate clutch MC's are a better way to go. I ended up keeping it from a PO as I ran short of time with the initial conversion.

    I've actually got a second set of pedals I pulled from an old truck on the farm. I may modify the fabrication on to fit new Wilwood MC's - we will see.

    No, kidding...A 60's Chevy, the AA pedals... That makes them even more interesting. That makes sense. Years ago I asked an old timer about his swing pedals and he told me to use Chevy pedals and M/C: one side for the clutch, one side for the brakes.

    I plan to do some sort of swing pedal set-up this year. There's tons of options. The biggest challenge for me will be deciding where I want the brake pedal in relation to the steering column. I like the Wilwood stuff but they're aluminum which will be hard for me to bend or modify.

    I don't bend the pedals on the Wilwood, I've been able to get the brake pedal to just clear to the right of the column (mine are all saginaw as well). Clutch is easy.
