REBUILDING PEDAL ASSEMBLY:
From my parts Fiero I will be using the 5-Speed getrag
transmission and the clutch / pedal assembly that came with it, to help with my automatic to manual conversion.
I pulled a spare pedal assembly from the junkyard as well to ensure that I had all the necessary hardware / spare parts. Using a new replacement clutch pedal
from the Fiero Store, I dissasembled the entire assembly, degreased it, painted it, and re-assembled it. All cars came with a slot for the clutch master cyl, it simply needs to be popped out to reveal the opening.
All wear points, bushings, etc, were greased with white lithium grease during and after assembly. Note: This is important as you cannot do most of this after re-assembly. The bolts were all assembled with blue Loc-Tite.
Also, when rebuilding the pedal assembly, make sure that the pivot bolt /shaft is not bent. These pedals take quite a bit of abuse and one of the pedal assemblies was noticeably bent, rendering it useless. Other than the new pedal
and a new pedal rubber, I had more than enough good spare parts to ensure a quality rebuild.
It's interesting to note that all pedal assemblies, automatic or manual, are basically the same. The difference between them is the size of the foot-print
on the brake pedal, the length of the rod assembly, and the addition of the clutch pedal "carrier" that attaches to the left side of the brake pedal bracket. After installation of the pedal assembly, I also installed the brake
switch and the clutch safety-switch assembly.
