It's a short stubby guy - 3/8" x 24 - 5/8" long.

During assembly of the pedal box we noticed that this cover p/n 106670 was distorted. In fact the four bolts welded in place were splayed out and would not line up with the master cylinder bracket. When you examine this part you can see that it is a simple metal pressing made from rather light gauge steel. If it becomes distorted, it can contribute to uneven action and binding of the brake and clutch pedals. This could lead to an unsafe condition. The mechanism in question is already somewhat troublesome because itís difficult to lubricate.

A Solution
We made up a stiffener from a piece of flat steel and welded it to the inside of the cover where it is cannot be seen.

What thickness of metal did you use for the plate Frank? Nice work and a very innovative solution....
