Stick the proper pedal on there and it'll work even better.....



The manual pedal is actually longer than a power one. BUT it still ends up being the same distance off the floor because it mounts in the upper bolts of the pedal assembly.

just to clairfy the pedals not longer, the piviot point is closer on the man ped then the power ped, i change these all the time,mill the weld off,fill the hole,drill new hole in pedal,and reweld in the piviot point,done...i just did another one a week ago

The manual pedal is longer when measured from pivot to bottom. The pivot, not MC connection point, on the manual pedal is higher. It physically mounts in the upper set of holes in the pedal box. The power pedal mounts in the lower set of holes. If you move a power pedal to the manual holes the pedal will be "short" when measured to the floor...

By cutting, welding and moving the MC connection point downwards on a power pedal you effectively achieve the same thing but then it gives a slight angle to the MC rod which I don't like.

Boss, I wasn't taking a shot at you just mentioning that there is a difference between pedals. I had both of them laid out side by side and looked over the differences myself.
