Removing pedal assy. '49 F-1

Never done this before, never seen much on it. If this has been covered, please let me know and I will kill this thread. Can anyone help me figure out how to remove my pedal assy? In particular, the clutch pedal. I am having a tab welded onto it for my clutch cable to allow enough travel to actually have a fully engaged clutch. Pretty exciting stuff! Do I need to remove the master cyl? I know I need to remove the floor pan parts and pedal pads...anything else?

Thanks!!!

Pedal assy is bolted to the x member with 3 or 4 bolts....2 of em hold the master cyl on.

You should be able to leave the master cyl there, just tie it up or support it so it doesn't kink the lines.

It should drop right out once everything is disconnected. Not sure about removing the pedals from the brackets....

Ok...thanks for the advise. After doing some more homework I found it is best not to weld on the pedal mounts...so I intend to make a bracket. I will put some pics up once I get it done. Thanks!

If you intend to remove them to assemble your bracket, you'll probably want to remove the floor pieces around the steering column/pedals.

The pedal pads just unscrew from the arms. Std right hand thread so crank on them ccw to remove.

If you want to remove the pedals from the pedal shaft, there is a .25 diameter pin at the end where the zerk fitting is. Sometimes these assemblies get so gooped up, people don't know they are there.

One of the parts trucks I bought some time ago had the clutch pedal removed. It kind of threw me off for a brief moment before I could figure out what was going on.
