MK pedal fitting???

MK welded the brackets to suit 'MK Pedals' on my chassis when they made it for me. I have the pedals supplied from MK, but for the life of me I cannot see the logical way of mounting them

I am guessing that there should be some bushes in the big holes??? If so does anybody know what they are off?

Does anybody have some pics so I can get my head around it?

Here's what I have...




And here are the brackets welded in place...




PS. ignore that pedal already fitted its of another car

Looks as though you are missing the bushes.

MK should have supplied hard plastic ones to go into the tube on the pedals.

You then bolt through the brackets welded to the chassis.


You'll also need to make up some brackets to act as pedal stops.

You are indeed missing a set of bushes. Ring Baz on mon morning and clarify wether or not you ordered them and didn't get them or just didn't order them because u didn't know they were available.They are usually in stock.Hope this is of help.

I have managed to find the bushes, they were in a box in my garage.

The brackets seem a bit far back not much room for pedal movement

the pedals should be leaning quite a bit forward

Plastic bushes? Are these a recent thing, as mine has metal bushes.
