Direct master cylinder pedal box needed please

Post by Sav »

Good day to you all, I'm very new here and I have had a very good search on the topic but i'm struggling to find answers on this one. I have a late model rhd 316 with the big servo bracket linkage etc on it. I am considering getting shot of this big tangle of metal for a direct master cylinder with a chase bays manual braking conversion on it. I already have some wilwood four pots ready to go on so it should work out quite nicely. however, I need to find a pedal box without the stanchion bracket on it. I also have a broken arm for the accelerator cable that needs replacing alongside it. This last part I cannot find a part number for, it's like it does not exist. So if anyone has just that I'd be appreciative of the info.
Thanks for your time guys and have a lovely day

for a direct master linkage for a RHD, did you study the catalog of rally design?

for the arm, no 5 in this diagram? http://bmwfans.info/parts-catalog/E21/E ... den_cable/

Hey there, yes! this is the diagram, unfortunately, its number 13, the one discontinued by the factory. ooh heck, I knew it would be a troublesome one when it went. Thank you so much for the diagram

75-77 rhd cars had a master cylinder bolted to the pedal box (same cylinder as a 2002)with two remote servos.
a early e12 bmw master cylinder is the same fitting but has a larger bore size .comparing my 75-77rhd pedal box to the later type i would say bmw just deleted the master cylinder fixing holes and added the extention bracket to mate with the remote linkage i the engine bay..

Thank you for the info on the early to late comparison. I've been trying to find pictures of the earlier plate to compare it. I was hoping to perhaps find an earlier plate but as its the same plate with an added bracket I'm wondering if it's worth cutting the bracket away with a grinder? then drill new holes for the cylinder. I wonder if there are any markings to guide the drilling? I'll have to go and look now.
