Re: [Chrysler300] Ram K Brake Pedal report





Would make sense to use one pedal and two holes . But 60 for sure not like that , pedals are different . Apparently they went later  to one pedal and two holes ; as you know 60-61 had all that trigger stuff high up on power pedal on top of pivot for booster mounted over the master. I really do not know about 63-64 non ram power, or manual .. 
this is good to go through! Thank you

John, Rich and group:

I was able to inspect  a Ram K today as well as a 64 manual  brake Newport.

Both cars had the "two-hole" pedal configuration for attaching the master cylinder pushrod.


The manual brake Newport utilized the upper hole on the brake pedal. The firewall reinforcement plate

mounts the master cylinder approx 3" up from the bottom of the plate.


The Ram K utilized the lower hole on the brake pedal. The firewall plate mounts the master cylinder approx. 1-1/4"

up from the bottom of the plate.


Note also that neither of these firewall plates  would work with a power booster. The mounting holes are not spaced to do so plus the booster requires a much larger hole for the pushrod and the manual masters aren't large enough to fully cover that particular hole.


So there are at least 3 different Firewall plates for the 64s.

It is hard to tell exactly while lying on my back in a footwell, but I'd be willing to bet that all the 64 brake pedals are the same.


John, you were right about the upper hole being correct  for the manual brakes !

Hope to have some photos for Bob Merritt to post.
