  Hey guys. I need to swap a manual transmission brake pedal/clutch pedal setup for a single automatic brake pedal on a '68. I have the automatic pedal and pivot pin to make the change. I also have the cover for the firewall where the clutch pedal rod goes through. Will the automatic pedal simply replace the other pedals with no other parts? It looks as if the other assembly will just drop out when I take everything loose and remove the pivot pin, and the automatic pedal will fit right back in. But before I take the dash apart I don't want any surprises. The car has manual drum brakes if that makes any difference. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

It should be easy and just hook up in there with the existing parts and the new pedal.  If you need any of the parts to do this, let me know, as I removed my automatic brake pedal and installed a clutch one.

  Yes, 68Z--that is the pivot pin I mentioned. The pedal and pivot shaft/pin are new from Rick's, just as in the picture you posted. Thanks fellows. You guys rock.
