Bronze pedal bushings?
« on: June 12, 2023, 06:02:50 PM »
Greetings.
I was hoping to find an answer to this.

I have a 1968 Camaro SS. Does anyone make bronze bushings for the brake and clutch pedals?

I can find them for Mopar and BMW's but not Camaro's. All I can find is the plastic ones and people rave about the bronze ones for other makes.

Thank you.

You might try contacting this manufacturer of bronze bushings with the measurements needed for your 1969 Camaro:

Or you might see if a place like McMaster Carr has something off-the-shelf that would work.  NFI

Hum, Very interesting.
GM Plastic
UPC 7  C2 (CLUTCH)
PC 2
PN3798256
UPC 5  A3 (BRAKE)
PC 3
PN3798256

Establishing same PN for both pedals.

Discussion: The Factory and replacements have a spiral "split" on the inner sleeve portion of the bushings, most brass-bronze bushing are not split. Was this feature for lubricant retention or to allow for tolerance variations on the parts to accommodate "slop" and aide assembly.

This is a good hidden upgrade.
