That thing is F-ing SLICK way more pro looking than any of the other brackets I've seen. where did you get it, or did you fab these yourself?

I actually made the first few in my home shop, it is a very well equipped shop. But as I got more requests for them I decided to have them made, as I couldn't keep up the quality as well as I would like. I work as an engineer in the automotive industry and I used some of my contacts to have them made. The shop that is manufacturing these for me is a supplier to the automotive industry and is ISO registered. I am very happy with the quality of these, the only problem is that to get the price down I had to make a lot of them.

that's great...
from the pictures alone it looks like a really high quality piece ... way nicer than the hunk of aluminum with a few holes in it that most of the "professional" swap companies are selling. I can't wait to get it in Very Happy

FWIW I work in aerospace manufacturing myself, if I hadn't found this I was going to see if I could pull a favor with one of the machinists on the floor... but now I don't have to Cool

Copied from my post on another forum:

Here it is step by step instructions of how to get a Wilwood clutch master cylinder to install in your S13 or S14 240sx:

Here you can see them side by side. Factory Nissan on top, Wilwood on bottom. The Wilwood cylinder rod has different threads, so you will have to transfer the Nissan rod into it.


Step 1: Disassemble both master cylinders
Remove the boots from both master cylinders.

Remove the C-clip from the Wilwood cylinder. You can use either a small pair of c-clip pliers or a sharp pair of needle nose pliers(I used a leatherman, it worked great). With the c-clip removed the shaft and retainer plate will come out.

Remove the clip from the Nissan cylinder. The Nissan uses a different kind of clip, it is easily removed with a small screwdriver.



Here you can see both torn down to components.

Step 2: Reassemble Wilwood cylinder with Nissan rod
Insert the Nissan rod into the Wilwood cylinder. Use the retainer plate and c-clip from the Wilwood cylinder. Reinstall boot. The secondary boot cover may not be needed as it may not fit through the firewall hole.

Step 3: Install adapter bracket

Bolt on adapter bracket and it is ready to install in car.




Here is a link to the Wilwood small bore master cylinder page so you can see the different bore sizes.
http://www.wilwood.com/Products/006-...SBMC/index.asp
They are around $50 from most of the major online parts stores (summit, jegs, ect.)

For my LS1 these were the required lines and fittings:

63010236ERL - Brake Line, Speed-Flex, Braided Stainless Steel, 36 in., -3 AN Female, 10mm or 3/8 in. Banjo, $24.99
997503ERL - Fitting, Adapter, Banjo Bolt w/ Crush Washer 3/ 8"-24 Single, Steel, $8.39
RUS-640281 - Adapter Fitting; Flare Clutch Fitting; AN Size -3; Male $20.69, comes with 2 fittings but you only need 1.

I got the bracket in yesterday... that was some quick shipping, it looks slick.



I'm converting from an Auto so I still have to drill holes in the firewall

I already have a clutch pedal and I'll be picking up a used Nissan Master Cylinder this Saturday so hopefully it will be all bolted up this weekend Cool

Any chance you'll start making brackets to bolt a vette DBW petal into the 240... or maybe some sway bar spacers?

I'd buy those products in a heart beat if they were the same quality and price point as this...

I could look into that. I know someone doing an ls2 swap so I could look at doing the pedal bracket for sure.

The GTO, Corvette, and Trucks all have different pedal mounting points.

I'm fairly certain that all of the GTO pedals are the same
and I know for a fact that the 97-present Vette Mounting points are the same since I've owned both the new and old style pedals and had them side-by-side

I don't know the variations in the truck pedals Confused

but yeah a GTO bracket likely wouldn't work with a Vette pedal.

I could send you pictures/scans/dimensions of my vette pedal if you like.

or I could let you borrow it for a few days if you make me a free bracket Very Happy

As of 5/20/09 price had dropped on these from $20.20 each to $18.00 each. I have fixed the original post to show the difference. I received a price break on the latest batch of these and therefore can lower the price of them. Thanks for the orders everyone.

Mine is all installed at this point. looks and works great Very Happy

Any progress on that pedal adapter?

this is what the corvette pedal looks like:
http://chevythunder.com/APPS%20pedal%20and%20sensor.jpg
98-04 use that pedal, the 05+ uses a different pedal but the mounting points are the same (I had both an 04 and an 05 pedal right next to each other at one point)

this is an 05+ pedal: http://forums.240sxone.com/picture.php?albumid=3&pictureid=24

I'd be happy to take measurements for you.

Just wanted to touch base before I send the payment. You still have some of these left?

I still have a bunch of these if anyone needs them. Shoot me an email or PM with your paypal address and I can send you an invoice. If you want to pay another way just let me know.
Thanks,
Jeremiah
