I am in the process of rebuilding my 69 FJ40. I am installing a 2001 Chevy 5.3 vortec drive by wire. I am have troubles placing the pedal. The brake pedal comes in contact with the huge drive by wire mechanism. Do any of you have this combo and if so, how did you mount the pedal?
thanks.

Sgirt,

I don't know if anyone on RS has a 5.3L Vortec in there 40 but have you tried over on IH8MUD.com? Both the 40s section and maybe the hardcore section (not sure if it qualifies for hardcore or not)?

I think Classic cruisers in Sadalia has a vortec kit they sell, not sure if it is the same model.

Thanks for the info. I haven't posted on Ih8mud yet. I will. On the 69 with the slot for the steering and small space for throttle pedal, I am a little stuck on mounting it.

Thanks.
