The other advantage to this method is once you've trimmed the 2X4 to the right length to press the brake pedal it will be the correct length to use as a cruise control going to Moab, too. For you 80 drivers, this $1 piece of wood substitutes for the $500 button on your steering wheel and the complex system on your engine.

The new parts are in and the system is bled. I lucked out and had a nice "warm" day to work on it. Seems to be working well except now the clutch is engaging later, towards the top of the pedal release. I need to go back and tweak the clutch free play and distance I think.

Sound about right on the clutch rod. Good job!

Thanks! My first MiniTruck repair.

The seized parking brake bell cranks don't count since those were identical to the set I did on my FJ60.
