Chevette/Kadett Bias Pedal boxes For sale

Postby CR500Dom » 12 Jul 2007, 15:51

I may be selling my Bias Pedalboxes, One chevette/Kadette internal type, one Manta A series with cylinders in engine bay

The Kadett Chevette one is a Copy of the Ian Jemison one which relocates the Master cylinders inside under the Dash

Complete with Bias bar

Needs some final Fettling and finishing and the master cylinders of course but its ideal

I`ll get some pictures up when I can.

I also Have a Manta A series Bias pedal box that would fit if you wanted the Master cylinders in the engine bay, that should be complete with Cylinders as well.

My Exhaust manifold routing and PAS steering column (along with straightening the wheel/column) may mean I have to find a different solution hence the sale.

Offers please


Cheers
Dom

the more modern approach to bios boxes is to mount them on the front of the servo.

Agreed, but I have an Exhaust manifold and steering column to get in there on mine, and I have already taken out the standard pedalbox metalwork to fit the Jemison copy :shock: :oops: :roll:

I am probably going for a Willwood overhung reverse pedal box :D

Bit more work to fit but at least it should with the new column arrangement

Hi Kevin,

I need to have another look at it, it may still fit after all, I`ll keep you informed though....

Hello Galgeth

Have a look here to see what he means.

http://www.tjmotorsport.co.uk/proddetail.php?prod=PB13

Can be mounted onto the servo or bulkhead when servo is removed.

Which is great providing you have room for it, if you dont because of Exhaust or Carbs/throttlebodies then you need to go reverse mounted overhung like the one I am selling or Floor mount with a custom set up 8)

Ah so essentially what I was asking under this thread:

http://www.chevettes.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=12295

Could you add a remote servo if you wanted?

And does the pedal actuation have to be in a horizontal plane or could it be mounted up/down a bit to clear exhausts, carbs etc

I have just cut my battery tray out and before new metal goes back in I figured I ought to explore pedal box options first. Seems to me there is a load of wasted space where the battery is (my battery will be behind the passengers seat for better weight distribution.

If you use dual cylinders so you can alter the Bias (The main reson for doing it) you dont need a servo... :roll:

I think its a question for the brakes area not this thread

You need to work out what you want to acheive first, that will decide which route you have to take

thinking of doing this to my rally car as still on standard servo and master cylinder. Running m16 calipers on vented disk and manta drums so brakes feel somewhat dead!

the kit you sell - any idea what size mc i need? will end up going rear disks at some point as well.

I take it dual cylinders reduce the amount of effort required then on the basis the required fluid pressure is provided by two smaller cylinders as opposed to one large one?

the duel cylinders only allow bios adjustment without limiting the pressure in the rear line. the pedal effort is handled by the bore of the cylinders. this assumes you haven't changed the lever ratio for the pedal.

in theory one should adjust the bios if it's wet or dry and for tarmac and gravel. i suspect in practice it's something the works cars had and everyone had to have one, now they just leave it alone. indeed to be honest the volvo calipers and manta drums were good enough with the standard servo!

oh no i'm a fashion victim
