Grabbed some pics today to better answer a question raised on Pistonheads regarding the master cylinder orientation on the car.
On the face of it, they would look to be the wrong way round, with the brake and clutch cylinders positioned in the opposite order from the pedals.
This is due to the limited space available on the outside of the engine bay due to the inner wheel arch.
I’ve also highlighted the throttle cable with the red arrow in the picture, this enters the cabin vertically above the pedals.
Here we have the pedals out of the car.
At the left hand side, the bracket with 4 bolts goes through the bulkhead and these bolts mount the master cylinders in the engine bay.
The clutch pedal attached directly to the piston rod from the clutch master cylinder. The clutch pedal rotates freely on its own.
The brake pedal is mounted on a rotating sleeve which actuates the brake master cylinder piston via the small lever at the far left, which also has the white plastic attachment for the brake switch on it and the return spring.
The accelerator pedal is also on a sleeve with the long lever connecting to the throttle cable underneath where it enters the cabin, so pressing the throttle pedal towards the bulkhead, move the lever down and pulls the throttle cable down vertically.
Clever way around the problem of mounting the master cylinders in the limited space available without ending up with massively offset pedals.
