Afternoon :-)

Does anybody have a brake push rod spare that they would be willing to part with? The little adjustable dohickey between brake pedal and master cylinder.  Happy to contribute to your favourite beer fund.

Thanks for any help, Sam

Hi Flags. Didn't know there were two types. How do I know the difference?

early ones have a single hole that fits on a pin, later ones have a fork that fit either side of a bracket on the pedal shaft with a pin through.
 the early pedals are cast later pressed steel.

Thanks guys. I did try to work it out myself but Google wasn't much use. My bug is '70, including the pedals. They're definitely not cast. I recon I need the late style in Flags' photo.

a high price but this is the one. guess as they do not wear out or break it is a limited sale item in very low numbers.

I've got 1 for you but the lock nut is missing.
If you do a Google search for m10 fine thread half nut they are under a quid.
Email your address and I'll get it in the post.
