Any one have successs with installing the rebuild kit for their support?
I have visions of the new metal pieces being slightly loose and cawk-eyed as they are held in with snap rings instead of pressed like the originals. Also is there much of a PITA factor with installing the kit?
Thanks

Yes. I actually did it in a 4-speed '66 fastback and it worked well. Ran the car with the kit for 5 years and sold it with all still OK. Royal PITA to get the brake support out though and reinstalled.

Remove the one bolt holding the stop-pad, and bring the pedal all the way up. At that point, the spring doesn't need to be compressed. Push the pedal all the way to the floor and re-install the stop-pad.

As you got a 1966, the pedal support is the same automatic or stick. Just get an automatic (which never wear) and move all the stick shift parts over (pedals, spring, rebound, spring mount, etc. Takes about 5 minutes, including the $4 for the new plastic bushings.
