This is my brake pedal support. You can see that the hole is pretty beat on this side. I have seen repair kits for sale and was wondering if anyone had any experience with them. Would it properly correct this?
Appreciate any guidance you might have.

I upgraded to a roller pivot shaft bearing set that’s designed as a repair kit for worn Teflon bushings in the pedal support. However the opening in mine was not as bad as this one. Very happy with the change. Clutch is much tighter and smoother and no noise at all.

Damaged from the shaft and missing the aluminum insert....... you'll need to roller upgrade that support to save it.

I did Mustang Steve’s roller bearing upgrade and it works better than sliced bread! It did require some welding and am very pleased with the new setup.

Thanks for the input everyone. I thought it was pretty fried. I will look into the roller deal and move forward.

I bought a pedal support form ebay that has supposedly been rebuilt. When I got it, the pivot hole looked something like the one in your photo, the only difference was my ebay pedal support had black paint on it. I used the Mustang Steve kit to rebuild the pivot. It's as smooth as silk now. The Mustang Steve kit imo, is a better solution than the Scott Drake kit. The drake kit requires lube and the Mustang Steve kit uses sealed bearings.
