Im finally getting round to the brake and clutch pedals, and I've noticed a difference between winch and non winch brake pedals,the winch model doesn't have the lower arm for the return spring,does anyone know how the spring fits to the lever or even post a picture for me.

mine actually ends in-3. I'll have to look into it. I'm not sure how the winch model pedal hooks up. my pedal might be from 3/4 ton.

Look in TM 10-1123 on page 69 figure 94. It shows the brake spring connected to the upper hole and angled down and back, but the image does not show where to connect the other end. This is in the clutch adjustment section.

Thanks for the info Oz,yes i can see that now,i have 2 of the orange manuals and only one shows that..!?

Hopefully someone with a winch version will post a picture of where the other end of the spring goes.

Yes, That would be helpful.

The only other thing to do would be to check the area of the cab bulkhead to see if it might be obvious where that thing hitches to.

Also I have found a few times in my old images during disassembly and pre-restoration inspection I have found an image that showed correct configuration. That all assumes however that the previous owner had it correct to begin with.

I checked both of my battery boxes. Neither have or have had that clip added. I would suggest checking the lower kick plate that bolts to the lower cab and see if there is a hole or clip near the pass through for the brake pedal. Mine is at the blasters so cannot check it. i could find nothing on the engine or transmission that would be acceptable, so probably somewhere on that lower panel

Cheers Oz,

Robert Stopka is going to check his to see what he has at the weekends checked my battery box and i don't have anything there either ,unfortunately my Command Car came in bits so im only now working out where things go and what im missing still..getting there slowly...

If anyone else has a winch truck i would be interested to see where the spring is located on their truck.

Very interesting about the winch vs non-winch brake pedals. I have a T-215 WC-21 frame serial #81523533. It is a non-winch frame yet the battery box did have the welded plate on it. I cut it off the box as I have a T-211 closed cab on the frame. All I can figure is that on the production line, they just installed it on the non-winch frame. The SNL G-657 master parts book does not list a seperate battery box for the winch and non-winch model 1/2 ton WC’s. We need a 1/2 ton guru to fill us in on this. :D

Yes its an interesting one thats for sure, and not many people seem to be aware theres a difference,once i get the engine and transmission back in the truck and attach the PTO it will probably be obvious why its done like this..
