It is a very common problem for Sprites to have worn, loose and sloppy feeling pedals. Unfortunately just replacing the pivot bolt doesn't take up all the play, as after almost 60 years of use the bushes are usually very worn. Until now they have been unavailable but we are offering a direct replacement which requires two bushes per pedal.
Two bushes are required for the brake pedal and two are required for the clutch pedal, I have included photos of the new two part bushes compared to the original type, they are a direct replacement for the original bush. It is recommended you replace the bolt at the same time which is available separately part number 2A5568.
Please note the pedal assembly, bolt pictured and original bushes are not included, the listing is for four oil filled bronze bushes only.
It is recommended these are installed with a press or using a vice. Using a hammer will damage the bushes and cause the bolt to bind.
If your master cylinder push rod hole is also worn you can send us your pedal assembly and we can fix the worn holes, replace the bushes and paint them if required. Please contact us for prices.
