To create your own Sebring Sprite Pedal Box Assembly see diagram on PDF.
Brake and clutch pedals need to be extended above the main pivot - the dimension needing to be increased
from 1⅝ inches (41.5mm) to 2 inches (51mm) i.e between the centre of the pedal pivot point bushing hole and the centre of the actuating rod/clevis attachment hole. An additional piece of steel has to be welded on to each original pedal and then cut to shape.

Andrew Forster of Archers Garage is endeavouring to reproduce the original Girling Type 10 calipers (right) which are no longer available. He has been having difficulty getting the new castings machined but this work is now in hand and the finished article should be available around April/May 2011. Tel: 0121 520 4766
*An alternative caliper of similar appearance is that fitted to the rear of the Vauxhall Carlton Estate: part nos. BE1141 and BE1141R. Paul Webb has give me nos. BCA1752 and BCA1753 so they obviously go under different numbers with different motor factors. For caliper bracket drawing click here.
