  • S13/S14 Clutch pedal interchangeability

    A friend is trying to collect parts for a 5-speed swap for her '98 Kouki. I've got an S13 clutch pedal but I don't know if they're interchangeable. ?

    Never tried it but I wanted to mention looking at the over-center spring hole. It helps the pedal work if you fix the hole/turned slot where the spring pivots. The plastic is always gone and many times the pedal won't even return freely. Just weld the new slot up and make it narrow enough that the spring just fits. If the slot is wide, the spring slides up and down and makes the pedal jumpy at the transition from helping push down to helping pull up. There is a pic on here somewhere. I have fixed numerous pedals this way.

      Thanks for the info. FYI, I fixed mine with a screen door spring. ;-)

          You can use the S13 clutch pedal assembly, but you will need to make a spacer to fit between the pedal assembly and the firewall. IIRC it needs to be about 1" thick and will need three holes in the correct locations for the master cylinder and the two mounting studs to pass through. I'll see if I can find a pic if the one I made when I get home.

            Sure you did. That only pulls one way so you are making the pedal stiffer than it needs to be. Hope you don't have a Competition Clutch clutch. Those things have the heaviest pedal I have ever had in anything. Logging trucks have easier pedals and it doesn't matter which clutch since all of their pressure plates are the same for an SR. I will never buy another one.

            It is a ten minute fix once the pedal is out to do it right.

              I used a tiny linear spring - adds maybe 1 lb to the clutch pedal pressure. I can't remember if I still have the original spring or not. I think I ditched it. But mine looked to be in there securely. It would just "wind up" in the initial slack pedal movement. It looked like it had been plastically deformed at its travel limit so it wasn't the proper shape to me, but it's been a while since I "fixed" mine.

                Well, I'll pay for it but you gotta go get it! PM me with how fancy of a case it's gonna be.
