Default Brake Switch to Brake Pedal connection

My 1929 Phaeton is missing the link between the Brake Switch and the Brake Pedal. What do I need to buy to connect? Please send a picture of the connection between the Pedal and the Switch.

I made a simple solution with a motorcycle (rear)brake switch. Not original but works perfect.

Do you mean this? It's a stop light switch link.

If I remember correctly, the clevis pin that attaches the brake pedal lever to the short brake rod that operates the cross shaft is special. There is an extension post or head on the pin that has a notch in it, rather than the pan head of a normal clevis pin. The link shown in post #4 connects this post to the switch.


Yup- found it at brattons: https://www.brattons.com/28-july-29-...levis-pin.html

Looking at Sparly's picture, it should be easy enough to fabricate one out of an old wire coat hanger.
