Newc, does your foot pedal spoon arm have the ball link for a hand operated throttle control too ? I have been curious to locate clear photos of the linkage from the floor pedal up along the inside of the firewall to connect to the hand lever behind the dash panel. I know you have a 4-cylinder but I have also seen another '32 V8 with this same linkage. My '33 does not have that part, but my truck was converted from a 4 banger to a V8 long before I got it and the guy butchered up my linkage. Now I am trying to discover what set-up I can attempt to recreate. THANKS.

The presence of the ball on the side of the pedal shaft for the linkage rod to the bell crank attached to the foot of the instrument panel is unique to LHD '32s (first photo below) and absent on '33-'34 accelerator pedals (shown below in the second photo).

Alan,

In addition to the accelerator pedal differences between '32 and '33-'34, it gets a bit more complicated in '33-'34 where the differences between fours and V8s extend beyond just the accelerator cross shaft on the engine compartment side of the firewall.

The controls for the choke and throttle functions on '33-'34s equipped with four-cylinder engines are not rods directly or indirectly originating at the instrument panel or dash, unlike those for V8s, but rather are flexible cables or wires within outer spiral-wound steel conduits. Accordingly, they are attached to the dash or instrument panel in a fixed manner, as with the '32 controls, using a chrome or nickel-plated escutcheon held in place on the back of the panel with a lock washer and large hex nut. (As compared to the rubber grommets that the '33-'34 passenger car V8 control rods pass through.)

The '32-'34 four-cylinder choke cables are pretty well known as to their construction with there being only a difference in the length of the three versions (B, BB, and 46 prefixes, 34 1/4", 32 3/4", and 39 3/4", respectively.

The '33-'34 four-cylinder throttle cables are of the same construction as the early B '32 starter switch control cable and various '32-'34 RHD control cables, namely a single wire inside a spiral-wound steel conduit.

There is an extra arm on the cross shafts that pivots. The end of the wire core of the throttle control attaches to the outer end of the arm. Pulling out the throttle knob causes the wire to pull that arm toward the firewall and pushing in the knob releases the arm with the return spring on the cross shaft returning the shaft to its starting point. The '33-'34 passenger car four-cylinder throttle cross shaft is illustrated in the photo below. (The throttle control wire from the dash is not present, nor is the cover over the opening in the firewall between the accelerator pedal and the cross shaft.)

Ford carried over the knobs from '32 (except for adopting black colored knobs for commercial vehicles) for both fours and V8s for the '33s and only changing the shape of the knobs for the '34 V8 passenger cars, not for vehicles equipped with four-cylinder engines, which continued to have the carryover '32 knobs.

I have found that the V8 Ford Club books are invaluable for any work- Also 3rd Gen for correct parts. Newc

David, thank you for posting these pictures and your explanations. Your first picture in post #83 above shows that extra linkage from the pedal arm going up behind the dash .... can you provide another picture showing how that link connects to the pull out knob ??

Your truck is looking great. I have built 4 32 pickups but I have a short memory as I could never fit in them very good. I need to be about 4 inches shorter and 50 lbs. lighter. That being said I am considering buying another that is done.
