also started on the gas pedal . the original 83 was toast .. as with most of them the hinge that mounted to the floor was rusted and beyond repair .. I didnt want to use another "floor mounted " pedal ... so I made my own
heres where I started

the bolt patterns are different and positioning is also way different , so they are NOT interchangeable .

I started by cutting the pins off of both pedals ..
first I cut off the /83 pin and welded it to the 2000 shaft .

then for the tension spring I used the post fron the 2000 , drilled a hole for the spring , and welded it to the /83 bracket .. sand blasted and started to put it back together .

put some zinc , and then some color and mounted ..

I had to drill new holes for the throttle cable and will weld up the old ones when the cab comes off for final welding and engine bay paint
