Classic Bug Parts has the proven solution to the problem with the hook-and-loop design of the old clutch pedal shaft and clutch cable on Classic Volkswagens, and it is available here for your ’52-’57 “Oval” Bugs.  On the original part there is constant wear on the clutch pedal shaft hook and on the loop of the cable end, as they pull against each other every time the clutch pedal is pressed in and out. As you likely know, the old hook and loop design is known to break over time.  This is a known safety issue that is fully resolved with this upgrade.

This upgrade eliminates the old hook-and-loop approach to clutch cable attachment, replacing it with a secure cable connection gliding on a brass sleeve over a durable chromoly pin.    This kit is similar in design to our other proven clutch pedal shaft upgrades and delivers long term dependability and superior performance.

This “Oval” Clutch Pedal Shaft Upgrade features a new 1018 steel clutch pedal shaft (with a sleek centerless-grind finish) providing strong clutch control.   A new precision-machined delrin bushing glides over the clutch shaft inside the brake sleeve (for alignment and grease retention), providing smooth pedal action while minimizing long-term wear.  The action will actually become smoother over time as the delrin bushing seats itself.  The far end of the clutch shaft rides on a second delrin bushing within the support bracket, which will also seat itself with use.  The result is  smooth and reliable clutch pedal action that will perform well for years while providing additional bragging rights.

Here is the Oval cluster after being rebuilt:  (note the upgraded clutch shaft’s crank arm at far right end)
