Replacing the “gas” pedal

For this project I’m using a hall effect accelerator pedal instead of the standard “pot box”.  The hall effect pedal is more robust both mechanically and electrically.  However, using it means I need to replace the entire pedal assembly. Here’s the original pedal:

Removing one screw and sliding the pedal straight up released it.

The new pedal need a spacer behind it so when it was fully depressed it would clear the floor. So I made a spacer out of some 3/4″ HDPE I had laying around. I drilled and tapped a couple holes and voila! A the new accelerator pedal is mounted:

I might try and find some carpet to fill in the hole left by the old pedal.
