Default Metal Clutch Quadrants

How many people want one as there has to be a decent amount of people interested before the company I have contacted deem it worth while to make them. Ball park cost is £20 each.

thats correct, i don't have one yet.

they are going to be good quality though, being designed on computers and everything aparently...

just trying to see how many people would actually want one.

Bryan_RST about 2 weeks hopefully.

I'd be interested is it going to be a exact copy of the original quadrant or will it be like the modified one that AP recommends? the reason i ask is that with the quadrant as it is the pedal was way too high on mine so i had to do the AP mod

Hope you know what im talking about

I want one. 20 Pounds sounds good. I'm afraid the shipping will cost me more. By the way are you willing to take care of that for me as I live in The Netherlands?

Maybe a good idea to make a list in this topic with peoples who like to order one. Everybody who wants to order as well just copys the list and adds his own name to it.
I'll also post a link to this topic in our previous broken quadrant topic to reach the people that might be following that.

Here it goes: (Micky didn't add your name to it because you wanted to see the quality. Please correct me if I'm wrong by adding your name to the list)

Yup thats right. I made a quadrant up specially for them but will probably get them to make a copy of the one that is in my car at the moment as its tried and tested.

How many people have managed to brake the ford one?!

I would bet good money that few cars have as heavy a clutch as mine, and get used so much in stop start traffic. The one i have was fitted over 6 years ago and is still going strong!

OK,Dave y Im very interested in one and believe you when you say its top quality.It will be based on a modified quadrant you have supplied,yes???Can I ask you is this modified as per AP's website???Because I personally found that this mod makes the pedal sit way too high.I myself use a standard Mark 4 RST quadrant with the Mark 5 pedal,which when the bolt on the pedal is tightened up sit's at the perfect level,ie.. in line with the brake pedal.Sorry for all the questions,but Im sure you recognise all the different varients that have been mentioned on this Mark 5 pedal debate over the past few months.Best regards,Micky.

Micky, when using the Mk4 quadrant the mod won't be of any help in disengaging the clutch any better over the standard Mk4 pedal setup. The cable travel is bigger because of the Mk5 quadrant has a larger diameter. For a strange reason some cars NEED the larger diameter and some don't. When Dave makes up metal quadrants with the small Mk4 diameter a lot of people can't use it.

If you mount a Mk5 quadrant with 10 teeth chopped of the pedal can be adjusted in height with the bolt. The bolt isn't supposed to be tightened up, it's for adjustment. This way you can set the pedal at the exact height you want. Best to set it a tiny bit higher then the brake pedal.

But who's saying micky hasn't done it for the reliability side of it?

No teeth to strip this way!!

I'm not saying that it's wrong how he has done it. But it wouldn't help those people who need the larger diameter. It's the larger diameter that is recommended by AP and many of the AP clutches seem not to disengage properly with the standard diameter.

I'll take one,its only €30/£20!!!

Now about my set up.I have typed about this problem at lenght on the other thread all about quadrant failure.My clutch DID'NT disengauge with a Mk 4 pedal and MK4 quadrant,DID disengauge with a MK 5 pedal and modified(10 teeth cut off the end) Mk 5 quadrant,BUT the pedal sat miles too high.And that was with no frigging bolt in the pedal,if I fitted and turned the bolt the pedal went even higher!! So I now use a MK5 pedal with a MK4 quadrant and it works perfect AND sits at the correct height!!!So thats why I asked Dave y what quadrant is been used for the pattern,Im guessing MK 5 modified???So my next question is,how high will the clutch pedal sit????Regards,Micky

That's strange. I've done the AP mod as the AP website describes and the pedal can be adjusted perfectly with the bolt. With bolt almost out the pedal is on the floor and I can set it as high as I want. Works perfectly except for the snapping part.

Thats very odd!!

Daves ones will be the mk5 ones im 99.9% sure. If your pedal sits too high, try using a shorter bolt, as thats what pushes the quadrant to adjust

im running the mk5 pedal and quadrant modded as per the ap website and i can adjust mine so the clutch pedal sits level with the brake pedal and still engages gears fine, ive only done 200 miles since fitting it so im waiting for the quadrant to snap everytime i change gear

just make sure it is a cut down quadrant as per ap's site- i had one made up that was almost a half moon so to speak and the pedal sat far too high even with the bolt fully out.
i ground some off and now its about right-feels alot more solid aswell
