Spent an hour on this problem today.

Tested the switch and it seems to work.

While doing this, it seemed to me that it is difficult to push pedal as far as switch. So, it seems step one should be to make sure switch actuates when pedal is pushed!

I disconnected linkages and found that the firewall mounted bearing for the longitudinal shaft is badly worn. The shaft moves up and down 1/4" before it turns. The bearing seems to fit into a bracket, but not sure how. Does it just clip in? (I changed the other end bearing a little while back)

The foot switch seems from the parts diagrams, to be adjustable. How is it adjusted and/or removed? It has a hex on it, but I did not try turning it - want to be sure I don't break it!
