I looked carefully at the pictures.

I saw a drum brake pedal hanger and drum brake, brake pedal.

It would be a decent price if this were for a disc brake set up, but that is just my opinion.

How can you tell the difference? More importantly, how can I be sure my previously frankensteined car has the right ones for disc brakes & auto trans?
That is the carcheaology part of my job. We have most all pedal configurations, that I recently sorted.

Drum brake pedal hangers have 4 nutserts on the portion that mounts to the firewall. A disc brake hanger will only have one. The 3 studs from your brake booster pass through the firewall and the pedal hanger. The booster nuts attach from under the dash.

Disc brake pedals are longer and attach much higher up on the pedal support. This manual drum brake pedal pivots on the clutch shaft.

Thanks Scott. I must have the right one. From your description, it sounds like it's not possible to install the booster to a drum brake pedal hanger - at least not without removing nutserts.
