Adjustable Clutch Banjos $23.00

 

Adjustable Fiero Clutch Pedal Banjos

The clutch pedal on a Fiero should stick up about one inch higher than the brake pedal. If your clutch pedal is slightly bent, or you are looking to maximize the slave rod extension for a better clutch release, you may be able to do so with an adjustable banjo. I have also seen some aftermarket clutch master cylinder assemblies that have slightly shorter banjos which produce a marked decrease in slave movement. These shorter banjos can actually increase the effects of clutch release problems. Early style (large pin) adjustable banjo with oilite bushing
 

Early style (large pin) adjustable banjo with oilite bushing

New design for the early style banjo. The OEM early style clutch pedals had the large diameter pin on the clutch pedal. They are metal on metal contact with the banjo. This translates into high wear, noise, rapid wear and looseness. My newly redesigned early style adjustable banjo now incorporates a pressed in oilite bushing.

The early style Fiero clutch pedal: These were aluminum or steel. These have a large pin that is about 1/2" in diameter where the banjo contacted the pin. See picture below. The early style Fiero OEM banjo has no bushing. It is steel on steel.

The late style Fiero clutch pedal: These were all steel. These have the smaller type pin that is about 3/8" in diameter and the OEM banjo has a black plastic bushing in it. See picture below.

  • Adjustable Clutch Banjo's for the smaller pedal bushing design include a new brass oilite bushing!!
  • Adjustable Clutch Banjo's for the large diameter pedal pin design now also includes a new brass oilite bushing!!
  • No more metal on metal contact which translates into high wear on both the banjo and the pin.

To install this adjustable banjo, you will need to remove the clutch master cylinder and take it aprt to install this new adjustable banjo. There is a snap ring that holds the banjo assembly in. You have to cut your old banjo in half to acquire the rubber boot which will be used on the replacement adjustable banjo assembly. The only way to get the boot off the original banjo is to cut the orignal banjo in half. It will tear if you try to pull it over one of the ends of the old banjo. A new conical washer is included.

 

There were two different types of clutch banjos used on the Fiero.

The first (early design) had a large diameter journal on the clutch pedal pin and no bushing (steel on steel), while later (late design) models used a smaller diameter journal on the clutch pedal pin and the factory banjo included a plastic bushing.

Adjustable banjo's for both designs are available.

Early style (large) banjo is on the bottom and the late style (small) banjo is on the top.  

A better picture. The early large banjo is on the left and the late small banjo is on the right.

 


If you have an early style clutch pedal with the old style large diameter pin the banjo attaches to you may want to consider upgrading it to the newer style small pin that uses the oilite bushing. There were 3 variations of the Fiero clutch pedals. The first design was aluminum but the U bracket riveted to it was steel and these clutch pedals had the large diameter pin with no bushing to the banjo. The large diameter pins tended to wear quickly as it was steel on steel with the banjo. The second design was a steel pedal but still retained the large diameter pin. The later and best quality pedal was steel and had the small diameter pin and the banjo had a plastic bushing. NOTE: Ed Parks feels the aluminum pedals never really seem to bend like many think. It is the steel U bracket that is riveted to the pedal that bends. The clutch pedal should sit about an inch above the brake pedal.

 

 

Helpful hint:  When a Fiero was new the clutch pedal sat about an inch above the brake pedal. If your pedal is bent you can loosen the nut and adjust the clutch pedal upwards to try and get to the 1" again. There is a limit to this. If the pedal is so severly bent you may not be able to get it back up to the 1" above the brake pedal again (Hint: the bending usually happenes in the U shaped part of the clutch pedal). Take the clutch pedal out and straighten it or install a new clutch pedal.

Final shipping cost is determined by weight of the item(s) and distance from Milwaukee, WI. Shipping prices quoted are for items shipped to the Midwest area in the USA.
