if you need one now, your best bet is probably to find a set of originals somewhere(i heard of some people having problems with the aftermarket ones but someone might want to chime in on that) and weld a tab from a set of f-body pedals on. The f-body pedals, if i remember correctly, actually had the tab welded on from the factory, so a die grinder and some patience, a little bit of welding, etc, you should be golden. I would give you the dimensions for where the stud should be in relation to the top pivot but there is no way i can get that pedal out of the car to measure. Anyone have one handy that can give some measurements? Also, make sure you fab up a pedal stop for yourself and some pedal to firewall bracing no matter which route you take so you don't run into clutch master cylinder and firewall flex problems.

SEVNT 9 reworked John's pedal due to geometry issues. He must have changed his photo host folders because the pictures don't resolve anymore.

The GSI pedal looks like John's.

Read about John Bzdel's swap from 2000. He has some good pictures of where to locate the master cylinder. There are some dimples (for screws) in the firewall to help locate where the hole should go.
