<font size="2">Don't you hate it when you're putting your car back together and you end up with extra pieces!?!</font>
<font size="2">The car had been completely disassembled to be stripped and painted and we just dropped the engine and transmission back in yesterday. We're hooking up the transmission linkages and brake cables etc. that runalong the floor and there's one little extra metal piece that we can't figure out</font>
<font size="2">where it goes. Things got a bit shuffled around when we painted all the little parts. The mystery</font>
<font size="2">piece is just a flat piece of 1/8" thick steel with one bolt hole in it. It would be a rectangle measuring 1 3/8" by 1 11/16" except that onesignificant portion of one corner is cut off so that</font>
<font size="2">now it is a pentagon. I have a vague recollection of taking it off somewhere. Seems as if it would have a purpose similar tothat littlemetal plate that holds the end of the shaft thatall the </font>
<font size="2">pedalspivet around. I would think it has something to do with pedals or brakes or transmission</font>
<font size="2">linkage, butit could have come from anywhere in the car. We took every part of the window assembly out to paint it, but there is only one of the mystery part not two. Who can solve this</font>
<font size="2">mystery?</font>

I'm not at a location where I can take a photo or post it. But just
imagine a 1/8" thick steel rectangle with a hole in the middle and a
corner cut off. Rectangle measures 1 3/8" by 1 11/16"
Hole is probably 3/8" or so. It's probably the one piece that holds
the whole car together.

Thank you for your answer! We already have the clutch cable secured in
in the mounting bracket (part 2-15-19) but that bracket has two holes
and we're only using one. I think the mystery part could bolt into the
second hole and perhaps press along side the nut on the clutch cable to
keep it from turning while you are tightening it, but I don't see the
mystery part listed on the Amphicar parts manual diagrams. I don't
know how many parts aren't listed on those diagrams but they seem pretty
complete.

Now I only wish I hadn't busted one of my front wheel cylinders today.
I thought that if I tighened the front brake hose into the wheel
cylinder just a tiny bit more I could get the kink out of the hose,
since the upper end was threaded into that brass fitting that lies
flat against that fitting that goes through the inner wheel well.
But SNAP and it broke off! Considering swapping it with the lower
cylinder that just has a bleeder plug, replacing the bleeder plug
with a fitting that has threads that go deepeer than the crack,
then tapping that other fitting to take a plug and having the cracked
wheel cylinder welded. Not thrilled about that solution, but new
wheel cylinders are so expensive. Anyone found a cheaper source? The
guy at the foreign auto parts store said he's never seen anything like
that front Amphicar wheel cylinder.
