Does anyone know if the LHD and RHD pedal boxes are different when doing a conversion to RHD?

Thanks for any assistance

Welcome to the forum, Joe!

To answer your question more helpfully, someone will obviously need to know which car model (including year) you're asking about. One way to answer those questions is to put them in your personal profile so they appear under your UserID every time you post. From one of the index screens (i.e. forum-list or message-list), select "My Control Center" and then "Change my Profile", then enter your car and engine data.

It is an early MGB, 62-67.

I believe that the actual pedal boxes are the same, it's the pedals and their shape that is different to allow for clearance with the narrower footwell on the right side. At least that's the case for the Midgets and I'm pretty sure that's correct for MGBs.

No difference at all except the throttle pedal which is cranked more to the left for RHD. You can still use the LHD pedal as I did and have no problems. A Paddy Hopkirk pedal plate makes it perfect for me. The placement of the dimmer switch on early RHD B's sucks so I wired in a latching headlight relay from a 240 Volvo so the flasher function of the turn signal a switch alterrnately dips and un-dips the headlamps when they are on and still functions as a headlamp flasher when they are off.
