The two ears holds the pedal in place with a bolt that passes through backed out. It didn't have a nut and when the bolt vibrated half way out, the pedal was only supported by one ear putting too much pressure on it and it snapped the ear off.

BEWARE Make sure your bolts are secured that hold the pedal in place...stick your face under your front seat and look at em :)

The bolt backing out is the principal reason of the "ear" breaking off. The bolts originally had a "pal nut" installed on them. Later master cylinders had a AN clevis pin replacing the bolt. Drill out the threads on the bottom ear and replace the bolt with an AN Clevis pin. This is good cheap insurance. I don't have a parts drawing for the master cylinder at hand right now, but my J-3 parts manual has AN 393-57 written in.

That part that you need is very expensive if you can find a new one. It is better to get those bolts out before an ear breaks off. I had an ear welded back on but have the part in my spares and have never tried it to see if the weld will hold.

Turbo, I'd be inclined to tig your ear back on if you still have it and it's not distorted (clean break). much cheaper and a good weld will be plenty strong enough. jimmy

The parts illustration shows a nut and cotter on the bolt, but the threads of the AN3 bolt bottom out before there is enough sticking through to get a castle nut on...like Len says. Maybe a thin washer and cotter pin might fit. My threads are good so I hate to drill them out.
