Wilwood Pedal & Hand Brake Assemblies

Brake system performance begins with a pedal or leverage device that provides the operator with a comfortable effort requirement and confident, controlled response from the overall system. Wilwood offers brake pedals, hand levers, and master cylinder mounts in a variety of configurations to provide options that suit nearly every type of competition or custom built vehicle application.

Standard Pedals and Mounts

The Wilwood standard pedal group include all single cylinder mount clutch or brake pedals, and all multiple cylinder balance bar brake pedals and master cylinder mounts that utilize the traditional slide bearing balance bar adjuster to affect pressure differential changes between the front and rear circuits. The slide bearing balance bar provides excellent utility service for mechanical bias adjustment. When the balance bar bias is adjusted, the center pivot bearing moves laterally within the pedal arm to affect the load sharing ratio between each master cylinder and resulting pressure differentials.

Tru-Bar Pedals and Mounts – What is a Tru-Bar Balance Bar?

The Tru-Bar balance bar system represents the highest degrees of precision and durability in manual bias adjustment and control between two separate master cylinder circuits. Tru-Bar twin cylinder brake pedals and master cylinder mounts utilizes a fixed position trunnion bearing in the pedal arm. The Tru-Bar system eliminates all side play and adjustment slack. In addition to the trunnion bearing, each master cylinder pushrod is attached to the balance bar bolt with mono-ball rod ends. The balance bar and master cylinder rods end operate freely, but without play or slack, in this high response, precision system. Durability and response are further enhanced with a full 7/16”-20 thread and diameter bearing bar. The combination of precision movement and the slightly wider thread as compared to 3/8”-24 threaded balance bars, provides the fastest and most accurate adjustment of any balance bar system available.

BALANCE BAR TECH NOTE

All brake bias balance bars work best and most efficiently when part of a closely balanced system that allows the balance bar to be generally centered in its lateral adjustment position as a baseline static setting. Any vehicle requiring extreme adjustment on the balance to achieve acceptable deceleration control should be re-evaluated regarding the combination of master cylinder sizes and caliper piston bore volumes being used.

Wilwood Hand Brakes

Wilwood hand brake levers provide high leverage control for manual actuation of one or more brake calipers. Each handbrake lever is forged from a premium aluminum alloy with an integral and ergonomic full length hand grip. Each lever features an 11:1 ratio providing the operator with the ability to generate fast response with comfortable effort.

Single Cylinder Mount Hand Brakes

The single cylinder mount model can be used as either a stand-alone system with a dedicated, gravity fed fluid reservoir, or as a pass-thru system plumbed in serial in the pressure line from the foot controlled master cylinder. The single cylinder mount model can be used to actuate one or more calipers operating on a common fluid circuit. These type of hand brakes are well suited to dragsters for staging brakes or auxiliary stopping brakes, drift cars, and any application where the use or addition of a handbrake is desired. These brakes however should not be confused with a parking brake lever. They cannot be locked into position to hold static pressure on the brake system for parking purposes.

Dual-Cylinder Cutting Brakes

Cutting brakes, also known as steering brakes, incorporate a pair of integrally mounted ¾” bore master cylinders that can function independently to operate separate brake calipers within their common circuits. The system acts as a flow-thru design when the lever is not applied. This allows full pressure from the foot operated master cylinder to travel to both the left and right calipers on the axle(s) simultaneously. When the cutting brake lever is pushed or pulled, only the caliper connected to the cutting brake lever master cylinder that is being compressed will be actuated. This action is used to affect a change in vehicle direction by applying brakes on only one wheel or one side of the vehicle. Cutting brakes have wide spread use on off-road buggies and other competition vehicles where auxiliary steering capability through the use of individual wheel braking provides benefit through additional control capability by the operator.
