Hi, Does anybody have a picture or drawing of anEW350 rear brake pedal. And does anybody know if there were any changes made for different years.
Many thanks, Colin.

It kept the same part number through 1929, so likely there were no changes.

Not sure if I can sort you out a photo, as my frame is rather inaccessible at the moment.

Thanks Doug. Do you know if the Sports Model is the same as the Touring Model.
                    There is one advertised on E bay UK but I am not sure if it is correct.
                    Regards Colin.

Colin,

You mean the eBay listing 201579670900? Does not look anything like an EW brake pedal.

I am not sure what a touring model would be. Often this was a euphemism for a model with foot boards rather than footpegs, larger section tyres, or a colonial model build a little more heavily than the standard model. So the first touring EW could be the B28 (A28 had footpegs) or the H3, and heavy flywheel version with sump in 1930.

I did once see what was purported to be an EW Deluxe, gold lining on the tank panels and deep section mudguards. So not everything necessarily made it in the catalog.

The Sports certainly did. Its distinction over the Standard EW was aluminum pistons, specially tuned engine(!), drop handlebars, twist grip throttle, steering damper, and road tested to yield 65mph. I have been told the Sports was the first 350EW to get the detachable head, though the first mention of it in the general catalog is with the B28.

You missed the bit at the end: "May also fit a Brough."

I just love ebay.

Well I do not know anything about Brough, so I could not make a comment about that bit. Caveat Emptor

In reference to the picture above, my B29 has the same type of brake rod and pedal, but also has a large knurled nut on one side and two small nuts on the other side of the threaded rod.  My question is how does all this work?  Specifically how does the part that the threaded rod fits into work?  Mine has no threading and the rod simply goes through it and is held in place by the knurled nut and two small nuts.
