A Carriage Works pedal kit is an aftermarket and complete set of automobile pedals. This kit includes the brake pedal, the clutch pedal, and the accelerator pedal. These pedals are used as interface for the foot of the driver. These pedals allow the driver to have direct control on the different aspects of automobile operations. By stepping on the clutch pedal, the driver can temporarily disengage the clutch, allowing smooth transition in gear drive. Stepping on the clutch pedal allows the transmission of engine output to be halted without stopping the engine. When the clutch pedal is pressed, a hydraulic mechanism disengages the transmission clutch from the flywheel of the engine. This enables the transmission differential gears to shift positions.
When the driver steps on the accelerator pedal, the rates fuel injection and air intake are increased. Consequently, the engine will deliver more power, speed and torque, thereby accelerating the vehicle. By stepping on the accelerator pedal, the throttle is also manipulated to allow greater amount of air to enter the combustion chamber. On the other hand, fuel injection is increased by allowing the intake valves to increase their rate of motion. Thus, accelerating the vehicle involves two aspects. Air volume and the amount of fuel are the two crucial aspects of acceleration. Along with increasing the fuel injection and air intake, the rate of sparkplug firing is also important.
An automobile has great inertia, owing to its mass. It requires large amount of energy for it to run. On the other hand, when the automobile is already in motion, it also requires great force to stop it abruptly. When the driver step on the brake pedal, the hydraulic brake mechanism multiply the muscle input several times. Braking involves great amount of compressive force and friction. All of the automobile pedals are crucial in controlling an automobile. Here at Parts Train, we offer high quality pedal kits for different types of vehicles.
