Default Late beetle pedal assembly help

Hi all, it's been some time since I've posted on VZI but I have been slowly been rebuilding my Beetle (after a long absence).

I'm stuck on the rebuild of my pedal assembly (1972 1300) and I'm struggling to get details of what is missing. I believe I should have several aluminium bushes, is there anything else missing from the selection below?

Many thanks,
Adam

Thanks mate. The image on the Samba is much clearer than those I've found so far. Looks like I need multiple spacers (which I really don't remember).

I think I might need to buy another pedal assembly to salvage parts from!

It looks complete to me, apart from one small but thick(ish) washer which goes on the accelerator pedal rod at the point where it has 3 "crimps", this controls the side to side play in that rod. What are often described as "Spacers" are really just spring washers, fitted to help prevent excessive rattling.

Your pedal sets look lovely but I don't need another set

Image 9 is the pedal bushing, one in each end of the clutch and brake shaft assembly.
If worn, you'll have to remove and press the new metal bushes in place.
When I recently restored my pedal cluster, I had to purchased the correct new bushes from Oldskoolpartsshop

The clutch and brake metal bushes(image 9 in diagram), larger bushes in photo below, accelerator shaft bushes(image 7 in diagram), smaller bushes in photo below and nylon bush(image 32 in diagram).



My completed pedal cluster.

Number 9 are the bushes that fit in either end of the brake and clutch pedals
