If you have problems with that 1/2 inch of the pedal being too far away,
there are fixes. Tom's Import Toys sells extenders although they raise the
pedal about 2 inches. I drilled additional holes so that my pedals (brake
and clutch) can be adjusted 1/2 inch, one inch one and one half inch and two
inches which will probably be needed as I grow older and shrink. At present,
I have raised both 1/2 inch and there is a wonderful difference.
There is also a direction on my site to make your own on the Miscellaneous
section of the Technical page.

John, Ray and all.
The pedal height (in a big Healey) is fixed by the length of the pushrod
from the master cylinder which, as you will know, tops out on the retaining
circlip. Fitting the crescent spacers between the master cylinder and the
bulkhead moves the master cylinder forward and lowers the pedal height. I
cannot imagine why anyone would retain these spacers. The pedals in a big
Healey are in my opinion at least 1/2" too far away to be comfortable and
moving them further away with these spacers would not be a good idea.
By the way because of the mechanical advantage, the spacer thickness causes
the pedal to lower by about three times the thickness!!
