Default Pedal assembly is fubar! Wiper motor is too!!

If you read my new how to on the removal of the pedals you will see my pedal assembly is pretty much fubar.
I need to unfubar it and get some repair in it.
Any suggestions?

I'm thinking of trying to find a piece of copper or brass pipe that size-ish and filling the rest of the gap with some jb or something of the sort and getting it back together. There is a rod that goes through that whole bracket and connects the clutch and brake pedals to ther respective pushrods.
Come spring I can go to a junkyard and pull some pedals, or order a new bracket from lmc.

copper pipe OD size
5/8"
3/4"
7/8"
1 1/8"
1 3/8"
1 1/2"
2 1/8"

ID will will be differant size due to wall thickness
4 differant wall thickness called; TYPE 'DWV', 'M', 'L', 'K'
copper is soft and brass is used more often for bushings
OD & ID on Brass pipe is about the same as galvanized and black carbon steel pipe, depending on the schedule (schedule = wall thickness on this type of pipe)

Thanks hoss.
The nice thing is, if I find a size that has the right ID and the OD is too big, this bracket is phucked anyway, so I will just go at it with a step drill or holesaw or something.
JB is going to be my friend today.

Updates.
Picture of what I did a few months ago to remedy the plastic bushing that hold the push rod on.
I put a hitch pin on the end of that to hold it all together.
Okay todays fix.
Hmm this oughta work
Fits the cross shaft quite well.
And with a bushing in there, it's damn near perfect.

I had to remove material to get that copper sleeve in there, started with a roto zip dremel tool type deal, broke two aluminum bits and then went at it by hand with a round file.
Got it all squeezed together.
(it looks pushed outta shape in the picture, but it's not.)
Then I went about laying in some quick set puddy junk, not sure how it's gonna hold. I'll test it tomorrow.
That was to fill the big hole in the back, which helped push the putty through to surround the bushing and get it all cozy in there.

Gotta upload more pics and then you can see my wiper motor..

Took the wiper motor apart and found this mess.
Magnet broke off the housing and rust flakes everywhere. I cleaned it and put it back together. I can't afford a new one right now.
Just hoping it works for a little.

let us know how the putty holds up
give it as much cure time as you can, I dont know what you used but a hair drier will help set the inside quicker in cold weather

Its some sort of jb weld stick type stuff.
It's gonna have 24 hours on it, then some jb or whatever is laying around the garage over top. Only has to last 15 weeks and it sure as heck can't get any worse than it was.

I never had this part of it out before. That smallest bushing you can replace while everything is in the truck. These top ones, not so much.
But the pedals are back in and connected, wiper motor too. Still have to get the column in and get the blades positioned.
Then I'm gonna get some more stuff crossed off the list, slow seat belt retactors, get the right fuses where they need to be, change up some wiring, ground cables etc..
