It will have to be chiseled free, the firewall reinforced and the replacement pedal tree welded into place, I have heard that some have just bolted them in but have never seen it done, everyone I've seen has been welded.

I thought maybe just go under dash and disconnect pin? then will have to drill a hole in firewall to accomadate rod for Clutch Fork??

You only have the tree for the automatic trans, pulling out the pin will only get you the brake pedal, the standard tree has to be installed.
