I have the '84 jeep MC. I didn't have to do any pedal mods specifically to accommodate the MC itself.
I did do the mod to shorten the brake pdeal arm as recommended in the FFR manual that essentially gives you better leverage. I also bent an "S" into the brake and clutch pedal arms to move them away from the gas pedal. If you leave them stock it can be difficult to squeeze your foot between the footbox and the brake pedal to push the gas. The problem this creates for people is hitting both the brake and the gas instead of just the gas.
When you bent your brake pedal, did you heat it first or did you do it cold? How big of a kink did you put in it to clear the gas? I'm thinking if you do this in a vise you're only gonna get one shot to get it right.
OR... if you are using the Finishline AC pedals, just attach them to one side or the other of the pedal arm instead of cutting the slot down the middle of the pedal. you can gain around 1/4-1/2" just this way, no bending needed.
I did it cold. Locked it in the bench vise and used a BFH. Not an easy task. Although I suspect heating it would be a much more humane way to go about it. I beleive in the end the "S" moved the brake pedal about 1" to 1.5". The clutch pdeal arm is easier (thinner matieral) although it turned out I didn't have to move it as much as the brake. I used AC pedals but with the standard mount. Guess I must have a wide foot but it appeared at the time that mounting the AC pedal on the side alone wouldn't have given me enough extra space.
