Just compare it to a clutch pedal... if it's visibly thicker then it's a disc pedal.

I've got unservoed s disks with a drum pedal and they are fine. They are your textbook mini brakes in fact.

Ditto, bog std S discs and cylinders, no servo, drum type pedal and mine lock up with reasonable right foot effort. If you can get your car to lock up, how much more do you need ?? I've just hammered it round Aintree, absolutely flat out and very heavy on the brakes. No problemo.

The angle on the pedal cannot possible alter the "feel" or the "effort" The only thing that can, is the length between the two holes, clevis pin-> brake pedal shaft, and the length of the pedal itself.

ive always thought that the cooper s pedal was angled so that when its pressed and its working, its at the right height for 'heel & toeing'

if you use a drum brake pedal its further down, so its harder to dance the pedals

I also use one foot on both pedals and it's fine.

Perhaps it has been swapped.
