Mine had no screw in the middle of the plate either.
Hole or no hole in the support (plate)?
Joe - the photo I posted are not OEM items...the floor bracket and throttle rod in the image are the items I reproduce. When I made the floor bracket, I did not include the center hole, yet all originals I have have that hole...and one had the self tapping screw actually installed...I believe it was out of my 04D Norwood 70Z. Much like Dave rationalized, I believe the center hold was used to fixture or fasten the floor bracket so an assembly line worker could install the nuts without having someone on the interior push it through and hold....but they likely found it took more time to install the center screw than to just have someone hold it for a couple of seconds....again, just a guess, as I've seen some original 70Zs that never had the center hold pierced or threaded in the floor toe board.
I’d guessed it was your part but I’d also guessed that Mark doesn’t have your part installed in his car...no hole there. I could be off in my guess about Mark’s photo, I’m sure he’ll chime in. I can see the bottom of my 70, I’ll see what I can see when next I am in that garage.
It seems to me that the hole should be in the support but not always the floor...one of the many body piercings done on the assembly line. Mine has the hole in the support and the body piercing but no screw.
I just looked at mine from underneath and it has a partial piercing from the interior, but it is not punched all the way through, so 'no hole' at the screw #4 location. I don't know if the support has a hole for the screw, or if the ball studs are welded on as I've never had the pedal off. '70 Norwood 04D
I have no hole in my plate and it's orig to the car.
Mine is like Buddy's. 04B Norwood car.
This is the new piece of crap. No way would it ever stay on the ball studs. Didn't even have the rubber for under it. Also pic of the original.
