- Pilot Directional Control Pedal Modifications -

      I extended the pilot-side directional control pedals forward for 6" more leg room. I welded new mounting brackets onto the front 1-1/2" frame tube, added a new cross tube and bought one additional pedal and linkage. I cut the bottom half off of the new pedal and mounted it in the original right pedal position. It is bolted to the same cross tube as the copilot's right pedal and connects with the original linkage to the bell crank, just as originally designed.
      I was able to use the same bell crank, mount and pedal linkages.
