1. Begin by removing the PMB pivot bolt that holds the cam plate onto the shaft
[Step 1]. You will need two 9/16-inch wrenches to do this. Remove the cam
plate, spring, and hardware. Pot cartridge removal is next.
2. Next remove the screws attaching the PMB spring bracket [Step 2]. Once
this is removed, loosen the screws holding the pot cartridge as shown in
steps 3 and 4.
3. With the pot cartridge free of the unit, slide the connectors off the pot
terminals. Next loosen the set screws that attach the pot follower arms to the
pot shafts [Figure 29]. There are two screws per pot. Next slide them off the
pot shafts. Using a 1/2-inch wrench remove the retaining nuts and washers.
4. Put the new pots through the pot mounting holes in the pot cartridge. Turn
the pots until the pots are in the positions illustrated in Figure 18 and the
locating pins are in their respective slots. Attach the pots using the nuts and
washers. Tighten with the 1/2-inch wrench.
5. Slide the pot follower arms onto the pot shafts but do not tighten the set
screws. Note that the pot arms are not all the same, the arm for the PMB pot
is shorter than the others. Also push the pot arm further down the shaft on
the PMB pot only. This is needed to clear the PMB cam plate. The wire
connectors can now be relocated onto the pot terminals. Match them
according to the jacket color / pot terminal information shown in Figure 18.
6. Reinsert the pot cartridge by reversing the removal steps. Then making sure
the PMB pot arm is engaged in the proper slot, mount the PMB cam plate
and tighten down. Setup is next
PEDAL POT SETUP - USB HD ULTRA
1. Pedal pots are setup using the Windows Game Controllers calibration
routine. Reconnect all cables, making sure the ground cable is properly
attached and start the computer. Go to Control Panel and select Game
Controllers from the menu. The Game Controllers dialog box should appear
showing the ECCI HI-DEF USB controller is connected. If this does not
appear recheck your connections.
2. Highlight the controller, and then click on the Properties button. Select the
Settings tab and click on Calibrate. Leave the controls untouched to set
center point then click a button on the wheel.
3. Move the wheel left and right, return to it to center, and Press a button.
Leave the wheel stationary and again click a button. The following steps
will apply to each of the three pedals in turn.
4. A horizontal box with a blue bar will appear. The first box will recognize the
gas pedal. Click the box next to Display raw data. Numbers will be
displayed for the pedal pot. Using a slender flat blade screwdriver or bit,
rotate the pot shaft in the gas pot follower arm. You will notice the numbers
will change. This is the method used to setup the static (at rest) position of
the pots before tightening them with the set screws.
6.4 PEDAL POT SETUP - USB HD ULTRA
5. Leaving the pedals at rest, turn the pot shaft to the following values for each
pedal. The max and min extremes of movement are 10 and 1013. It is useful
to turn the shaft just a bit past the point the number is reached to introduce
some movement tolerance. For example turning just past 1013 on the gas
pedal allows slight pedal movement before the numbers start downward.
raw data – 1013 at rest – 10 fully depressed
raw data – 1013 at rest – 10 fully depressed
raw data – 1013 at rest – +/- 250 (variable with PMB)
6. When your pot is set to the right position, use a hex key to tighten the
follower arm set screws. This locks the arm onto the pot shaft. Sometimes it
is necessary to hold the slotted pot shaft end with a screwdriver so it does
not rotate while the set screw is tightened. Test the range of raw numbers as
you depress and release the pedal. Make sure the readings match those
above. Then move on to the next pedal and repeat until finished.
When you finish all pedals you will end up at the Test screen. Check to be sure
that all pedals move fully from the top to the bottom of the colored bars. If a pedal
does not quite hit the end, you might need to add a bit more tolerance to the
static position of the pot. When all controls act reliably from end to end of travel,
you are finished.
The exterior surfaces of ECCI systems are powder coated steel with vinyl overlay
graphics. Use a moderately wet cloth with plain hot water for cleaning. If you
need to use a detergent, only use a diluted mild dishwashing liquid such as Dawn
for cleaning. DO NOT use dripping wet cloths or strong cleaning solvents, for
damage to electronic components and finishes may occur. NEVER use 409 or
similar household cleaners. 409 will quickly etch and ruin aluminum finishes.
Such damage is not covered under warranty.

secure. This is the most common source of faults. Also check the white pin
connectors on the circuit board for looseness. Sometimes installation and
handling can cause a loose terminal.
