insert the spacer washers between the strut and the pedal frame as shown.
Turn finger tight, then back off one half turn.
Make sure the nuts holding the bottom end of the diagonal struts are backed
off a bit from contact so the rod assembly can mover freely in the slot. Grasp
the rod in the center of the base with one hand, grasp the top of the pedal
Frame with the other, and rotate the pedal frame upright sliding the rod in
the adjustment slot forward until the unit is at your preferred angle. Test the
pedals to see if their geometry is correct for your seating position. Adjust
until comfortable, and finally tighten all pivot bolt nuts. For more tips on
adjusting geometry, see Section 2.4.
BASIC PEDAL PRESSURE ADJUSTMENT
Pedal pressure for all non-PMB equipped pedals is done in two steps. Perform
adjustment in the following sequence:
1. Overall pedal pressure, has three settings: light, medium and heavy.
These are adjusted by changing the location of the pedal resistance spring
and its upper and lower mounts to one of three possible positions [Figure
17]. Moving the spring towards the pedal arm pivot point will reduce the
pressure needed to depress the pedal. Moving the spring away from the
pivot will increase the required pressure. Generally it is recommended that
the brake pedal be set in the medium or heavy; and the gas pedal in the light
or medium position.
2. Pedal spring preload is set by how far the screw supporting the lower
spring seat is turned in towards the spring. Preload is defined as the amount
of initial pressure needed to begin to move the pedal. To change preload,
loosen the locknut on the lower spring bracket and turn the set screw.
It may be advantageous to set preload at a moderate to high level if you like
to rest your foot on the pedal. If preload is too light one might be applying
brake with the slightest touch of the pedal. This is particularly a concern if
one uses a two foot pedal method. Try different settings but make sure to
tighten the lock nut to preserve your settings when finished with adjustment.
PMB BRAKE PEDAL PRESSURE ADJUSTMENT
The second generation ECCI PMB II (Pressure Modulated Brake) mechanism
has two basic adjustments:
Main PMB pressure adjustment screw [Figure 15]. This screw sets the
ultimate amount of pressure required to bring the brake pedal down to full
travel. This effect is highly progressive and this screw should only be used
for setting maximum braking pressure. Do not use this screw to adjust initial
The Pedal spring preload adjustment screw sets the amount of initial
pedal pressure required to begin to depress the pedal. It is set as described
in Section 2.2. Make sure to tighten the lock nut after adjustment.
