After 10 years of a “temporary” solution, it’s been time to rework the pedalmount.
The current solution stopped the pedals from shifting side to side and back to front. But when I wanted to activate the wheelbrakes the whole thing tilted back.
While the simulator is disassembled anyway, I’ll use the change to rework the whole nosesection so it can be tucked away while working on other things.
The angle brackets that hold the pedals are already dismounted on the picture.
Specifications for the new mounting plate are:
- Pedals shall be mounted sturdily without any movement.
- Positioning of the pedals (front/back) shall be possible.
The old angle brackets are already mounted on the board to keep the pedals from moving left/right.
Both drawer runners will make the positioning possible and the 2 bars will be the new mounting plates.
Next step: mechanism to move the fixing-pin.
