Decent day today
--- After more measuring, some graph paper work with a compass and calculating angles, I determined that I needed to take 1-1/4" inch out of the top section of my steering shaft set up to get the right action. Ran it over to my friendly neighborhood machine shop and sure enough, they threw it on a lathe and took out the needed amount. Back to my shop and with a little welding...waalah! It appears to fit and work without binding.
Then got to work on my much modified brake pedal. It too now looks like it might do the job.
Here is the chopped steering shaft (one of two necessary).
Here it is all melted together (the welding would look better if I had the right grinder).
The brake pedal with the foot pad thingie cut off and the new parts. One store-bought, one hand made.
The new homemade pad mount welded on.
And with the nifty little billet aluminum, pad mounted.
...the tiny little space all this crap has to get crammed into. Next comes a homebuilt footwell/box to close everything in and keep my feet out of the rain. I will probably replace the magnet holding the steering shaft in place with something else before hitting the road.
