Rudder Pedal Brace
The rudder Pedal sare held into the fuse by use of UMHV Blocks, one on each side of the fuse and one that acts as a center support. The center brace mounts to the firewall and holds the UMHV Block on the outside of the firewall angle. I drilled the block with the other two end blocks the other day, and now used a band saw to slice the middle block so it can wrap around the two tubes supporting the peddles.
I temporarilymounted the outer blocks and pedal assembly to help measure out my 3 locations to drill the center brace, drilled the holes, then cut down and lightened up the center brace.
