HA! good one John!


Drawing 38, view A-A, when the control column is mounted, note that the sticks in vertical position should be centered in the cut outs on the F904 carry through top flange. Also, if you temporarily put the seat floor panel in place, the stick should be centered as well. The crotch belt bracket, is there a offset 'Left' & 'Right' (possibly mixed up)?

Per plans, WD610 is used on all the side by side models, 6, 7 & 9
dimensions so you can check your weldment:
Control stick pivot holes- center to center 17 7/8"
the big tube length should be 16 3/4" between the welds

Hope this helps

says it all. When I first got in I somewhat instinctively set myself aligned to the rudder pedals and had never really paid attension to have far left the weldment is to the left seat. (Or conversely how far right the right weldment is).

Whats odd when I look at this is I see no potential interference now or later that would require VANS to set the pedals so far askew. The only thing that comes to mind is that this allows them to have the ears for the rudder cable line up with the cable attach point.

Is there something I'm missing as to why they would set the pedals so wide out? I'm going to re-watch zoolander until I get it.

Thanks
