I built my 601 from a kit in 1997.  The brakes were poor from the beginning and I am now doing an overhaul.  I have new calipers and discs but before I install them I decided to remove the rudder pedals and I  have them mocked up on the work bench.  It looks to me like I could improve on the geometry but before I "reinvent the wheel" could someone with a newer version share their drawings with me.  The rudder pedal drawing from my 1997 version in labeled 6.F.18.  I'm not too sure how discussions, blogs, etc. work so if it is easier my email address is jngmcnabb@gmailcom.

Think about dual calipers on each wheel.


I also changed brake pedal geometry... looking for drawing

Will this mount if you have Grove Brakes?

I tried the "intensifier kit" but just blew plastic brake line off.


The brake pedal geometry needed to be reworked.... still looking in files to find drawings
