I have a new Univair fuselage, and new front seat frame. I've done a test installation of my refurbished controls, including brakes, and pedals. However, the rear rudder pedals hit the upper part of the front seat front frame legs. (The left side of the top of the rudder pedal "t" bar). I don't know if that is normal or not. In other words, the frame legs act as hard stops for the rear rudder pedals after they go a few degrees past vertical. I'll get out to the airport and look at another cub, but any info or thoughts from you folks would be welcome. I don't remember what the clearance was like on the old fuselage before I took everything apart. I do know that the rear pedals were not installed correctly.

I also put the old seat frame into the current configurationk, and it has the same hard-stop function as the new seat frame.

Thanks ahead of time.
