    For Sale FREE KF I stuff
    I have the following KF I stuff. If anybody wants any of it FREE, call or e mail me. Most of it doesn't weigh much, but size makes shipping prohibitive.
    I'm tired moving this stuff around, and if it isn't gone by Oct 31, it goes to recycling. You pay shipping or pick up.

    I  have a set of pedals and control sticks out of a B model. They were set up for cable brakes though.
    Incidentally the brake geometry on stock avids sucks anyhow.

    I got out to the airport today. I took a coup[le of pictures, but just now I am having computer issues and can't get them out of the camera.
    I compared the KF pedals to a set of Avid "B" model pedals I have. They are cable brake pedals.
    Here is what I found:
    1. The Avid lower tubes are 3/8 inch longer than the KF tubes. .18 7/8 vs:: 18 1/2 inches
    2. The KF pedals are 1/4 inch taller from the bottom of the bottom tube to the top of the rudder pedal: 7" vs:: 6 3/4
    3. The height to the top of the brake pedal is 9 1/2 in KF vs 9 3/4 inch Avid.
    4 The KF pedals are 1/4 inch wider outside pedal to pedal than the Avid
    5. i  put the KF pedals into an Avid "C" airframe I have and I did not see any interference issues. They fit onto the mounting pads but you will have to drill new holes in something. In the worst case scenario, you might have to make the mounting pads a bit wider, or fabricate new pivots. I do not know if this is a difference between KF and Avid, or the fact that the holes in your Avid are not necessarily in the same place as the holes in my Avid. AS I mentioned, I do not know the condition of the brake master cylinders. If you need more info, call me or e mail me. I will get a shipping quote Monday.

    I don't have the "B Avid pedals handy. When I go out to the airport tomorrow I'll grab them and take some photos for comparison.
    Compared with the "C' model pedals, the horizontal tube on the KF is 1/4 inch shorter than the Avid. The KF pedals are about 1/2 inch taller than the Avid.
    I could for sure make them work, but you might have to fabricate or modify brackets. I doubt they will bolt right up.
    The brake pedal geometry is definitely better on the KF. I do not know the condition of the cylinders. They appear to be old Matco, but they are not marked.
