    Pedal geometry is hugely important.  I too have dual calipers per wheel, but went through 3 pedals before i got it right.  First I didnt have enough brake, then I went to the other extreme and was able to lock them up while landing only using my mind.  the third iteration was around 2.8 to 1 and is perfect.

    Take the yellow leads off the Key West and remeasure the AC coming off the stator with the Key West disconnected to rule out a bad regulator pulling down the AC voltage.  My fingers are crossed for you.  I got lucky a while ago, similar symptoms and it was just a bad Key West regulator.

    I run AVGAS when I have to and notice perhaps a 25-50 degree F drop in EGT compared to the 90 octane ethanol-free gas I normally run.  I dont lose any sleep over running 100LL.  It is what it is.....

    I have the bushings on mine just 5/16 4130 tubing with a 1/4 i.d.,  Joey a thought about running a die on that rod end.  AN bolts and probably that rod end to have rolled threads, not cut. The threads are actually pressed into the bolt shank instead of cut with a die.  It makes the threaded portion less susceptable to breaking as it doesn't have a sharp valley but a rounded valley between the threads.  I read in my aircraft maint books that you shouldnt cut new threads with a die as it makes the bolt weak.  Perhaps the same is true for chasing the threads. FWIW....
