Accelerator and Brake Pedal

I find the accelerator pedal to far away and the break to close has anyone else felt this and did you do anything to change it.

Are you sure your Executive doesn't have a switch on the dash to move the pedals in and out?

Look for the pedals switch and move the pedals where you like them.

Moves both equally though. You can get the accelerator pedal closer, but your brake pedal is coming with it.

When I first got my Windsor I took quite a while to get the pedals set correctly so I didnít keep hitting the brake and gas pedal at same time.. yes I found it annoying and kept adjusting the pedals and my foot placement till it worked for me.
Mine are power operated so took a while of experimenting.

Not knowing when various manufacturers went from the floor mount , made me ask .
I relocated my floor mount throttle pedal, when I installed tiles in the driverís area , but brake pedal is ď set ď, through the floor.

When I went to take the air brake course, I mentioned to the instructor that I had hung, adjustable pedals. He told me there was no way I had air brakes, and asked if I wanted to quit the course there and then, and he would give me a refund.

I declined his offer !!

The pedals are hung and the in and out moves them both equally we have them full out (towards the drivers seat).

In fact I have to have the front of the drivers seat against the steering column to reach the pedals even somewhat comfortably. That causes me to have to move the drivers seat back to exit the drivers seat.

The difference between the two is over 4 inches so I have to lift my foot off the floor to press the break. I also have to stretch my leg almost to its full length to reach the accelerator.

When I can reach the accelerator the brake is so close to the drivers seat some times itís blocking getting my foot on the break pedal.

My DW basically can not drive because she can not reach the accelerator.

I was wondering if there was a manual adjustment per pedal.

Or if they can be moved to an offset in the rear to angle the pedals some.

I do admit I have short legs.

You could add an "extender" to the accelerator pedal. That would bring it out some while leaving the brake pedal in the same position. Once you get the accelerator-to-brake pedal relationship set, you can then move the assembly back and forth using the dash switch.

There are many types of pedal extenders available - for example https://www.amazon.com/Hooke-Road-He...BYTKSAKPEXSAN5

I just look at mine again the accelerator is actually about 3Ē to the right of the captains chair so I think is more of a left right issue not front back.

Would lowering the seat help at all .

Swivel seat pedestals available in three different heights.

Have it as low as it can go and the ped is the lowest they make.

I really is the left right location and I donít want to shift the seat that would put me off center of the steering wheel.

When I have some more time going to see if the entire mechanism can me shifted.

Does anyone know if the break pedal is electrical or air pipe valve.
