Teleflex Adjustable Brake/Throttle Pedal Adjustment

Our 2008 Contessa has adjustable brake and throttle pedals. Since purchasing the coach, I have found that even with the pedals all the way back, the throttle pedal is quite far away and I have to stretch to reach it. I am 5' 11" and don't have particularly short legs. I crawled under the dash and found that both pedals are moved by what appears to be individual acme screws that turn to move each pedal in and out. With the brake pedal all the way out on the cylinder, the throttle pedal appears it could come out another 2" but is stopped because the brake pedal has reached the limit of travel. Is there an adjustment that can be made?

I answered this on the Beaver forum. Did you see my reply? I hope it helps.

Yes, thank you. I did see your post but could not find the wires going the adjustment motors. It appears they may be behind the firewall. I thought someone may have experience on how to remove the end And turn the Acme screw.

Sorry Skipper, it looks like I was wrong.
I looked at the mechanism before I posted on the Beaver forum and it "looked like" each pedal had its own motor (note the motor and plug on the right side). So I suggested you could unplug one motor and operate the switch to move the other pedal where you wanted it, then plug the motor back in and both pedals would then move together (as it uses one rocker switch to control both pedals).

But just now, I took a photo and now I see something different -- There is only the one motor and there is a cable that runs from the throttle pedal adjuster mechanism to the brake pedal adjuster mechanism - so one motor controls both pedals.

The only way I can see to change the alignment or relationship of the pedals to each other would be to disengage the cable from one pedal then move the other pedal (with the rocker switch) as desired. I'm not sure how to disengage that cable. I will search around for instructions on this - and post back if I find anything.
