A: Determine Position for Accelerator Floor Assembly and Best Cable Housing Path
It’s generally better to mount the Accelerator Floor Assembly, AFA further up the vehicle’s accelerator pedal. This way, the cable will be pulling the pedal down closer to pivot point of the vehicles accelerator pedal. Pulling low on the vehicles accelerator will cause a long stroke on the dual controls accelerator.
The , clamp block, CB is used to attach the cable to the accelerator pedal. One or two holes will need to be drilled into the accelerator pedal. One drilled hole is sufficient if pulling close to the edge as shown in (fig. 1). For a two hole installation, the cable goes through the CB , up through one of the drilled holes, loops around, goes down through the other drilled hole and goes again into the CB where the set screw will clamp it secure.
If the AFA is placed under the pedal will it interfere with stroke of the vehicles accelerator? If so, the AFA will need to be moved to the side as shown in (fig. 1).
Determine if it’s going to be better to run the accelerators cable housing under the main unit as shown in (fig. 1) or over the top as shown in (fig. 2).
B: Subassembly of Accelerator Parts onto the Main Unit
Remove bolt from the brake end of the pivot shaft and discard. Fasten accelerator pedal using the large flat washer and threaded hole on the right side of the pivot shaft .
If the cable housing is going to be run over the top of the main unit, the passenger side pulley block will have to be removed from the accelerator plate, flipped around and refastened.
Remove the simple pulley block nut . Place external tooth lock washer over threaded stud (found in bag with accelerator cable). Place accelerator plate and pulley assembly over threaded stud, rotate to the desired position, affix and tighten the simple pulley block nut.
Pull the accelerator O rink off the kits accelerator pedal, put on the thimble end of the accelerator cable and replace the O Rink.
C: Mount the Accelerator Floor Assembly
The AFA can be fastened to the vehicles metal floor board using screws, however due to the comparatively minimum force needed to move the vehicles accelerator pedal there are two simpler options you may want to consider.
If the carpet is tough enough the AFA can be secured to it. Make an approximate ¾ inch slit into the carpet. Remove the L strips from the AFA . Insert the wing of one L strip into the slit and insert the wing of the other L strip in the opposite direction. Reassemble the AFA with the wings of the L strips kept underneath the carpet.
A metal strip can be fastened to the vehicle in an easy location, possibly using an existing stud. The end of this strip would have the AFA attached to it and would be located at the desired position for pulling the vehicle accelerator pedal down. The longer the distance between the AFA and the anchor point of the strip, the larger the thickness and width of the strip needs to be.
D: Complete Final Assembly
The cable housing, CH will have to be fit between the Passenger Side Pulley Block and the driver side AFA . The CH will have to be cut to the length needed. When determining the length of the CH leave 1/2 of an inch to go into each pulley block. Make sure the CH is not cut too short. It should be well seated into the hole at each end without being stretched. It is better the CH is a little longer than too short. Cut the CH using the same procedure as the Main Unit.
Drill holes in the vehicles accelerator pedal, route the cable accordingly and secure the end by tightening the set screw of the clamp block .
