    Hello, did someone use cylinders Cleveland 10-35 ? I have bought a full kit with wheels and brakes that came with the 10-35. The problem is that they are too large and I dont know how to make them fit. Even by moving them inboard and forward they touch the pedal or the rudder cable.

    I used the Gerdes master cylinders, which are similar in size, but converted my SA-100 to Cessna pedals, to work with them? Not sure as I am not an Acro Sport guy, but it seems to me that there would be more than enough room in the Acro Sport? Neil would be the guy to chime in, as he is the the man when it comes to your airplane. Dave

    The Cleveland 10-19 is called out on the plans. It uses the remote reservoir.
    I moved my rudder pedal as far forward as I could and it left little space for the master cylinders and since I had a set of Tri-Pacer drum brakes and heal brake master cylinders, I used them. As designed, there isn't a lot of room beside the front seat and the Cessna pedals might cause a bit of a rub with the passenger. It is possible to rout the rudder cables on the outside of the fuselage tubing and slightly modify the pedals so that more room is provided next to the passenger.

    This is my pedal. I could have easily moved the vertical member of the pedal outboard and not had the long bushing stock extending out for the cable attachment.

    Thank you for your solutions. That gave me an idea that seems to work. With a diagonal I can move the cylinder more inboard and a longer attachment compensates the larger cylinder diameter. The pedal can run about 42 degrees forward and even more backward. That is sufficient for the 32 degrees of the rudder that has even a smaller horn. That leaves enough space between the cylinder and the rudder cable plate. I hope this is resistant enough.
