Coupling pedal rod lock-nut

For adjustment displace a cover, release a lock-nut (1) and rotate a rod for lysk (2).

Check and adjustment


Adjustment of a pedal is required only when replacing the main cylinder.

1. Check distance And from a pedal edge to a partition.
2. For adjustment release a nut and a bolt of a pusher. The clown providing movement of a pedal at rotation of a bolt has a bolt. After adjustment of a pedal tighten a nut. If the tag is applied on a bolt of a pedal, then it has to be located on one straight line with the cylinder and is turned from the cylinder.
3. On a part of cars additional adjustment which is provided with rotation of a rod of the main cylinder at the released lock-nut is provided.

It is not allowed to wrap a pusher to a limit. After adjustment be convinced that between a lock-nut and a pedal there is a gap. Otherwise the pusher will be bent.

Do not draw a pusher lock-nut in order to avoid failure of a carving.
