    Thanks for the remarks, now I need a few more hours with an instructor to get the feel back for it. Their all concerned with no rt. brakes, guess I should of installed those too. How is the supply of Piper master cyls. and shuttle valves to go to Piper optional brakes, I could make the pedal parts.
