My rudder pedals are connected to the rudders via push rods. I think the pedals need to be adjusted. Anyone with experience adjusting the rudder push rods? There is a frame support that is stopping the travel when I go full left rudder. There should be more travel and I want to bring the pedals to the rear about 1/2" to allow for more travel.

I can see what looks like a nut on the push rod - can you loosen the nut at both ends and twist the push rod to adjust it? In a perfect world, one end would be a left handed thread and this would shorten the rod. Remember to tighten the nut up afterwards :)
