Jerome, thank you for your very competent response. You're right, every option for changing the pedal configuration is problematic. The hydrovac, unfortunately, is beyond my competence. I considered an under-floor mounting to the frame, but the frame layout makes that impractical. For a firewall mount, there are cables, acclerator linkage and, as you pointed out, ventilation in the way.
Does the Treadlevac offer adequate braking? You mentioned its small bore and long stroke. Is that how the designers compensated for the 1:1 pedal ratio?
