Default Clearance

Thanks. Yes I can see that clearance can be an issue to watch out for, I will consider a low profile soft locking up, no cotter pin.

If you are listed as the owner on Vans website, you can simply download the full plans without waiting for that thumb drive.

Default "per plans"

Note that the builder's manual allows to mount them so they are easy to bleed.

But it can be a tight fit.

I added a steel strip between the two alum angles that forms the "well" between your feet, to pull them together a bit and make sure that they could not be pressed out (in tension) to interfere with the brake cylinders.
