PEDAL POWER PARTS LIST:
Drive Unit with 12" propeller & oil
Yoke (supports drive unit & attaches to main frame rails)
Main Frame Rail with inner leg extension
T-Handle Assembly for controlling leg extension
2 Outer Main Frame Star Knob Bolts
1 Adult Contoured Seat w/4 seat bolts
BEGIN BY ADDING OIL TO THE DRIVES: The drives are shipped without oil in the crankcase to prevent spillage during transportation. You will find a bottle of Royal Purple oil for each drive unit included with your order.
PROCEDURE TO ADD OIL:
Remove white plastic plug on the trailing edge of the drive unit by turning it COUNTER CLOCKWISE. Dispense the bottle of oil (1 - 6 ounce bottle for each drive) into opening using the provided applicator. Replace the white plug by turning it clockwise being careful to not cross thread.
The drive unit oil should last about 2,000 hours of use. 6 ounces of oil is the recommended amount of oil at all times but there is no danger if you add more than that.
Loosen the Extension Tube Release Knob 1 or 2 turns. DO NOT over loosen or knob will separate from the washer inside. Pull the extension tube (inner main frame) out about 12" to keep it from interferring with the drive unit installation.
THE DRIVE UNIT MOUNTS INTO THE YOKE AT THE MAIN FRAME EXTENSION TUBE.
* Place the black drive mount bushings (on the side of the drive unit) directly over the U-Shaped opening on the end of the yoke.
* Lower the drive unit until the bushings engage in the opening of the U-Shaped keyway. Gently push down & rotate the unit slowly bringing the drive unit up towards the seat. Slide the DRIVE HOLD DOWN LOCK forward & tighten to lock in place.
NOTE: It may be necessary to rock the drive slightly while continuing gentle dowward pressure to allow the bushing to work down into the bottom of the keyway.

ALWAYS: Remove drive unit when not in use for long periods of time. Keep the drive unit in an upright position to prevent oil leakage.
NEVER: Submerge past splash guard
Mount each seat: Place the 4 seat bolt brass washers/slide bars in the channel/track on the main frame. Working from the back, place seat on frame & align seat bolt through the seat & into brass washer and hand tighten. To adjust seat position, loosen the seat bolts & move the seat forward or back for comfort. Do not loosen too far or the bolt will disengage from brass washer which could result in the bolt dropping into water when in use. NOTE: A light spray of lubricant will help prevent any possible corrosion & make adjustment easier.
On SOLO (pedal power kit setup) setup, position the seat a few inches back of the main frame extension T-Knob.
On TWIN or LIMO setup, position the seat about 2" behind the main frame extension T-Knob. This will place the seats at the center of gravity & allow the boat to remain level during use. Fine tuning can be accomplished by moving seats fore or aft in small increments until it is level. Once the seats are in position, securely hand tighten the seat bolts.
LEG LENGTH ADJUSTMENT: CHILD UP TO LARGE ADULT:
Turn the knob on the main frame extension in front of the seat 1-2 turns. DO NOT loosen more as the knob will disengage from the brass slide that is inside the main frame. This will release the extension tube or inner main frame. To EXTEND the length, place your heel on the back of the pedal & push the drive unit assembly away from you. to SHORTEN the length, pull the extension tube straight back. Retighten the knob to lock the drive in place.
The proper leg length should be a few degrees short of full extension when the pedal is furthest from you. Fully extended pedalling could place unnecessary stress on your knees!
