Guys,
I love this forum. Thanks for all of your previous help. Could anyone post some pics of your S&S drivers seat location. The PO reinstalled the seat and i think he had it to far to the center. No lined up with the steering wheel at all. Im thinking it should be closer to the side but wondering just how close as it seems it would interfere with the throtle if to close. Also in not sure if the seat bracket is original. It is all aluminum sitting on a fiberglass mount. It is adjustable front to back only. Wish it would swivel :)

Thanks for the help.

My drivers seat is not centered on the steering wheel. It just touches the starboard coming pad. It only adjusts fore and aft.

See Mine is left of center and a good 3" off the pad/side

Mine's also not centered perfectly. Stays fairly close to the pad on the side. I have more walk through room that the picture above me if I remember right. Here's a bad angle of it:

Never were a swivel. If you ride sitting on top of the seat the screws will sometimes pop out of the floor. If it had to be moved anyway it might have been shifted to center to improve balance when towing with no (or a light) observer.

Also, if someone short is driving my seat may interfere with the throttle hitting wide open in reverse. In this instance, you might need to set the choke in forward prior to pulling the neutral pin when you're ready to start up.
