Foot Lifter Conversion

A knee lifter does not work well for me due to my size. My Consew was originally a pedal lifter when I purchased it. I took it to the mechanic to be checked out and he converted it to a knee lifter. Now I want to go back. I already have the pedal and chai. What do I need for the back? I know he took something off but can't recall what. Plus he didn't give it back to me either and I never asked. I've already removed the knee lifter hardware.

You are missing the lifting rod, the lifting rod collar, the knee lift connecting lever, the spring, and the hinge screw. If you're going to use a chain and pedal, all you need is the connecting lever and the hinge screw.

I have all that stuff. So where do I hook the chain up to?

The rod pushes that up to raise the foot. You need to connect it so that pulling down with the chain raises the foot. You need to connect it on the other end of the connecting lever, don't you?

That's what I thought too. But if I recall, there was some sort of extension on that so ithe chain would not get in the way of the work area.

That could be, but each individual machine would be different, you're not going to find a Consew part to do what you want. I think you're going to have to fabricate something on your own.

That's just what I thought as well. I did some research and some phone calls - nothing. So I'm going to make my own.

Thanks for the input.
