to a different location.
The underside of the seat is not smooth and I cut about a quarter inch

I think if I were to do it again I would cover the area with JBWeld for
a tighter fit but mine has been done for a couple of years and I have
not had a problem with it.
The hardest part was marking the spot to re-rivit the locking pin.
I put the pin in the locking mechinism and used washers to raise it up.
I then put a cloth on the bottom of the plate with ink on the cloth and
pressed the seat into place so the ink would mark the bottom of the
Then drilled holes in the pan for the new pop rivets and re-riveted the
locking pin in the new location.
All in all a pretty simple process that took only about an hour.
