Ed, that would be it. Same position as a Johnson bar. I think they first were offered on the Forneys. It has a white square button on the end you use to set as a parking brake. I flew one set up like this back in 1962 when I got my private. As I remember they work very well. Any pointers you have on them would be appreciated. By the way, I got the paperwork on this setup from Univair.

Jack, I think that's the system installed in my 415C - some paper work missing. Does yours have the integral parking brake incorporated and are you familiar with the operating procedure? If not, I can give it succinctly - I'm a slow key puncher so won't do it now. Think you will like the system - just like the old "Johnson Bar" flap handles in the early 172s.

The 337 mounts under the instrument panel between the panel and the header tank it appears. The factory handbrake I am using mounts to the main spare frame just ahead of the trim. It is convenient. You pull up on it similar to an auto hand brake. The holes for mounting the brake control were already pre-drilled by the factory. So no modification is necessary, just bolt it in place and hook up the brake hose. I have the parts out being powder coated to match the rest of the interior.

Well I found another solution, the original factory hand brake option. Vern Gregory of usedercoupeparts.com found an original Alon optional handbrake system for me. I then was able to get the a copy of the original factory installation drawings from Univair. The hand brake option is a much better system than the foot brake bar. As a side note, when we removed the original brake cylinder we found people had bushed so hard on the foot brake bar that the mounting bolts were both bent. So no more dances between the brake and the rudder.
