I just brought a use PA 12. one side of the control is straight and line up with rudder, but the left side arm is not straight. So something is wrong with the left arm, I need to know how to move the pin. How to fix this? I try to loosen the rudder line as suggested by other members, and it did not fix the problem. Looking at the steering line diagram, I need to loosen the upper loop that attach to the left arm and straight up the left arm and re-attach the line. This is easy say than done, hobie did not design this for easy access to this line. So I am stuck, any suggestions to fix this will be greatly appreciated. I don't know how to attach image.

It sounds like the line connecting the left and right steering handles is a little loose, which results in poor calibration between the two handles. Remove the line from the right steering handle (pull the loop off the post on the crank) and tie a knot in the line to reduce it's length and see if that makes a difference.
