So do we understand that the bolts in the front of the chair have the washers under the mount and the bolts in the rear of the of chair have the washers above the mount? I might have it backwards but the front is one way and the back is another? It is not side to side right?

It might just be something they did to adjust the seat level. Maybe they were trying to give it a bit more recline.

You can always adjust the washers if you see fit.

Vin.

Got it. Evidently previous owner didn't like the seat horizontal. Pulled washers and reinstalled the seat. Everything works fine and the Bride say the chair is fine. I thought it might that simple. Thanks for all the input.

I'll bet the mount in attached to the seat in reverse... The front of the mount is facing the rear I'll bet... Remove the mount from both the floor and the chair, rotate it 180 degrees, reattach to floor and remount chair and most likely problem solved ....

So, the picture shows the shims (metal o-rings) installed so the chair is tilted. If you want your co-pilot chair to not tilt remove the nut and o-rings. Put the o-rings under the chair base plate and tighten down the nut like shown in Pic #1.

Better to put the washers on top of the base to prevent the stress and possible breaking of the corners of the base.
