9n pedals

Has anyone converted their 9n pedals to 8n style. I have been using my 9n a fair bit and had a bad experience with a friends International diesel. Instead of putting the brake on I stepped back on the positrack pedal which is where the 9n brake is. I am concerned that the different pedal configuration is going to make me dangerous on normal tractors. I have heard of a farmer almost driving his cousins 9n through a thrashing floor wall and we speculate it was for the same reason different side. Any thoughts or experiences you would like to share would be welcome.

The tractor that almost went through the thrashing wall was hooked to a hay wagon. The owner was riding the load and the helping cousin was driving. We think that he was shoving on the left foot peg thinking it was the clutch but eventually he either figured it out or stalled it. After looking at my 9n I think that I could just extend the clutch and right brake pedals and weld a pad on the ends. The left brake pedal would be more problematic although it could be left original since the other two would alleviate the safety concerns.
Kirk, what is the difference between a regular and industrial 9n?
