Yep. It should lift up from the heel side of the binding. The toe of the gas pedal (foot bed as it is normally called) will likely be fixed and won't lift up.
I'm going to write this assuming you're using re:flex cartels.
You'll probably change your angles and you figure out how you like to ride. It's good to experiment to see what works best for you anyway. Personally I ride a duck stance at +/- 12 deg, that's a reference point for you anyway. Don't have more than 30 deg between the two (so I'm at 24 deg, 12 deg on the front binding, 12 deg on the back).
To set your angle line up the small arrow on the binding with the angle you want on the disc and slot it in. Make sure the "hinge" of the disc is running perpendicular to the direction of the board (i.e. sideways, not pointing tip to tail). Fuck it I'll post a pic so you know what I mean.
As Jason said mount them so you've got equal overhang on both the toe and heel side. If you've a size 13 hoof then you're more than likely using large bindings, I reckon the middle hole on the re:flex disc will work.
Stance width is another one that takes a little experimentation initially. A good start is to get in a comfortable stance, knees bent, back straight as you would be when riding and set the bindings at that width. Otherwise, just make them slightly wider than shoulder width. Again, you'll move them as you figure out how wide you like them so this is purely a starting point.
When you're mounting them to the board just thread each screw a bit to align them all properly before tightening them all up. I'm pretty sure the legacy has a slight setback so I'd just mount the bindings centred on the mounting holes - i.e. equal and opposite holes.
Next adjust your highback angle. There are two screws, one either side of the heel cup that you need to loosen up to do this. Rotate the highback so it runs parallel to the edge of the board. You do this so your applying to maximum amount of energy to the edge when doing heel side turns.
Lastly you need to make sure your straps are centred on your boot. There's a little screw on each strap that you remove so you can slide the strap in/out.
Last but not least, shred that motherfucker! Hope that helps a bit.
