--- "DO IT YOURSELF" ENTRY ------- PURPOSE: Brake assembly designed for tractor operators who require a hand operated system. Two levers are constructed from lengths of rectangular steel bar stock. Each bar is offset at the top to enable the user to engage each brake individually. The levers pivot around a bolt that extends through a steel bracket mounted to the tractor's instrument panel. A flat washer separates the two levers at this pivot point. Lengths of bar stock are attached by small ball joints to the lower ends of the levers. The other ends of the square bars are bolted to the brake shanks. Pulling back on the brake levers forces the brake pedal shanks forward and engages the brakes. SKILLS REQUIRED: Metalworking.
