--- "DO IT YOURSELF" ENTRY ------- PURPOSE: Combined brake and clutch assembly for operators who require a hand operated system. The brake assembly is made of two pieces of round bar stock which were bent to follow the contour of the tractor dashboard, and clamped directly to the pedal shanks with "U"-bolts. The left hand lever is bent to the right to avoid interference with the steering wheel. The hand clutch assembly is constructed of a length of round steel bar bent 90 degrees on both ends to form hand levers for the operator on both the right and left side of the dashboard. A piece of flat bar stock with both ends bent 90 degrees is bolted to the console to provide the support frame for the lever shaft. Both ends of the frame have a hole drilled in them, through which the shaft passes. A plate steel lever arm on the shaft, above the clutch pedal, connects to a steel bar linkage extended down the clutch pedal shank. When either clutch lever is pulled toward the operator, force is transmitted to the clutch pedal and the clutch is depressed. The editor warns that installing levers behind the steering wheel or too far in front of the operator could lead to delayed braking in emergency situations. SKILLS REQUIRED:Metalworking. Assembly.
