--- "DO IT YOURSELF" ENTRY ------- PURPOSE: Clutch assembly for operators with left side paralysis who require a clutch that can be operated with the right hand. Custom modification for a Ford T 25 console. A rack and pinion arrangement with a cross shaft allows clutch to be operated from the right side of the console. The lever locks in the disengaged position and allows using the right hand for shifting gears. The lever is attached to a pivot point and linkage which connects to a cross shaft, with a small gear at the left end which engages a rack gear. The rack is connected to the conventional foot clutch arm by an adjustable connecting rod. As the lever is pulled back and down, the cross shaft rotates, actuating the rack and pinion and disengaging the clutch. The latch for locking the lever is a notched plate welded to the lever near the handle. It is engaged with a round anchor rod by side deflection of the lever as it is pulled all the way back.
