------- "DO IT YOURSELF" ENTRY ------- PURPOSE: Brake assembly designed for tractor operators who require a hand operated system. Custom modification for an International 806 tractor. The brake levels are made of flat bar stock. Each lever is attached to the brake pedal shank by two bolts. A notch has been ground at the base of the left hand control to allow the brake locking mechanism to operate freely. A handle is welded at the top of each lever and covered with a cushioned motorcycle grip. The editor cautions that drilling a hole in the shank of a foot pedal can reduce its strength, and may also lower the resale value of the tractor. It is also recommended that levers pull back rather than forward for better control. SKILLS REQUIRED:Metalworking. Assembly. Welding. AUTHOR:Field, W.E.
