------- "DO IT YOURSELF" ENTRY ------- PURPOSE: Brake assembly designed for tractor operators who require a hand operated system. Custom modification for a John Deere 3020 tractor. Two steel plates are welded to each brake shank and a portion of the pedal. The control levers are constructed of flat bar stock, which is bent to provide independent operation of each brake. Bicycle handlebar grips are welded to the bar stock to serve as handles. A steel plate is welded to each lever to serve as a base, and then bolted to the steel plates on each brake. The control levers do not interfere with foot operation of the brakes, and the steel plates to not interfere with locking the brakes together. The editor warns that brake levers should pull back rather than forward for greater safety and control. SKILLS REQUIRED:Metalworking. Assembly. Welding. AUTHOR:Field, W.E.
