------- "DO IT YOURSELF" ENTRY ------- PURPOSE: Combined brake and clutch assembly for operators who require a hand operated system. A control jack shaft mounted under the operator's console holds all three controls. Only the left hand brake fixture is mounted permanently to the jack shaft. The clutch lever and right hand brake lever are mounted on short pieces of pipe which can rotate around the shaft. The hand levers are actuated by pushing them forward, bringing a small roller in contact with the upper foot pedals. When released, the levers are returned to their rest position by the spring action of the brake and clutch. Both brakes can be operated independently or as a unit by pushing only one lever. The assembly can be easily removed for operation by foot. The editor warns that considerable stress is likely to develop at points where the hand levers connect with the jack shaft or rotating pipes. It is also pointed out that roller contact on the pedal shanks is high, which could mean that considerable force might be required to push the handles. It is recommended that padding be applied to the end of the levers to improve gripping. SKILLS REQUIRED: Metalworking. Assembly. AUTHOR:Field, W.E.
