------- "DO IT YOURSELF" ENTRY ------- PURPOSE: Clutch assembly for operators who require a hand operated clutch. Developed for the Farmall M tractor. A 4 by 10 inch piece of steel bolts to the tractor platform through existing holes. A piece of angle iron with one side tapered to accommodate an expansion spring is welded at approximately 130 degrees on the outside angle to make the pivot point. The lever that activates the clutch is constructed of flat bar stock and is offset to avoid interference with the steering wheel. A roller bearing is bolted to the bottom of the lever. The nutted end of the bolt serves as a stop against the angle iron. The bearing is housed in a cup formed from steel welded to a steel plate. The plate is bolted to the shank of the clutch pedal. Two small pieces of steel, one welded to the angle iron and the other welded to the control lever have a 1/4 inch hole drilled to fasten it to the expansion spring. When the lever is pulled toward the operator the bearing rolls against the cup and the clutch disengages. SKILLS REQUIRED:Metalworking. Assembly. Welding. AUTHOR: Field, W.E.
