------- "DO IT YOURSELF" ENTRY ------- PURPOSE: Brake assembly designed for tractor operators who require a hand operated system. Custom modification for International Hydro 186 Tractor. Two vertical hand levers constructed of steel pipes are mounted in a bracket bolted to the floor. Each lever is free to rotate around a pin in the bracket. Adjustable linkage connects these levers to a second pivot assembly mounted directly beneath the left and right brake pedals. When the operator pushes the vertical levers forward, the brake pedals are depressed. Handles on the vertical levers are padded for operator comfort. By means of the adjustable linkage, the sensitivity of the left and right brakes can be equalized for safety. The authors note that this design can make entry from the right side of the cab rather awkward. SKILLS REQUIRED:Assembly. Metalworking. Welding. AUTHOR:Field, W.E.
