Is this some kind of parking brake set up on the 8N? Has a notched piece which you can jam into the serrated part with the brake down:





On this side it is missing - can you get these any more and, is this the right set up? Seems a bit odd to have to fiddle around to try to jam that in the serrated part to keep the brake down:

That is the factory parking brake setup. You can get the parking brake pawl for the other side used. John Smith has them on his site. Here's a picture of them and a link to his site. I hope this info helps.

If I remember correctly that's a somewhat typical type of "parking brake" on old tractors.

You step on the brake and hold it down while you flip the small cam with your finger. To release step on the brake. Kinda a PITA.

It is, especially if you are on a hill, need to keep the brake pressed down then have to bend down and fiddle with that thing - thinking of trying to devise some method where you can just jam something in there on the end of a shaft.

As a kid I remember a lever with a finger hold coming up to the back of seat. You could pull it up to set the brake. I just don't remember what model this was on I have a hard time bending down to set the brake on my 8N.

I have a recollection of seeing simpler version of a lever than the
ones RedRock sells - just a 3-4" lever welded to the pawl to make it
a bit easier to grab. I think the lever arm was angled so it's weight
would tend to hold the lever disengaged.

Anyone ever see such a thing? Doesn't seem it would be that hard
to DIY.

Later models (at least our 861 does) have a wire loop
coming up to make it easier to set the pawls in. Probably
could rig something similar on an 8N. One of my 8N's has a
parking brake, but it's only on one side.

Parts missing, look at a 640.These brake locks are not dependable when the parts wear.The 8N owners manual should explain the brake locks.I hope you have a manual.
