Is it possible to convert an 1965 model with the pull up knob to lock the brake to the newer version with the lever on the left side that has a ratchet and release button on the end? Its so much easier to set and release the brake with the newer style. I've checked a number of Ford salvage yards and no one knows.

not easily done. the lever type is the english model that has a transmission brake, as "OVER THERE" the tractors are driven on the roadways and have to meet european laws. But would require more parts and expense than its worth.

The Brit tractors with that left hand brake used a bevel gear on the pinion shaft to hold the tractor. It was a superior system of a parking brake. But it would require a split between the tranny and rear end to install all the parts, would be pricey and was prone to letting water into the rear end oil when the seals wore out.
If you are fat and lazy like me look for the parking apparatus from a 3600 to install on your 3000. It was one of many small improvements the X600s had over the Thousands,
Uses about the same T handle but it is mounted higher up on the side so you don't have to reach over so far.
You'll have to do a bit of tinkering to make it work on your 3000 but not hard and definately worth doing.

I had a 1975 Air Force tug with torque convertor. It had the handbrake on the leftside. I'm sure that the Warner and Swazy forklift that I saw this summer used the hand brake. You may possibly find it on other industrial models as well. My 3400 doesn't have it.
