I recently had shoulder surgery on my right shoulder and am having trouble setting the brake on my M. I have seen tractors set up with rods coming off of the head light bar going down to a piece of flat stock that trips the brake latch. Does any one have a (blue print) of how to make one of these? Thanks for your time, Mark.

I bought one of those from one of the tractor sights, I think oem , works real good when you adjust it properly, I think either $29 or $35 something like that

I am having that surgery later this month, and wondering why the brake is an issue? I use my boot to tip it up and latch.

What else do I need to watch out for?

Dave, When I push the brake pedal with my right foot and try to reach down and forward with my right arm I am having trouble extending my arm after surgery. Hopefully it will get better, This was my second operation and I am going to see a new doctor this Friday. I can still set the latch but its pretty uncomfortable. Good luck with your shoulder, Mark.

Bet its a gas gauge. I have a couple sticks like that in the barn for the same purpose. Way better than using a butane lighter!!!!

The last M I bought had a cool brake setter on it. It was clearly aftermarket not some homemade thing. There is a bar made of round stock with a finger to set the holder against the teeth. It goes over to the clutch side and is bent up so that you step on the brakes and they step on this lever over under the clutch pedal. Slick as snot. I hadn't seen anything like it but it is the best thing I have seen.

I helped a friend a couple of years ago on his farm for a weekend. He has three Ms that see daily duty, and on everyone of them he had attached a light piece of chain (think bathtub plug chain or something that lightweight) to the parking brake tab and then to the light bar. He left enough slack that the chain doesn't get tangled up in your boots and I never found it to be in the way. It worked great on every tractor he had it on.
