------- "DO IT YOURSELF" ENTRY ------- PURPOSE: Electrical clutch assembly for operators with upper and lower extremity impairments, such as quadriplegia. Custom modification for a White 4-210 4WD tractor, uses an electric actuator that can be operated with a dash mounted toggle switch. A clevis pin that connects the foot pedal to the internal clutch assembly was replaced with a pin that extends about two inches to the outside of the linkage. A 12 volt electric actuator is installed on the side of the chassis directly beneath the pin so that its shaft extends vertically. When the actuator is extended, its end comes in contact with the pin and disengages the clutch. When the actuator is retracted, the clutch spring engages the clutch. Red and green lights are used to indicate when the clutch is engaged or disengaged. Another toggle switch, also located on the dash directly above the clutch toggle switch, is the kill switch, used in emergencies to shut of the fuel system. The editors stress the importance of the kill switch for operator safety. SKILLS REQUIRED:Electronics. Metalworking. Assembly. AUTHOR:Field, W.E.
