DB885 Clutch Pedal Relocation

Post by PoppyShan885 » Sat Oct 13, 2018 4:08 am

As I was climbing up on my 885 last night, I thought again how much that clutch pedal is nothing but in the way. I began looking into maybe cutting it to make it shorter, but was afraid it may make the clutch more difficult to operate. I was looking for some info on the MF forum today for my son-in-law's TO35 and I came across a post about a clutch relocation on a MF135. It's pushed more like a typical car clutch than straight down like my 885

I thought this looked very good and could be the answer to my problem.
Questions, did DB/Case make a pedal such as this? Could this be made to operate an 885 clutch? Anyone know where one could be found?

David Brown Tractors never made clutch pedals resembling the one pictured.

On the fergies at work I usually lift my foot a little higher and press the clutch pedal as I climb on (i.e stand on it), pressing it down in the process so it's then not a problem.
This also has the advantage of allowing the gears to go in without a crunch when it's already running as it takes a few seconds for the gearbox internals to stop spinning, so it works out quite nicely!
