Default home made posi

Maybe BOO can help on this one. My itty bitty brain was unoccupied and seeing threads about posys and welding the spyders I remembered a guy I worked with had a sand buggy and it had a pair of little flipper levers that would operate each rear brake independently and was thinking it would work on our carts.

IDEAS??? Gorno where did you leave the spillchick?

I've always called those tractor brakes, some call them steering brakes
Don't have a pic of the one I had on my rail but it was like a shifter lever and you push it foward to brake the right rear and pull it back to brake the left rear. The ones in the pics are the 2 lever type

Like ruredy said.. ours is a shifter for the turning brakes. but only one lever and I think it's only rear brakes. Beyond that I'd have to ask Tom what it works or how. Again, mechanical=I have no idea.

I got a hold of one of those old push/pull hydraulic valves for my very first sand bug. That thing was a hoot. That car never went straight anywhere again...Imagine the fun you could have in the mud with that?

Great boo, do you really want to start this? I thought we had a thread dedicated to this timeless debate?
