My tractor had a cobbled up disc brake set-up and linkage. Brake pedal is on right, the brake on left of rear axle drive. cobbled up link was in way and hit stuff. I'm designing a rockshaft kind of system that has rod from pedal to one side of it, and arm to mount disc link into on other. Not done yet, but looking pretty good on what I have done so far. I'll try to get pictures later.

Here's the mock-up of my brake rockshaft in tractor. Think it will work real good. Have out for painting, might show finished pix later.

Done and In. Seems to work good. As good as you can tell while resting anyway. Frame is sitting up on stands while painting and apart. Haven't actually driven, but don't see any issues . Couple pix, yet with black and shiny, don't show up the best.
