Here is a photo of the 317 Crawler undercariage.  Next will be alternative braking system via control levers (or?) vs pedals.   I was thinking about trying to incorporate hydraulic brake activation, but it seems more complicated and exensive than the mechanical linkages.

Twin brake pedals seem to be the preferred method, but I think twin levers on the left fender would work also.

Nice work on the track.

Hello All,

 

Hope everyone is warm and has a snow removal machine!

 

Finally got both tracks and undercarriages mounted.  Now working on raising the body pan and mounting the seat so I can climb on to tell where/how brake pedals can function.

 

Here are a couple of photos-

That is AWESOME! I have a very low hour Kubota 3 cylinder diesel I would love to do that with! I think it will end up in a small tractor of sorts, just don't know in what.

You could run 2 linkages right up between your legs then it would be just like a regular dozer
