I haven't seen a Shaw tractor since I was a kid, and I can't remember if they had separate brake pedals for right and left.I've been trying to figure that out from pictures, but can't see the pedals in any of the pics I've seen.I think I see only one pedal on the right, did they only have one pedal for both sides? I'm mainly interested in the R12T model. Thanks!

They had a brake pedal for each side and the clutch pedal in the middle.

Thanks for that, Doug. So the left pedal is on the left side next to the clutch?

Ted, Here are pics of the pedals. The center one is the clutch. The brake bands are under the covers on the rear end housing.

Thanks for taking the time to do the pics Doug, much appreciated! I wanted to see the pedal setup because, try not to laugh, I'm building a tractor from scratch that will look like an R12T Shaw. I may end up putting both brake pedals together on the right though, it looks a little tricky to run the way Shaw did it. Thanks again and have a good Labor Day!

Good Luck and post some pictures of the build. I'd like to see it. If you need any other pics let me know and I'll try to help.

I will try and post pictures as I go, it will take a while, I spend my lunch time on it at work, and I don't get much free time.So far I've built the frame (heavy 3" channel), have the clutch and trans set up and ready to mount in the frame. I 'm using a complete rear end assy from an older Economy, so the tractor won't have quite as much ground clearance, since the final drives aren't as huge as on the Shaw. The motor is a little newer Wisconsin TJD 2-cyl., with a starter and points ignition, runs really nice. The trans. and clutch are kind of overkill for a small tractor but will do the job. Transmission is a small Clark 5-speed  with a PTO from an old Ford F500, I got it for free and I have a low/no budget to work with.Thank you for the help!...Ted.

In the pedal pictures that Doug was kind enough to post, I just noticed what looks to be a hook setup to hold the clutch pedal down.Is that  backwards from a normal clutch, in other words is the clutch "in" or released when it's hooked? I've never seen anything like that.Thanks again, Ted.

The hook holds the clutch released.

Thanks Doug! I've taken some pictures with my phone but I can't figure out how to transfer them and compress them, this computer stuff is way, way beyond me.Is there an email address for this site I could send them to?That's likely the only way I could post pictures of this project. Take care, Ted.

Are you using a phone to view the forum? If so, I think that works differently.
