    Default clutch pedal question

    Help me out. What is the purpose of the mechanism to lock the clutch pedal in the down position? The two newer tractors I've had, both have this swinging bar below the clutch pedal to lock it down. Is it for storage purposes or when a tractor is not in use for a while? My tractor never sits long. It gets used at least three or more times a week.

    It is for long term storage so that the clutch plates do not rust together and then not release.

    My 1510 manual said to "Place pedal spacer between clutch pedal and step plate to separate clutch disc from flywheel." According to the pictures, the pedal spacer was just a block of wood with various warning stickers and a screw eye with hanging loop attached.

    Funny how in 1985, Ford could make locking parking brakes, but not a locking clutch pedal.
