Good job. Looks like the original was just made from soft steel. Your "custom" part should last much longer.

THANKS for the heads-up will check my 05 CK30hst today and grease it at least. I wish I could weld like that. Mike

Pick-up beds and firewood both make excellent mobile workbenches don't they?

Nice work, it looks like it should outlast the original.

+1 on that.. when I dont weld for a while, I get "rusty", and have to re-learn or sharpen my skills. The best way to get good at welding is practice... a lot!

Yeah, I will go with that.

Modern welders are great, helping to make us better weldors. Practice, practice, practice. This was
done with my Hobart Ironman 210 MIG w/ Ar/CO2 gas, .035 ER70S wire. Sure beats the old
AC tombstone stick welders I started with many decades ago.

Thx, MILK. The pickup bed is a custom UTV (RTV) hauler tilt-bed trailer I am making for someone, and the firewood
is my new anvil support block. An anvil's hardie-hole makes a good support while the paint dries on the lever.

Nice redux! To answer your original question: I did have a problem with the PB on my DK-35. I use the following method with my PB: I push the brake pedals down with my left foot and pickup the lever for the PB with my right foot until satisfied the tractor is held in place. To release I push down on both brake pedals with BOTH feet to make the brake release. Otherwise the release can be difficult to effect. Somehow the small spring you show in your pics got stretched and I bought another, but traded the machine before getting to replace it, and whatever else was not working. I suspect same situation as what you found. Certainly a weak link for an important function.:confused2:

Did it fail the same way? How many hours? Did you just buy a new locking lever?
