Ray - Ask around for a good mechanic or welder/fabricator. Should be a straight forward job to mount a cross shaft and linkage to reposition the clutch handle to the left side.

While you are at it you might want to have him make a new clutch lever perhaps 6" or so longer than original to lessen the effort required to snap the clutch in/out.

My first A had the lever lengthened and it was pretty slick, so my dad and I did the same thing on my B. I have noticed on the B with new cluch plates that it can sometimes be a little hard to get the clutch to disengage with the longer lever. I think the longer lever tends to bend a bit more than the original length one. I like to plow and stuff, so I probably run my clutch a little tight. I"m 6"6" so that"s why I like the longer lever.

My only question with the "V" add on is will the pedestal or dash get in the way?

We have a couple A's we use to pull hayride wagons at a friend's Christmas tree farm. The older one (a '47) has a short clutch lever; the other (a '53) has lever about 6" - 8" longer.

I much prefer the longer one. It requires much less force to snap in/out. It's also easier to modulate for smooth starts, and is easier to operate while standing up.
