|Learning to drive a foot clutch tractor|
Up until we got a Oliver/Hartparr 70, all I had ever driven were hand clutch Twin Cities and JD's. Dad figured it was time for me to learn to drive a foot clutch. We were running two farms with my brother-in-law at the time, and the Oliver was at his place. Well, Dad got me on the tractor, and, riding behind me was trying to teach me how to run a foot clutch. All was going well, until I rounded a corner at the chicken coup, only to see my sister had lined up about 6 or 7 steel five gallon pails with water and feed for the chickens. I paniced and reached for the hand clutch that wasn't there, and proceded to run over every one of those pails. Did I mention that the Oliver had steel step-toe wheels? I spent the next few minutes prying those pails off the lugs of those step-toe wheels. I never again forgot where the foot clutch was.
