GEORGE F No FEE- GEORGE F. NOBLE, OF BEACH, NORTH DAKOTA.
AUTOMOBILE-CONI'EDLLING DEVICE.
Application filed November 11, 1916.
To all whom it may concern.-
Be it known that I, GEORGE F. NOBLE, a citizen of the United States, residing at Beach, in the county of Golden Valley and State of North Dakota, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Automobile-Controlling Devices, of which the following is a specification, reference being had to the accompanying drawings.
This invention relates to an improved automobile controlling device and has for its primary object to present an exceedingly simple and efficient means for automatically applying the brakes when the high-speed clutch leverof the machine is shifted to its neutral position.
It is another important object of my invention to provide a device for the above purpose which may be readily applied to the Ford type of automobile without necessitating any structural changes in either the mounting and construction of the brake pedals or clutch lever.
It is also a further general object of my invention to provide means for the above stated purpose, which is positive and reliable in its action, not liable to get out of order, and can be produced at relatively small cost.
With the above and other objects in view, my invention consists in the novel features of construction, combination and arrangement of parts to be hereinafter more fully described, claimed and illustrated in the ac companying drawing, in which,
Figure 1 is a side elevation illustrating the preferred embodiment of my invention and showing the parts in relative position when the brakes are released and the highspeed clutch lever has been moved to shift the high-speed clutch to effective driving position; and
Fig. 2 is a perspective view showing the attachment constituting the present invention connected to the foot pedal which operates the brakes.
Referring in detail to the drawing, 5 designates the rock shaft upon which the brake pedal 6 is mounted and secured in any approved manner. The pedal bar extends upwardly through the floor of the car and is provided upon its upper end with the usual foot plate indicated at 7. The operating connections (not shown) between the rock shaft 5 and the brakes may be of any conventional form and arrangement. 8 desig- Specification of Letters Patent.
Patented July 31, 1917.
Serial No. 130,840.
nates the clutch shifting lever which is mounted and arranged as found in the Ford type of automobile, said lever being provided with a forwardly projecting arm 8 to cooperate with one end of an arm 8 fixed upon the clutch shaft S. To the other end of this arm, one end of the foot pedal C is operatively connected. R designates the reverse pedal.
The brake pedal 7 is formed with an arm 10 projecting downwardly below the rock shaft 5. This arm terminates in a sleeve or cufl' 11, to which one extremity of the angular rod 12 is pivotally connected by means of the pin 18. The other arm 14: of this rod 12 is held against a shoulder 8 on the arm 8 by means of a coil spring 15, one end of which is connected to the rod 12 at the uncture point of its angular arms and the other end suitably attached to the fixed shaft 8 on which the lever 8 is mounted.
In the operation of the device as above described, assuming that the lever 8 has been shifted to the position shown in Fig. 1 and the high speed clutch is in effective locking engagement with the high speed power transmitting gear of the driving mechanism, when in cases of emergency it is desired to quickly stop the machine, it will be manifest that upon a return of the clutch lever to its neutral position, the arm 14 of the rod 12 being engaged behind the lower end of the lever 8 will transmit rocking movement to the shaft 5 through its c011- nection with the foot pedal 6, thereby rocking said shaft and simultaneously applying the brakes. Thus, in the one operation of the lever to shift the clutch to neutral position, the brakes are applied without requiring the separate operation of the brake pedal by means of foot pressure. lVhen the clutch shifting lever is again thrown to position to engage the high speed clutch with the transmission gear, the spring 15 will act to hold the arm of the rod 12 against the lower end of the lever so that said arm will be at all times disposed in position for effective engagement and operation by the lever arm 8.
From the foregoing description, taken in connection with the accompanying drawing, the construction, manner of operation and several advantages of my invention will be fully and clearly understood. By means of the very simple attachment constituting an operative attachment between the clutch other end of said element in position shifting lever and the brake pedal, the brakes are instantly applied sinuiltaneousl with the shifting of the clutch to its neutn position, so that in cases of emergency the I)? il iacliine may be very quickl brou lit to stop. it it not desired to operate the brakes through the medium of the clutch lever, the operator may first press upon the foot plate T to slovvlv apply the brakes before the shifting of the clutch to its neutral position Vl hile 1 have shown and described the preferred construction and arrangement of the device, it will, of course, be understood that the same is susceptible of considerable modification and I, therefore, reserve the privilege of adopting all such legitimate changes may be fairly embodied Within the spirit and scope of the invention as claimed.
Having thus fully des .ibed my invention, What i desire to claim and secure by Letters Patent is 1. In combination, a brake pedal, a clutch shitting lever, an actuating element for the brake pedal connected at one of its ends thereto, and means vieldably sustaining the Y for engagement by the clutch lever when the latter is shifted to neutral position to simultaneously operate the brake pedal and apply the brakes,
In combination, a brake pedal, a clutch.
ment is transmitted through said rod to the brake pedal when the lever is shifted to neutral position and the bra es simultaneously applied.
l. in combination, a brake pedal, a clutch shifting lever having an angularly projecting arm, a rod pivotall connected at one of its ends to the brake pedal, and means vieldingl'y holding the ree end 01 said rod in operative engagement with the arm of the clutch lever, whereby the brake pedal is operated in. the movement of the lever to its neutral position and the brak s simultaneously applied.
in testimony whereof I hereunto aflif; my signature in the presence of two Witnesses.
