Power Hammer foot petal

The foot petal is designed to give a 5 to 1 leverage ratio [or higher] to engage the clutch. The 120 pound pressure needed for engagement only needs 20 pounds of foot presssure. Two return springs prevent the weight of the foot petal itself from causing unnecessary clutch pressure when power is not needed.
