Energic motoculteurs wheel clutch pins.
There is a Patissier system of levers operated from a handlebar to engage gears, drive forward and back and engage the wheel clutch pins to steer right, left and aid in reverse.
To turn the Energic motoculteur just engage the lever on the handlebar either right to turn right (blocking the right wheel) or conversely left for a left turn. These are located on the outer sides of the handlebars. The same system is universally used across the models before 1940 and on the 400 and 700 series after that date
The runner/direction pin is susceptible to wear, you can usually tell how much the machine has been and how hard a life it has had from the state of these pins. They were often poorly replaced with non-original pieces to save on cost – not cost-effective in the long term. Sometimes the tooth is worn away completely making the operation of the wheel clutch very slack or eventually ineffective.
photos good conditions.
Wheel pin and assembly in good serviceable condition.
On the newer models, there is a change in the angle of the track/gullet the pin rides in for a smoother transfer.
The sleeve transfers the movement of the lever through a sleeve over the axle to the wheel hub assembly, where the wheel clutch pin is pushed through an inner holed disc, fixed to the hub, stopping the wheel from rotating.
Wheel clutch mechanism operated from 2 independent levers on the handlebars.
The mechanism pushes a large pin into a perforated inner disc which is in a fixed position on the wheel hub preventing the movement of that wheel. Turning right and left depending upon which lever operates on each wheel.
From this difficult manoeuvre to the right-hand photo of a one-touch reverse plough lift.
This system in reverse enables the operator to lift the implements out of the ground and turn within the overall length of the machine – offering greater manoeuvrability to motoculteurs weighing nearly 500kg with double wheel weights.
