Happy Easter, everybody!
References make modeling difficult: in preparation of my Hobby Boss M4 (B) HST, I studied Ampersand's book and Tankograd's TM excerpt. Which taught me that the driver has more than the two steering brake levers to serve: To his left, there's the Winch Clutch Lever, and between the steering levers, the Power Take-Off Lever. Both can also very well be seen here

While the Winch Lever will be easy to add, the PTO details can't really be seen - where is it mounted, does it consist of two or just one lever? And what is that thing in front of it, hanging down from the front wall, with four holes in it?
Any help will be greatly appreciated.
Stay healthy!
