Oliver control panel question

Oliver experts and tractor aficionados,

The attached picture is NOT of my Oliver 77 (I borrowed it from the internet, possibly even this site), nor do I own an Oliver 77………yet!

Can someone please tell me what the large knob/lever is to the left of the steering column? I see the choke, the ignition/power multi-function switch, and the starter push-button. But for the life of me, I can’t figure out what that lever is for. In all of the videos that I have watched showing Oliver 77's, not a single person touched or referenced that knob. I ask because the Oliver I am looking at has it and I would like to at least appear knowledgeable.

Any inputs are appreciated.

Sincerely,
Bill

Good afternoon,
That knob engages and disengages the belt pulley. I think on mine pushing it in engages and pulling it out disengages it. You need to push the main clutch in to engage it or you will grind the gears. Disengaging can be done anytime. Great tractor love mine. Jeff
