SYSTEMS OPERATION - Continued
BRAKE SYSTEM. Consists of brake control pedal connected to hydraulic brake and mechanical
locking arrangement for parking.
ADJUSTMENT. Brake adjusting worm on transmission end covers is used when linkages
have been disturbed. Adjusting brakes is done by bleeding hydraulic system at master
cylinders and slave cylinders, or by adjusting braking controls and linkages on transmission.
B r a k e pedal mechanically linked to master cylinder forces
hydraulic fluid through lines to two hydraulic slave cylinders on transmission that apply
force to brake levers attached to brake apply shafts on transmission.
PARKING BRAKE SYSTEM. Lever and cam attached to shifting pedestal actuates cable
to transmission fittings which lock brake levers by means of a ratchet mechanism when
shifting lever is moved into park (P) position.
