TM 5-4210-230-14&P-1 CONTROLS "on".    When  the  lighting  switch  is  pulled  out  all  the  way,  the headlights, side marker lights and taillights are "on".  To light the instrument panel, turn the light switch control to the left; a built-in  rheostat  controls  the  intensity  of  the  panel  light  from "off"  to  full  "on".    To  turn  the  cab  interior  light  on,  turn  the lighting  switch  control  counterclockwise  to  the  extreme  left position. PARKING BRAKE CONTROL The   primary   purpose   of   this   brake   is   to   hold   the vehicle  in  a  parked  position  or  to  assist  in  bringing  it  to  an emergency  stop.    The  parking  brake  should  not  be  used  to brake the vehicle during normal driving. AIR OPERATED To   apply   the   parking   brake,   pull   out   control.      To release the parking brake, push in on control. If air pressure is reduced to approximately 69 kPa (10 psi) in both  the  primary  and  secondary  systems,  the  parking  brake control will automatically apply. MECHANICAL The Orscheln (parking) brake lever is the over-center locking  type.    It  is  tightened  (while  released)  by  turning  the adjusting  knob  clockwise.    When  properly  adjusted,  it  pulls overcenter with a distinct click. POWER DIVIDER LOCK CONTROL (For tandem drive axles) The  power  divider  lock  control  is  used  with  vehicles equipped with dual rear axles having inter-axle differentials. A light, located on the instrument panel will illuminate when the power divider lock is engaged. POWER TAKE OFF CONTROL The  power  take  off  control  is  used  to  assist  in  operating  the winch, dump body or wrecker equipment. RADIO ON OFF SWITCH & VOLUME CONTROL   The on-off switch and  volume  control  are  combined  and  are  operated  with  the left-hand knob. TONE  CONTROL    Tone  control  is  behind  the  on-off  switch. Turn  the  tone  control  fully  clockwise  for  voice  position;  mid- position for music; fully counterclockwise for bass. TO TUNE STATIONS MANUALLY    Turn the right-hand knob either left or right. PUSH-BUTTON TUNING   is accomplished by firmly pressing one   of   the   push-buttons   which   automatically   selects   the station  for  which  it  was  set.    (See  Section  "TO  SET  PUSH- BUTTONS".) FADER/BALANCE   CONTROL       Fader/Balance    Control    is behind  tuning  knob.    Turn  control  knob  either  clockwise  or counterclockwise    to    get    desired    relative    volume    between speakers. (All models do not have this control.) To Set Push Buttons. Stations  may  be  set  up  in  any  order.  However,  for convenience in remembering, it is suggested that stations be set up in frequency sequence. 1. Turn    radio    on    and    allow    to    operate    for    fifteen minutes. 2. Unlock push-buttons by pulling them out. 3. Accurately  tune  in  a  station  with  the  manual  tuning knob. 4. Lock on push-button to that station by pushing firmly in. 5. Repeat above procedure to remaining pushbuttons. In  metropolitan  areas,  it  is   recommended  that  the push-buttons be set up on a shielded place where signals are weak,   such   as   under   a   viaduct   or   in   a   steel-constructed building. Antenna Trimmer Adjustment (Radio) a. Turn  radio  on  and  increase  volume  until  an  audible sound or station is heard. b. Tune   in   a   weak   station   (or   random   noise   level between stations) between 1400 and 1600 KHz. c. Remove right radio control knobs (pull out). d. Insert    screwdriver    through    access    hole    in    radio mounting  cover  and  adjust  antenna  trimmer  screw for maximum volume. 4
