TM 5-4210-230-14&P-1 VEHICLE OPERATION BRAKE RELEASE (Parking) MGM SPRING BRAKE To  release  the  spring  brake  (manual  release)  in  the event  there  is  loss  of  air  and  the  vehicle  must  be  towed,  the spring brake must be manually released or “caged”. Cross Section of MGM Spring Brake Assembly If  the  release  bolt  should  bind,  apply  "Liquid  Wrench" or equivalent to the bolt and allow to soak into the threads. In   the   event   the   air   source   has   been   depleted   the release bolt can be backed off by removing the breather cap and  turning  the  release  bolt  counterclockwise  57.15  to  63.5 mm   (2   1/4"   to   2   1/2")   or   approximately   30   turns.      When turning  the  bolt  you  will  actually  be  pulling  or  collapsing  the spring manually. BRAKE RESET (Anchor Lok) Charge    spring    brake    chambers    with    air    pressure. Remove the release stud and nut from the spring housing and reinstall the access plug in the housing opening.  Reinstall the release   stud   and   nut   in   the   carrying   pocket   on   the   brake chamber housing. BRAKE RESET (MGM) If the release bolt threads are dry apply a light coat of "Never Seeze" lubricant or equivalent to the threads.  Do not apply "Never Seeze" lubricant supplied in an aerosol can. To  manually  reset  parking  brake  at  each  spring  brake chamber,   screw   release   bolt   down   into   unit   until   nut   is bottomed against the receiver.  Torque nut to 67.79 N.m (50 ft.lbs.) and reinstall breather caps. BRAKES (Hydraulic) CAUTION Hydraulic   brake   systems   used   on   S-Series models are power assisted. Braking capabilities   will   be   greatly   reduced   without engine   assist.      DO   NOT   MOVE   VEHICLE WITH DEAD ENGINE. If   a   failure   is   experienced   in   one   side   of   the   split hydraulic   system,   the   vehicle   will   still   have   the   remaining portion   of   the   split   system   to   allow   stopping   the   vehicle; however,  the  vehicle  should  be  operated  only  with  extreme caution to reach a repair facility since the braking capabilities will be reduced. BRAKE PEDAL Should  the  brake  become  wet,  immediately  dry  them while  the  vehicle  is  moving  by  light  application  of  the  brake pedal. PARKING BRAKE (Burnishing) Refer to Maintenance Section. CLUTCH PEDAL Do  not  ride  the  clutch  pedal.    Keep  your  foot  off  the clutch  pedal  except  to  shift  gears  or  when  the  truck  is  being brought to a stop. DRIVING (Manual Transmission) 1. Always   check   the   brake   system   by   depressing   the brake pedal before attempting to drive the vehicle.  This will    familiarize    you    with    the    brake    pedal    action. Observe the air gauges to determine if the minimum of 483 kPa (70 psi) pressure exists. 2. Depress the clutch pedal. 3. Shift the transmission into first gear position. 4. Release the parking brake. 5. Depress  the  accelerator  pedal  to  speed  up  the  engine sufficiently   to   pick   up   the   load.      Release   the   clutch pedal slowly and further depress the accelerator pedal to  prevent  the  engine  from  stalling  while  the  vehicle moves forward. 6. As the speed increases, release the accelerator and at the same time depress the clutch pedal.  Then shift the transmission   to   the   next   higher   transmission   gear. Release  the  clutch  slowly  and  depress  the  accelerator as described above.  Repeat this procedure as you shift progressively into the higher speed ranges. DRIVING DOWNHILL A  safety  rule  followed  by  all  experienced  drivers  when driving  downhill,  is  to  use  the  brakes  and  transmission  gear combinations   to   keep   the   vehicle   under   control.      Before entering the downhill grade, apply the brakes to 3
