Installation of the spring brake chamber is a reversal of the removal procedure with attention given to the following:
Degreasing Solvent (MIL-PRF-680) is toxic and flammable. Keep away from heat or flame. Never
smoke when using solvent. The flashpoint for Type II Degreasing Solvent is 141 F (61 C). Wear
protective goggles, face shield, and gloves; use only in a well-ventilated area; avoid contact with
skin, eyes, and clothes; and do not breathe vapors. Failure to comply may result in injury or death
If personnel become dizzy while using cleaning solvent, immediately get fresh air and medical
help. If solvent contacts skin or clothes, flush with cold water. If solvent contacts eyes, immediately
flush eyes with water and get immediate medical attention.
Adhesives, solvents, and sealing compounds burn easily and give off vapors that are harmful to the
skin and clothing. To avoid injury or death, keep away from open fire when using these materials,
and use only in well-ventilated areas. If adhesives, solvents, or sealing compounds contact the skin
or clothing, wash immediately with soap and water, and rinse thoroughly. Failure to comply may
result in injury or death to personnel.
Different size spring brake chambers are fitted to each axle. To ensure correct operation of the braking
system, ensure correct size is fitted. Failure to comply may result in damage to vehicle.
Using degreasing solvent and a clean cloth, ensure pneumatic fittings are clean and free from debris.
When installing clevis, locate in approximately the position noted when removed.
Install jam nut (6) and clevis (7).
Ensure all fittings are tightened.
c. Follow-On Maintenance.
Check fittings for leaks and proper braking functions.
