EMERGENCY BRAKE VALVE
This task covers:
Tool kit SC 4940-97-CL-E12
Whenever the emergency brake valve is removed and installed for any reason,
a stationary vehicle airbrake test (para 2-9) must be performed to check that
the emergency brake valve functions properly in the brake equipment
arrangement. Failure to perform test may result in injury to personnel.
Make sure air is drained before removal of the emergency brake valve.
Residual air may escape and cause injury to personnel.
When removing or repairing brake valves or components, check air lines and
pipes for corrosion, breaks, splits, or loose connections. Repair of air lines and
piping consists of replacing defective pipes, lines, and connections. Refer to TM
55-2210- 223-24P for identification of piping.
Disconnect air fitting.
