Fi.gure 1-2. Block Diagram - EL Transporter Brakes.
air line to the transporter emergency relay valve.
This valve causes air to be released from the air
reservoir to the brake air chambers. As the brake
air chamber is pressurized, the motion of its
diaphragm is transferred to thc master cylinder
piston, which forces hydraulic brake fluid to the
wheel cylinders, forcing the brake shoes against
the brakedrum.
b. Bralw Release (fig. 1-2). When the tractor
brake pedal or the johnny bar in the tractor is
released, a drop in pressure in the servicc air \ine
causes the transporter emergency relay valve to
exhaust compressed air from the brake air cham·
bers. Retracting springs in the brakc air chambers
cause pressure to he removed from the brake mas·
ter Retracting springs on the brake
shoes pull the brake shoes away from the
brakedrums, releasing the brakes.
1·5. Description of EL Brake Components.
a. Air Line Couplings (fig. 1-1). Two air line
couplings (glad hands) are mounted on the front
of the EL. These couplings mate with air lines
from the towing vehicle, which provide service and
emergency air to the EL brake system.
1-2
b. Air Ji'ilters (fig. 1-1). A filter is connected
into both the service and emergency air lines to
remove maisture and foreign matter from the air.
Each filter contains a replaceable filter element
and a drain plug for draining moisture.
c. Air ·Reservoir (fig. 1-1). The air reservoir is
a metal tank mounted on the EL chassis. The
reservoir stores a supply of air under sufficient
pressure to operate the transporter brakes. A
drain cock allows accumulated maisture to be
drained from the tank and allows air pressure
to be released in the event of locked brakes or
when making repairs or adjustments on the
brakes.
d. Emergency Relay Valve (fig. 1-1). The emer-
gency relay valve is mounted under the center
rear of the chassis. The valve releases air from
the air reservoir directly to the brake air cham-
bers. In addition, this valve controls the airflow
to and from thc air reservoir, and in the event
of sudden loss of pressure in the emergency air
line caused b.v \oss of air from the towing vehicle
or breakaway of the transportcr from the towing
vehicle, it automatically applies transporter
brakes.
j
I
.
'
C2
(1) When brakes are applied in the towing
vehic\e, air passes through the service air line into
the service port of the relay valve. This air pres-
sure, acting upon the relay valve's diaphragm,
causes the exhaust port to close and the inlet port
to open, allowing air to flow from the air reservoir
to the brake air chambers.
(2) When thc brakes are relcaserl in the tow-
ing vehicle, pressure in the servicc air line drops.
This drop in pressure allows thc relay valve
diaphragm return spring and air pressure beneath
the relay valve diaphragm to Iift the diaphragm
and relay valve plunger, closing the inlet valve
and opening the exhaust \'31\'e. This permits the
air in the brake air chamber to rush through the
open exhaust valve, up through the hollow relay
valve plunger and out the exhaust port Whether
all the air is released or to what extent the brakes
are applied is determined by the amount of brake
pedal or johnny bar application on the towing
vehicle.
(3) To fill the air reservoir on the trans-
porter, air from the towing vehicle flows through
the emergency air line inlet of the emergency
relay valve, up a passage on one side of the valve,
through thc normally open emergency check valve
in the upper portion, down another passage on
the other side of the valvc to a cavity at the
bottom, and out through a line to the air reservoir.
(4) This roundabout passage of the air pro-
vides for operating the emergency feature of the
valve. If anything should cause a pressure drop
in the emergency air line, such as the transporter
breaking away from the towing vehicle, the emer-
gcncy air Jine being detached, or a serious leak
deve\oping in the emergency air line, air attempts
to force its way out the same way it got in. In
so doing, it closes the emergency check valve at
the top of the unit and applies pressure to the
top of the check valvc diaphragm. All diaphragms,
connecting linkage, and valves are pressed down-
ward, closing the exhaust valve, and releasing air
from the reservoir to the hrake air chambers to
set the brakes.
(5) The brakes may be rcleased after an
emergency application by hooking up the emer-
genry air line coupling or by bleeding off the air
at the air reservoir.
e. Brake Air Chamber (fig. 1-1). The brake air
chamber is mounted to the front of the master
cylinder and the total assembly bolted to the
transporter chassis. lt converts air pressure into
mechanical motion to operate the master cylinder.
As the chamhcr is pressurized, the motion of its
diaphragm moves a pushrod against the master
cylinder piston, which moves rearward to build
TB 9-1440-380-14-4
up hydraulic pressure. When air pressure is re-
duced, a spring returns the pushrod and
diaphragm to a released position, reducing hy-
draulic pressure in the master cylinder.
f Master Cylinder (fig. 1-1). The master cyl-
inder is attached to the brake air chamber, and
the total assembly is bolted to the transporter
chassis. The master cylinder converts motion of
the air chamber pushrod into hydraulic pressure,
which applies the brakes. Hydraulic pressure
created is proportional to the pressure applied by
the pushrod.
g. Wheel Brake Mechanism. This mechanism
consists of a drum, two brake shoes, two wheel
cylinders and two retracting springs. Hydraulic
prcssure from the master cylinder causes the
wheel c:ylinder pistons to push the brake shoes
against the brakedrum, stopping the whee\s from
rotating. Retracting springs draw and hold the
shoes away from the drum when hydraulic pres-
sure is released.
1-6- EHects of Towing Vehicle Malfundions
on El Brakes.
Improperly connected air lines, leaking valves and
connections, malfunctioning brake components, etc,
on the towing vehicle will cause brake problems
on the EL. Example: A leaking johnny bar will
cause the EL brakes to be applied at all times and
a leak of sufflcient volume will lock the EL b r a k e ~
without the johnny bar being actuated. The towing I
vehicle brake system can be tested for proper Op-
eration as prescribed in appendix A.
1-7. Description of Kingpin Assembly.
The kingpin assembl.v (fig. 1-1) bolts under the
front of the EL and serves as the coupling device
to attach the EL to the towing vehicle.
1-8. Description of Landing Gear Assembly.
The landing gear assembly (fig. 1-1) consists of
two screw-operated landing legs, a gearbox with
connecting linkage, a folding ratchet-drive crank,
a crank holder, and front and side supports. The
landing gear supports the front of the EL when
the EL is not in operation and is uncoupled from
the to\ving vehicle.
1-9. Description of Axle Assembly.
The bogie-type axle assembly (fig. 1-1) consists
of tandem axles and a pivot axle joined ijy leaf
springs, helper springs, and torque rods. Four
wheels and four tubeless pneumatic tires are
mounted to studs on the tandem axles.

CHAPTER2
SERVICE UPON RECEIPT OF MATERIEL
2-1. General. 2-2. Duties of Using Organization.
When a new, used, or reconditioned EL is first
received, it is the responsibility of the officer in
charge to determine whether the EL has been
properly prepared for service by the supplying or-
ganization and to be sure it is in condition to
perform its function. This chapter pertains to
service upon receipt requirements of the EL trans-
porter. Since problems in the towing vehicle can
give a false indication of EL brake problems, the
towing vehicle should be tested as prescribed in
appendix A.
Operator and organizational personnel will per-
form the service upon receipt inspections and tests
listed in table 2-1. Any problern discovered during
service upon receipt inspections will be referred
to automotive maintenance personnel for correc-
tive action.

I 3-8.1. M-757 Operator Tips.
Note
The following tips are for operators of
the M-757 tractor when towing the PER-
SHING la Missile System EL.
a. Prior to travel, insure that the air pressure
gage in the tractor cab indicates at least 105 psi.
l
The low air pressure warning buzzer
stops sounding when air pressure increas-
es to approxirnately 60 psi. Do not
assume that air pressure is adequate just
because the buzzer is not sounding.
b. Insure that the EMERGENCY and SERV-
ICE brake lines between the tractor and EL are
properly connected and that the brake air shutoff
valves on the tractor are in the OPEN position.
e. Insure that the truck tractor protection con-
trol valve Iever is in the NORMAL position.
[ CAUTION l
1f the truck tractor protection control
valve Iever is in the EMERGENCY posi-
tion, the trailer brakes will lock.
d. Do not use the air hand brake control Gohnny
bar) to brake the tractor and EL except in emer-
gencies. The tractor brake foot pedal operates the
EL brakes.
e. Before starting downhill, downshift the trans-
mission and select "ALL WHEEL DRIVING" to
take advantage of engine drag to reduce brake us-
age. Use tractor brake foot pedal to control down-
hill speed.

4-5. General.
This section contains conventional troubleshooting
procedures to assist autornative organizational
maintenance personnel in isolating and correcting:
• A leaking foot control, johnny bar, or tractor·
trailer protection valve will cause the EL
brakes to drag and overheat, and a leak of
sufficient volume may lock the EL brakes.
Insufficient air pressure from the towing vehi·
cle will prevent proper operation of EL brakes.
Improper positioning of thr truck·tractor
protection valve will prevent proper operation
of the EL brakes.

to insure effective operation of filter.
d. Perform a leak test on the air filter after
assembly (par. 3-6).
4-9. Bleeding Brake Hydraulic System. ..",c
a. Purpose. Air in the hydraulic brake system
will prevent proper operation of the EL brakes.
Need for bleeding is generally indicated by weak
brake application. Brakes must be bled whenever
any of the hydraulic components are removed or
any hydraulic line is opened. If a hydraulic leak
is detected at any of the hydraulic fittings, the
brakes should be bled after the leak is corrected.
The two hydraulic systems (one for each axle) are
independent of each other. Maintenance on one
system will require bleeding of that system only.
The air chamber assembly mounted on the right
side of the EL chassis controls the forward axle
brakes and the assembly mounted on the left side
controls the rear axle brakes.
b. Methods o.f Bleeding. Bleeding can be done
manually with the towing: vehicle air system con-
nected to the EL to force fluid from the master
cylinder when the brakes are applied or by
bleeding pressure with a pressurized hydraulic
bleed container attached to the master cylinder.
c. Manual Bleeding.
(1) Service master cylinder (par. 3-4).
(2) Insure that drain cock (9, fig. 4-6) on
EL air reservoir is closed.
(3) Connect towing vehicle air lines to EL
and pressurize EL brake system (par. 3-3).
(4) Clean bleeder valve and install a bleeder
tube between bleeder valve and a container of
silicone brake fluid MIL-B-46176 as shown in fig-
ure 4-2. End of tube must be completely sub-
merged in fluid and container must be made of
a clear material that will allow observation of air
bubbles. Bleeder tube, container, and brake fluid
must be clean so that fluid bled from the brake
system can be checked for contamination.
[ ~ ~ u : t • : o : ~ !
Do not bleed master cylinder dry. Re-
plenish fluid as required during bleeding
operation. Always refill master cylinder
prior to starting on another wheel (par.
3-4).
(5) Apply and hold EL brakes, using the
johnny bar in towing vehicle. Momentarily open

bleeder valve by turning valve counterclockwise,
and observe fluid entering container through
bleeder tube. Air in system will appear as bubbles
in fluid being expelled through bleeder tube. Close
bleeder valve and release brakes. Repeat this pro-
cedure until all air is expelled from the system
as indicated by a clear stream of fluid with no
air bubbles.
( 6) Tighten bleeder valve and remove bleeder
tube and fluid container.
(7) Repeat procedures in (4) through (6)
above on the other wheel cylinders (two per
wheei). Replenish brake fluid in master cylinder
before next wheel cylinder is bled.
(8) Insure that both master cylinders are full
after bleeding operation (par. 3-4).
(9) Inspect brake fluid for contamination. If
contaminants are evident, flush contaminated sys-
tem (par. 4-11).
d. Pressure Bleeding.
(1) Loosen vent tube and remove filler plug
from top of master cylinder.
(2) Connect hose of pressure feed filler, with
proper size adapter, to master cylinder. Pressure
feed filler should contain sufficient air pressure
and silicone brake fluid MIL-B-46176 to maintain
constant fluid level in master cylinder.

(3) Bleed both axle brake systems as in man-
ual bleeding method (c above), except that manual
application of brakes and replenishment of brake
fluid is not required.
(4) After bleeding operation is complete, re-
move pressure feed filler and reinstaU master cyl-
inder filler plug and vent line.
4-10. Testing Brake Hydraulic System for
Contamination.
Brake fluid contaminated with water,
sand, or other foreign matter can cause
severe EL brake problems. U se care,
during daily Operations, to prevent
tamination of thc hydraulic system.
a. Couple EL and towing vehicle brake systems
(par. 3-3a).
Note
To test the complete system for contam-
ination, fluid must be bled from each
of the four wheels.
b. Clean bleeder valve and instaU a bleeder tube
between bleed valve and a clean container made
of a material that will allow visual inspection of
brake fluid (fig. 4-2).
I
Never pump the brakes with the bleeder
valve open. Air will be pulled into the
system if brakes are re\eased when
bleeder valve is open.
c. Apply and hold EL brakes, using the johnny
bar in towing vehicle. Open and then close bleeder
valve and bleed a small amount of brake fluid
into container. Visual\y inspect fluid for evidence
of contamination.
Never bleed the master cylinder dry. Re-
plenish as required during bleeding Op-
eration (par. 3-4).
d. Repeat procedures in b and c above on the
other three wheels.
e. If any evidence of contamination is detected,
the hydraulic system showing contamination must
be flushed and refilled and the cause of contam-
ination corrected (par. 4-11).
f Refill master cylinders after contamination
check (par. 3-4).
TB 9-1440-380-14-4
4-11. Flushing Brake Hydraulic System.
a. If evidence of contamination is
found in either of the hydraulic brake systems,
that svstem must be flushed to remove contam-
While brakes are disassembled for
flushing, all brake components must be inspected
to determine source of contaminants. Flushing of
the hydraulic system consists of forcing brake
fluid through the system until all contaminants
are removed and cleaning or replacing contam-
inated parts.
b. Flushing Contaminated System .
(1) lf towing vehicle is connected to EL,
decouple the brake system (par. 3-3b). Insure that
drain cock on EL air reservoir is open to insure
release of EL brakes.
(2) Extend jacks on EL until all wheels are
clear of ground (TM 9-1440-380-10).
(3) Remave both wheels, hubs, and
brakcdrums from contaminated system (par. 4-25).
Disassembly of wheels, hubs, and brakedrums is
not necessary for this operation.
(4) Using a vacuum cleaner, remove all dust
and foreign materials from brake components and
backing plates.

Brake fluid or grease on brake linings
will cause improper operation of the

and installation procedures for major assernblies
and parts of the EL brake system that are main-
tained at the organizational maintenance Ievel.
Exploded-view illustrations used in this section are
numbered in disassembly sequence.
I WARNING I
• Never get under the EL without first
insuring that it is sufficiently sup-
ported to prevent injury to personnel.
• Prior to disconnecting any brake line
or hose, insure that the EL and towing
vehicle brake systems are decoupled as
prescribed in paragraph 3-3b and that
the EL reservoir drain cock is open.
• Drycleaning solvent, uscd as a clcaning
agent throughout this TB, is flam-
mable and poisonous. Do not use near
an open flame or sparks. Use only in
a well-ventilated area.
Personnel performing maintenance on
the EL brake system must take every
possible precaution to avoid contami-
nating interior surfaces of the brake
components. All parts must be thor-
oughly cleaned before reassembly.

I WARNlNG I
Cleaning solvent is flammable and
poisonous. Do not use near an open
flame or sparks. Use only in a well-
ventilated area.
Asbestos dust can be harmful to your
health. Asbestos dust is present on
brake linings and around components
located inside brakedrums. Never use
compressed air to blow dust and dirt
from brake components located in
vicinity of brake linings. Use a vacuum
cleaner to remove dust and dirt from
brakedrums and from brake compo-
nents in vicinity of brake linings.
b. Cleaning. Wash brakedrum and hub compo-
nents thoroughly with drycleaning solvent P-D-
680, type 2. Vacuum all brakc dust and foreign
material from brake components and backing
plate. Remave residue left by solvent.
c. Inspection. Inspect brakedrum for warpage,
cracks, or scored braking surfaces. Repair of the
brakedrums is the responsibility of automotive·
DS/GS maintenance personnel. Inspect bearings
and grease seals for damage.
Note
When installing brakedrums or any in-
ternal brake component, cover all un-
painted or unprimed meta! surfaces
enclosed within brakedrums, including
all brake components and inside of
brakedrurns, except linings and faying
surface of brakedrum to lining, with
primer coating MIL-P-46093A.
I
When replacing studs (16, fig. 4-12), in-
staU studs with left-hand threads on
roadside of EL and studs with right-
hand threads on curbside of EL.
d. Repair. Repair brakedrum and hub assem-
blies by replacing those items found defective and
shown in figure 4-12. When replacing studs (16
4-19
TB 9-1440-380-14-4
and 20), alinc splines on stud with cuts in adapter
or hub and drive studs in with a hammer.
e. Installation. Install brakedrum in reverse
order of removal (fig. 4-12), insuring that wheel
attaching studs with left-hand threads are in-
stalled on roadside of EL. Repack wheel bearings
with grease MIL-G-10924. Adjust wheel bearings
as follows.
(1) While turning hub and brakedrum as-
sembly, tighten bearing adjusting nut (7), using
wheel bearing adjusting wrench 45225-1924, until
hub binds on spindle.
(2) Back off nut approximately one-eighth of
a turn.
(3) Check adjustment by attempting to rock
brakedrum on spindle. If bearings are properly
adjusted, movement of hrakedrum in relation to
top edge of backing plate will srarcely be visible.
Drum must turn freely. If movement is excessive
(over 1/32 inch), further adjustment is required.
(4) S!ide lockwasher (6) over spindle; then
instaU nut (5) tightly against lockwasher.
(5) Recheck wheel bearing adjustment; then
bend one tab of lockwasher (6) over flat of nut
(5), and another tab over flat of nut (7).
(6) Install gasket (4) and cap (3) as shown
in figure 4-12.
(7) Perform brake adjustment (par. 4-12).
4-26. Interna I Brake Components ( figs. 4-13
and4-14).
a. General. The internal brake components con-
sist of the brake shoes, wheel cylinders, brake ad-
justing mechanisms, backing plates, and associ-
ated springs and mounting hardware. The internal
brake components are shown exploded in figures
4-13 and 4-14. Repair procedures are identical for
the left and right brake assemblies. All eight
wheel cylinders are intcrchangeable. The only dif-
ference in the wheel cylinders is the location of
the bleeder valve. In all cases, the bleeder valve
is installed in thc top port when cylinder is viewed
from the rcar of backing platc. The internal brake
components should be inspected as prescribed in
b below to determine required replacement and
repair.
IWARNING I
Asbestos dust can be harmful to your
health. Asbestos dust is present on
brake linings and araund components in
vicinity of brake linings. Usc a vacuum
cleaner to remove dust and dirt. Never
use compressed air to clean brake com-
ponents in vicinity of brake linings.
[ ~ A ~ : ! ! ~ N !
• Never apply brakes with brakedrum reM
moved.
Brake fluid, cleaning solvent, or grease
on brake linings will prevent proper
Operation of the EL brakes and could
cause a brake fire. Insure that the lin-
ings arc kept clean at all times.
Drycleaning solvent is detrimental to
nonmetal brake components. Clean
nonmetal components with brake fluid
only.
b. /nspection.
(1) Remove and inspect brakedrums (par.
4-25).
(2) Using a vacuum cleaner, remove all
brake dust and foreign material from brake com-
ponents and backing plates.
(3) Inspect wheel cylinders for evidence of
leaking brake fluid and damaged ruhher cups. A
leaking cylinder must be replaced or repaired.

141 Inspect brake linings for wear and for
1:vidence of darnage and overheating. Relining of
the brake shoes is the responsibility of autornative
DS/GS maintenance personnel. The officer in
charge should determine if brake linings are worn
enough to require replacement. Brake linings that
have been contaminated with brake fluid or grease
must be replaced.
(5) Test brake shoe return springs as fol-
lows:
(u) Remave upper and lower brake shoe
return springs (1), using brake repair pliers 5120-
00-690-8044.
I (b) Using spring scale 6670-00-449-9651,
determine amount of pul\ rcquired to stretch
spring to a length of 9-9/16 inches, measured be-
tween inside surfaces of spring ends.
(c) An acceptable spring must require a
minimum of 50 pounds and a maximum of 65
pounds pull to stretchspring to 9·9/16 inches.
(d) Any spring not meeting the above
criteria must be replaced. Test replacement
springs in accordance with above procedures prior
to instal\ation. Reject any spring that does not
pass test.
(6) lnspect position of spacers (5 and 9).
Spacers must be positioned in slots of brake shoe
assernblies to prevent brake shoes from being
overtightened. A brake shoe that is too tight will
not return to its released position when brakes
are released, which will result in a dragging brake
and possibly a brake fire.
(7) Visually inspect all remaining internal
brake components for darnage or excessive wear.
Any part that is excessively worn or damaged in
any manner should be replaced to prevent future
brake malfunctions.
c. Rcmuval. Figures 4·13 and 4·14 are exploded
views of the internal brake components, indexed
in disassembly sequence. Remove only those items
deemed necessary as a result of inspections in
b above. Prior to removing brake shoes, install
clamps over ends of wheel cylinders to retain
wheel cylinder pistons. If backing plates are to
be removed, refer to figure 4·12.
I WARNING I
Cleaning: solvent is flammable and
poisonous. Du not use near ar. open
flame or sparks. Use only in a well-
ventilated arca.
TB 9-1440-380-14-4
d. Cleaning. Clean all meta! components with
drycleaning solvent P-D-680, type 2. Remave res-
idue left by solvent. Insure that linings are kept
dry and clean at all times.
e. Repair. Repair internal brake components by
replacing those items found defective and shown
in figures 4-13 and 4-14. Repair wheel cylinders
as fol\ows:
(1) Disassemble wheel cylinder as shown in
figure 4-15.
(2) Clean inside of cylinder body and all
meta! components with drycleaning solvent P-D-
680, type 2. Clean all nonmetal parts with silicone
brake fluid MIL-B-46176. Remove all residue left
by cleaning solvent. Clean bleed valve and fluid
entry port with compressed air.
(3) Minor scratches and pitting may be re-
moved from the bore of the cylinder body with
fine crocus cloth. If the bore contains scratches
and pits that, in the opinion of the officer in
charge, could result in hydraulic leaks, the cyl-
inder must he replaced.
(4) Reassemble wheel cylinder as shown in
figure 4-15, using new parts as required. Apply
silicone brake fluid MIL-B-46176 to inside of bore
and dip all internal parts in hrakc fluid during
assembly. Insure that piston expander (3C) is
properly seated inside cylinder body. The bleeder
valve (5) is installed in top port when cylinder
is viewed from rear of backing plate.
Note
When installing brakedrums or any in-
ternal brake component, spray all un-
painted or unprimed meta! surfaces
enclosed within brakedrums, including
all brake components and inside of
brakedrum, except linings and faying
surface of brakedrum to lining, with
primer coating MIL-P-46093A.
f Installation. Iostall internal brake compo-
nents as shown in figures 4-13 and 4-14. Insure
that spacers (5 and 9) are positioned in slots of
brake shoes to prevent overtightening. Brake shoes
must move freely after installation. Torque cou-
pling nuts of tube assernblies {34 and 35) to 142

4-27. Pneumatic Tubing.
a. General. Two types of pneumatic tubing are
used in the EL brake system. Copper tubing is
used from the glad hands on front of EL to the
brake air filters (fig. 4-5) and nylon reinforced
flexible tubing is uscd for all remaining air lines
(fig. 4-6). None of the pneumatic tubing is stocked
as assernblies and must be fabricated if replace-
ment is required. All pneumatic tubing is iden-
tified in table 4-3 and also in figures 4-5 and 4-6.
Use caution when removing or installing
pneumatic tubing. Always use a backup
wrench on the fitting to prevent
twisting of tubing.
b. Removal. Remave pneumatic tubing as
shown in figures 4w5 and 4-6 and perform the fol-
lowing as applicable.
(1) Back off coupling nuts at each end of
tubing. Tubing that is wrapped with si!icone tape
will require removal of 1 inch of tape immediate\y
behind coupling nut before nut can be removed
from fitting. Use carc \vhen cutting tape from
tubing tu prevent cutting the outer jacket of tub-
mg.
(2) When tubing is routed through trailer
crossmembers, work tubing through openings in
crossmembers. The grommets that the tubing
passes through (fig. 4w5) are split and can be re-
moved to provide clearance.
(3) Remave tubing clamps (fig. 4-4) as re-
quired to remove tuhing.
(4) If grating must be removed from EL to
provide access to tubing, refer to TM 9-1440-380-34
for removal instructions.
c. Repair. Normally, pneumatic tubing must be
replaced if damaged; however, if sufficient length
is provided, a fitting may be replaced by cutting
tubing behind compression sleeve and installing
a ne\v sleeve and insert (fig. 4wl6).
d. Tubing Fabrication. Fabricate pneumatic
tubing as shown in figure 4-16 and table 4-3 and
perform the following as applicable.
(1) Cut new tubing, using material and
length information shown in table 4-3. Insure that
ends of tuhing are cut square.
(2) Remave burrs from both ends of copper
tubing.
(3) Flush inside of new tubing with clean,
dry air.
(4) Use tube bender from tubing fabrication
kit to bend copper tubing. Some
of the bends must be made during installation.
(5) Tightly wrap flexible tubing (1, 15, and
17, fig. 4-6) with silicone tape MILwl-46852, type
2, to a minimum thickness of 0.080 inch. Start
and end tape application 1-1/2 inches from ends
of tubing to a\lo\',' for instaUation of coupling nuts.
After tubing has been installed, finish wrapping
tubing. Tape must completely cover tubing and
coupling nuts. The centerline on the tape repre-
sents the amount of overlap during application.

(6) Paint outside of copper tubing with for-
est green enamel MIL-E-52798.
(7) Apply direction of flow and identification
tape MIL-T-9906 near each end of pneumatic tub-
ing. Show flow in both direetions for tubing (1,
15, and 17, fig. 4-6) and toward relay valve only
for all othcr pneumatic tubing.
e. Installation. InstaU pneumatic tubing in re-
verse order of removal and perform the following
as applicable.
(1) Refer to figure 4-16 for installation of
sleeves, inserts, and coupling nuts. These items
are identified in table 4-3.
(2) When installing tubing, insert tubing
into fitting until tubing bottoms and hold tubing
in this position until coupling nut is tightened.
Tighten coupling nuts for flexible tubing finger-
tight plus 4 to 4-1/2 turns or until 1-112 threads
arevisible on fitting. Torque coupling nuts on cop-
per tubing to 70 inch-pounds.
(3) Perform leak test of tubing connections
after installation (par. 3-6).
(4) After installation of flexible tubing (1,
15, and 17, fig. 4-6), wrap all exposed portians
of tubing, including coupling nuts, \vith silicone
tape MIL-l-46852, type 2, to a minimum thickness
of 0.080 inch. Tie tape at each end of tubing with
lacing tapc MPD 3305.

M-757 BRAKE AIR SYSTEM TEST I
------------------------
A-1. Purpose.
The purpose of this test is to verify the functional
adequacy of the M-757 tractor brake air supply sys-
tem when utilized with the EL. This test may be
perfonned by the user at the unit Ievel.
Note
Prior to perfonning this test, tractor air
compresSors must be adjusted to produce
a system pressure (measured on the cab
air pressurc gage) of 105 to 125 psi, in
accordance with instructions in TM 9-
2320-230-20.
A-2. Equipment Required.
(1) Adapter AN912-5
(2) Emergency air line coupler (glad band),
Berg Manufacturing Co., part number 10451EF
(3) Pressure gage NSN 6685-00-265-0909
(4) Stopwatch or wrist watch with sweep sec-
ondhand
A-3. Test Procedure.
(1) Start M-757 engine and set speed to
1800±50 rpm with dashboard throttle. Lock
dashboard . throttle by rotating clockwise to locked
position.
(2) Open emergency air line hose shutoff
valve at rear of tractor and observe that air is
exhausting from hose. Close valve. Repeat for fixed
emergency air line at rear of tractor.
(3) Open service air line hose shutoff valve
at rear of tractor and observe that no air is ex-
hausting from hose. Repeat for fixed service air
Une at rear of tractor.
(4) With service air line hose shutoff valve
open, depress foot brake pedal in cab and observe
that air is exhausting from service air line hose
at rear of tractor. Close valve. Repeat for fixed
service air line at rear of tractor.
(5) Shut off engine without moving the locked
dashboard throttle.
(6) Bleed brake air system by opening the
drain valves on each of the three reservoirs until
zero pressure shows on dashboard pressure gage
and no air can be heard escaping from open valves.
Close all valves.
Note
When installing gage, adapter, and glad
hand in (7) below, wrap pipe threads with
antiseize tape MIL-T -27730.
(7) Open emergency air line shutoff valve
under rear frame of tractor and attach pressure
gage, adapter, and glad hand to emergency air line
coupling. Observe zero reading on pressure gage.
(8) Start engine and stopwatch simultaneously
and record time required for pressure to reach 100
psi on test pressure gage; also observe that the
low air pressure warning buzzer in cab stops
buzzing at approximately 60 psi. A recorded time
greater than 2-1/2 minutes for pressure to reach
100 psi indicates unacceptable air system perform-
ance. If time is unacceptable, close valve, remove
test gage, and refer tractor to automotive main-
tenance personnel for repair. A recorded time of
2-1/2 minutes or less to reach 100 psi indicates ac-
ceptable air system performance. If time is accept-
able, proceed to (9) below.
(9) Stop engine and wait approximately one
minute. Verify that pressure gage in cab is within
plus or minus 15 psi of the test pressure gage.
(10) Simultaneously start the stopwatch and
record pressure reading on the test pressure gage.
After 10± 1 minute, record the pressure reading on
the test pressure gage. A pressure drop of more
than 15 psi indicates an unacceptable air system.
If air system is unacceptable, close valve, remove
test gage, and refer tractor to autornative main-
tenance personnel for repair. If pressure drop is
15 psi or less, the air system is acceptable. If ac-
ceptable, proceed to (11) below.
(11) Apply and hold foot brake and record
reading on test gage; continue holding foot brake
for 10 minutes; then record reading on test gage.
A pressure drop gre_ater than 20 psi from the last
recorded pressure reading indicates an unacceptable
air system. If air system is unacceptable, close
valve, remove test gage, and refer tractor to
autornative maintenance personnet for repair. A
pressure drop of 20 psi or less indicates an accept-
able air system. If acceptable, proceed to (12) be-
low.
(12) Open service air line hose shutoff valve
at rear of tractor. Insure that the johnny bar is
A·l
in the off position. Submerge service air line hose
gladhand in water and observe for air escaping
through gladhand opening. Any air leak from the
service gladhand, with no brakes applied, indicates
an unacceptable air system. If unacceptable, close
valve, remove test gage, and refer tractor to
