GENERAL INFORMATION

Brake tubes are applied to transfer of brake fluid from the main brake cylinder to wheel brake cylinders. Connections of tubes with brake cylinders and the distributor ny devices are made by conical couplings. The ends of tubes are pressed out and have the cone-shaped form for the corresponding size of conical carving openings in brake cylinders or distributing devices.

Before sinking of the ends of tubes the lock nut which after a vvinchivaniye of a cone-shaped surface in the conical basis of a carving opening presses and pressurizes a tube is put on them.

Brake hoses carry out mobile communications between mobile and motionless parts of the car. For reduction of losses of brake fluid at removal of working brake cylinders clips for a perezhatiya of brake hoses are used.

At installation of a new brake tube or brake hose be convinced that they are densely fixed in arms and are at sufficient distance from the moving or heating up details.

Upon termination of installation check the level of brake fluid in the main brake cylinder and add it if necessary. Remove air from the brake system and carefully check work of brakes before beginning operation of the car.
