Importance of Brake Adjustment

Importance of Brake Adjustment

Brake adjustment is one of the most important adjustments of the motor apparatus. It is vitally important that both brakes should take hold with equal effort, a condition that reduces the chances of skidding. Also the driver must be taught in applying the brakes to do so intermittently; first on, then off, then on again. This is the way the locomotive engineer does with his rail-bed vehicle and the lesson is valuable on the road. While the brakes are being applied the clutch should be engaged.
