e. ALINEMENT AND ADJUSTMENT
Prior to performing any brake control alinement or adjustment, do the following:
Block vehicle in place and fully release vehicle brakes (refer to TM 9-2350-256-10).
Disconnect left and right brake lever rods from brake-apply levers.
Check each brake-apply lever (point 1). Each lever must be in its fully released position against its external
stop with no free travel. If not, use a 9/16-in. socket wrench and, while pushing in with socket wrench to
release adjustment bolt, turn bolt clockwise to position each lever against its stop.
Loosen nuts on linkage rods and insert 1/8-in.- (3.2-mm-) diameter locating pins at points indicated. Adjust rods as
necessary to permit pinning.
While brake control pedal is pinned, adjust brake control pedal height stop.
With brake-apply levers in fully released position against their stops, adjust rear brake rods equally at both ends
until clevis holes in rod ends aline with bottom holes in brake-apply levers. Connect rods to levers.
