Brake Control Adjustment
Place shift control lever (139) in P (park) position.
Push brake pedal (4) down as far as possible. Brake pedal should lock in down position.
If brake pedal (4) does not lock in down position, loosen two nuts on linkage rod (140). Adjust linkage rod until
brake pedal will lock in down position. Tighten nuts.
Adjust brakes only after making certain brake linkage alinement is correct.
Do not adjust travel of brake-apply-and-slack adjuster lever to less than 3 in. (76.2 mm) because of
possible damage to brakes.
Alinement of black mark (141) on brake rod and black mark (142) on brake adjustment gage indicates
that brakes are applied and in proper adjustment.
