SAB brake adjusters for coaches

Postby 27010 » 01 Feb 2012 23:23

I wonder if anyone here has the instructions for setting these up as our coach team does not have the required document.

We also would like to know who can overhaul these.

The only thing you need to set is the clearance between the brake cylinder end of the adjuster and the 'gate' which regulates when it operates to take up the slack. This distance varies between different types of vehicle and brake arrangement. Wabtec can overhaul these adjusters, I'll find out what we pay.
