Rudder and Brake Systems - Section 33
I finished building the hand brakes and sent them off to the powder coater. I have change the routing of the brake line to facilitate the parking brake after the hand brake and before the mains. This will be a serial line from the resivoir to left rudder/brake pedals, to the hand brakes, to the parking brakes, to the main wheel brakes.
Close up of the brake fittings which is between the spars to keep it out of the way. From here they are routed aft to the parking brake. Note, we didn't much care for the plastic brake line that Van's provides, so we change over to teflon stainless line from TS Flightlines and we are happy we did. The quality is much better and they are less prone to leaks.
