Effective with the machines listed in Chart 1, current production machines have a revised brake pipe arrangement on the front and rear axles. The revised arrangement has fewer fittings and is less prone to leakage.
A new 8Q-6833 Retrofit Kit is available to install the new pipe arrangement on earlier machines currently in service, if desired. Chart 2 lists the parts included in the 8Q-6833 Retrofit Kit. Use the following installation procedure and Illustration 1 for locating and installing the retrofit kit.
1. Remove and discard the steel pipes and tee fitting from both axles, and the hose from the front axle. Retain the hose from the rear axle.
2. Install the new pipes, tee fittings and rear axle hose as shown in the illustration.
3. Bleed the brake system as detailed in the service manual.
