The brakes are hydraulic with standard brake fluid to the front pair of wheels with a cylinder behind the towing ring for operation. Also a slave cylinder mounted on the front wheel station pushes a rod that is part of the main radar centre section, thus forming a rod system to the rear, which also has a rod and cup assembly to release the rear wheel assembly.

A hand brake lever works on the rear wheels for parking.

Hi Peakrec,

Your info on the brake system is interesting as I recall a self sealing coupling on the front bogie of the one that we had in for tidying up and repainting. Maybe there was a modification to some of them as sounds different. Going back nearly 30 years though.
