Hello all. I am new to the forum and new to T's.This fall I purchased a 24 Touring. I have driven it around the local rural neighborhood several times,until the cold and snow.
It has Rocky Mountain brakes which stop well. The original Ford emergency brakes have been removed.The small drums and cam with lever are there. No brake rods or shoes.
Should I install the internal brakes,or is it ok with just the Rocky Mountain set up. I have read the R/M don't self energize in reverse. Thanks in advance,John
Most definately install the inside brakes. If you get caught in the rain, your Rockeys are pretty much useless till they dry out. You didn't say if the trans brake was still installed. Get it operational also.
How are the RM's actuated? They should be actuated from an equalizer connected to the brake pedal, either with an aadapter or special pedal. The Ford emergency brakes should have separate brake rods. You should have a total of 4 brake rods. Art in Pahrump
Most diffidently pull the hogs head cover and make sure brakeband is installed and working
