7-11. SERVICE BRAKE PAD MAINTENANCE (Contd)
Ensure brake pads are installed with linings facing rotor. Failure
to do this may cause injury to personnel or damage to equipment.
Position brake pads (1) to adapter (3).
When installing yoke and caliper, use a C clamp and a block of
wood to bottom out position in caliper if needed.
Apply sealing compound to threads of capscrews (7). Using crowfoot, install yoke (5) and caliper (4) to
adapter (3) with two washers (6) and capscrews (7). Tighten two capscrews (7) to 30-40 lb-ft (41-54 N.m).
FOLLOW-ON TASK: Install brake protection guards (para. 7-8.1) (M998A2 vehicle only).
To ensure proper brake function, replace brake pads in pairs on both
sides of axle.
Replace brake pads if thickness is less than 3/16 in. (4.8 mm)
and operation in wet and muddy conditions is expected.
Inspect brake pads (1) for glazing, oil saturation, or wear. If glazed, oil saturated, or if brake pad
thickness is less than 1/8 in. (3.2 mm), replace both pads (1) and pads from opposite caliper.
