    Procrastinating on the heater core. With such nice cold dry weather I decided to bring firewood in. My Wife reminded me of the incident that the brakes went out. We were on I 77 coming into Charlotte NC. I went for the brakes on an M1008 while towing another M1008 and when I hit the brakes the rod going to the brake booster was swinging from the pedal. I had just bought the truck that day (DRMO)and it was missing a few part parts here and there. I did get it running and all hooked up. I was along the road for a couple hours switching the batteries to the other truck to do the towing. That was one of them my, my, my days. Very close call at 55mph. Have a Great Day. That constitutes and emergency brake. Throwing it in park had no reaction. Lesson learned that day was look up under the dash board. that had a bolt with a loose nut holding the pin to the pedal and no tab for brake lights or safety fall out.

    That doesn't make it an emergency brake. It was not designed for emergency use. I have used a wrench as a hammer in an emergency. It got the job done. It was still a wrench.

    Using the wrong term encourages people to forget (or to never learn!) the correct use, which is for PARKING.

    Do tell how I would have stopped without it? Parking brake/Emergency brake. Both the same and people get the meaning. I did not misuse the Parking Brake/ Emergency Brake. I used it in an emergency situation and it stopped me. Throwing it in park would have been a massive fail. I don't want to get in a debate over such a thing. And while I was outside I did look at an M1009 backing plate. No cut outs. I don't think they even though about making them. Never seize the axle hub face and put the drum back on.

    Have a Great Day. I now have climate control back in my M1028. I can either freeze or stay warm/hot at the flick of a switch. Climate control.

    Climate control in a car is the system that keeps the temperature inside the car even and comfortable. This includes the car's heating and cooling systems as well as their controls
