There is a lot of information on pinion brakes in this from the Deuce forum.Oh yeah i remember seeing brakes like that on mud trucks. I think they do that as the wheel brakes usually are wet and full of dirt. That sounds like a great option. I gotta google that.
Consider the rear diff ratio of 6.44:1. This makes a pinion brake useful only for very low speeds (which is where you see them used....)Hm. They ain't all that and a bag of chips. Mainly, I was curious about them as a better parking brake and *maybe* an e-brake in case of service brake system failure.
I speculate that manufacture dates on the data plates were occasionally changed when going through rebuild. I've seenSpeaking of 809 , where can i find definete information about the model years. I just saw a 1988 (whaaaaa???) M813A1.
someone said something about models being still produced after the model ended. I can see that happening for a year maybe . But 6 years?
