Can the single reservoir brake system be converted to a dual system (yank from an A3)? I didn't see anything about this possible option in the word doc.Broken out from Clinto's Word doc.
Now, there is something we need to discuss here.
As this is a single reservoir brake system, ONE failure……. ONE blown wheel cylinder, ONE rotted brake hose, ONE failed master cylinder can render you totally brakeless. In a 13K lb. truck, that’s bad. The parking brake on these trucks is not designed to stop 13K lbs. of hurtling truck. Before ANY Deuce is put into motion, a COMPLETE inspection of the brake system is in order.
The A3 master/booster is incompatible with the clutch pedal and PTO of the A2.Can the single reservoir brake system be converted to a dual system (yank from an A3)? I didn't see anything about this possible option in the word doc.
I also saw in another thread on this site where a guy installed the brake system from a Ford F-450 (or a 550) on an A2 to give 6-wheel power disk brakes. No doubt an expensive modification, but it would be great to remove that potential hazard.The A3 master/booster is incompatible with the clutch pedal and PTO of the A2.
Your "easiest" bet is to source the parts from the later "airforce deuce" that had a split system using a different master, twin airpaks and a special bracket to mount it all without interfering with the clutch pedal or PTO.
