  • Brakes 52 8N
  • Does anyone have a sheet showing the brakes on my 8N? Mine are "gone". Wondering if I can adjust them and get some brakes back?
    Do the adjusters get frozen very much?

  • HiYa Jim-
    This may help, click on LINK below, from our HOW-TO's forum. We also have the 1949 8N MPC and a copy of the I&T F-04 Manual to download as well. The MPC shows the exploded view of the brakes/wheels and lists all the parts as well. The I&T manual has a section on R&R'n the brakes.

  • Thank you Tim for the help. this is quite good. I was thinking the adjuster was a wheel, with little teeth on it, and you turned it with a brake spoon, or screwdriver. i see now, the adjuster is on the opposite of the plate. Looks like a square that i may be able to turn.
    betting the darn things are probably frozen, as i am not sure it has ever been adjusted.

    SO, on to the garage, with tools in hand, and get to work.
    Thank you again,
