brakes are no biggie, in reality you probably won't have to touch them yourself but if you do........ there's just one nut (no, not bt) tighten it all the way (clockwise) then slacken off half a turn.
You will need to learn how the airbrake system works but again, it's no biggie, the test is easy. In NS its 20 multiple choice questions and you have to get 16 right.
There are no stupid questions Billy.

Spot the mistake

Never heard of Rockwell and never come across any brakes that needed adjusting anti-clockwise. Although the vast majority of brakes are adjusted clockwise, i concede that i haven't come across them all and that there might be some the other way round.

Most are ASAs anyway now, aren't they mate, so shouldn't need to be messed with.
Just thought that, after what Gremmie said, he might have learned on one of the other kind.

Oh you two clowns:curse::curse: OK brake adjusting for Real Estate Agents
Lesson 1, To say adjust CLOCKWISE is a bit silly,why???? Andie take a look at various tralors and notice the different methods of mounting the brake pods...!!!!
ie. on top of the axel facing forward,on top facing backward,slung inder the axel facing forward,slung under facing to the rear? now tell me which one's you do clockwise???????????????
You adjust the brakes so that the pushrod goes into the chamber not clock or anti clockwise as depending on how they are mounted differs.
As to Rockwell ASA's use screw driver to pull out the pin and turn the square nut Did i pass?????

RIGHT YOU SCROATS !!!!!!!!!!!

Uncle Dave says what the F**K has this all got to do wi completing log books.

From what I remember when I was a 16 yr old kid on a YTS I had to jack up the trailer tighten the nut on the slack adjuster till the wheel stopped spinning then losen until it just spun freely....is that correct or do you not jack it up anymore.???????

Apart from then and after 22yrs as an Army driver never bloody done it ever again...Did lose my brakes once coming into Hameln loaded with a Challanger 2 (75 ton) with a near on 90 degree turn at the traffic lights at the bottom of the hill......that was fun.............NOT. Bit of wee wee came out.
