SECURING BRAKE LINES TO CHASSIS

164-001-2024

February 27, 2024

 

Purpose

This document outlines repairing a specific list of units that may have brake lines unsecured to the chassis.
The fix includes attaching P-clamps to secure brake lines to the chassis.

 

Resources Required

  • Self-tapping screws, PN 2024006671
  • Rubber P-clamps, PN 2023136417
  • Cordless or electric drill or screw gun
  • 3/16″ drill bit

 

Instructions

1. Identify manufacturing defect on the inside of the driver’s side frame rail, just under the rear cab mount (Figs. 1A and 2A).

 

2. Drill pilot hole in the chassis (3/16” drill in one place) for a self-tapping screw between the brake lines.
This will be between the two brake line couplers, 4” from top of frame rail and 4.5” from the front of square hole (Fig. 3).

NOTE: Picture is from the inside of the drivers side frame rail.

3. Attach P-clamps around each line making sure the holes are to the center (Fig. 4A).

 

4. Screw the self-tapping screw through both holes of the brake line clamps (Figs. 5A and 6A).

 

NOTE: Fig. 7 shows the finished repair.

NOTE: Make sure the brake lines that run over the driver’s side frame rail are not touching the frame rail.

Fig. 8 shows the correct placement of the brake lines. If the brake lines touch the frame rail, the lines could develop a hole causing loss of brake pressure.
