Section II. BRAKE ASSEMBLY
the brake shoes are returned to their normal position by
the brake springs (5, fig. 7-2). This action allows the
synchromatic windmill assembly and pump to operate.
The brake assembly (fig. 7-2) is attached directly to the
spray fluid pump assembly (8). The brake assembly
consists of a pair of brake shoes (4) contained inside a
brake drum (2). Actuation of the brake arm by the brake
lever (16, fig. 410) causes the brake shoes to expand
