INSTALLATION AND SERVICE INSTRUCTIONS
BE SURE TO READ GENERAL INSTALLATION GUIDELINES SHEET (81-600-001) BEFORE PROCEEDING
MICO Brake Lock is not to be used if four wheel lock up is desired, or with split or dual brake systems. If four wheel lockup is desired, we recommend using our MICO Dualock or Dual 690 Brake Lock System.
MOUNTING BRAKE LOCK
Tubing is not supplied because of the variation in each installation. Install tubing using shortest and most protected route. Use same size tubing when replacing a line, unless otherwise specified.
Thoroughly inspect port threads for any foreign material after removing vinyl plugs.
After installation, Brake Lock may contain air. The air, if not removed, will cause an ineffective and perhaps inoperative brake system.
Mount the Brake Lock on the frame near the brake line using existing hole in the frame if possible. Many times a line supporting bracket will be located in this area. This bracket may be removed and the lock mounted in it's place. The lock will then support the lines.
A good ground is needed between the Brake Lock mounting bracket and vehicle chassis. If necessary, scrape the paint off vehicle frame where Lock is mounted.
MOUNTING TOGGLE SWITCH AND DASH PLATE
The switch and plate are typically mounted to the dash. Toggle switch requires a 1/2" diameter hole.
All flared hydraulic line connections must be torqued to specifications listed below and be free of leakage.
CONNECTING BRAKE LINES
For all brake systems in use today, including anti-lock, the MICO Brake Lock must be installed between last hydraulic component in supply line and wheels.
When installing fittings in Brake Lock Assembly, always hold lock on Hex nut or fitting nearest fitting being tightened. Never hold onto opposite end. Failure to follow this procedure may result in valve body fracture not covered by warranty.
The line from pressure source side must be installed in the end stamped INLET and line from wheels installed in end with pressure switch.
CONNECTING HORN RELAY AND LOW pressure WARNING SWITCH
Replacement Switch Kits:
Depending on the electrical load of the warning device, connections can be made in two ways.
(see figure 4)
To utilize the vehicle's horn relay or an auxiliary relay make connection as shown. (See Figure 4).
Connect the remaining LPWS terminal to ground THROUGH the dashboard toggle switch as shown.
See General Guidelines Sheet (Form No. 81-600-001) for bleeding Guidelines.
The hydraulic brake system must be bled whenever any line has been disconnected. There are two methods of bleeding hydraulic systems, pressure bleeding and manual bleeding hydraulic systems, pressure bleeding and manual bleeding. Both methods are acceptable and adequate but pressure bleeding is recommended if the equipment is available. Follow bleeding procedure and instructions as specified by vehicle manufacturer.
Use only Brake Fluid SAE J1703 or DOT Brake Fluid specified by vehicle manufacturer. Never use brake fluid that has been drained from vehicle.
If the electrical load of the horn or warning device exceeds 10 amp do not connect the Low pressure Warning Circuit directly to battery current. A horn re-lay must be used to prevent damage to pressure switch contacts.
(see figure 5)
When horn draw does not exceed 10 amps the vehicle horn relay may be by-passed. (See Figure 5).
Before moving vehicle, a firm pedal must be achieved when Brake Lock is in full release position. If a firm pedal is not achieved, repeat bleeding procedure for Brake Lock and brake system until a firm pedal is achieved. Make several brake applications with vehicle stationary and check fittings for leaks.
Brake lock is not field serviceable - do not attempt disassembly. If Brake Lock is damaged by contaminants or impaired in any way return to MICO, Inc. for reconditioning or replacement and service other components accordingly.
*None of these conditions affect release after application. The Brake Lock cannot be applied if any of these conditions occur.
