MODERN FOUR-WHEEL MECHANICAL BRAKING-SYSTEM 1 250044

Because of the increase of traffic on the highways in the last few years, retardation has become the most vital function of car operation; and safe retardation is as necessary as rapid retardation. Good brakes are as essential as a good engine. Becoming convinced of the many attendant advantages of four-wheel brakes, the authors began an intensive study of braking, the results of which are outlined.
The features of construction of the Bendix-Perrot standardized four-wheel braking-system, which include: (a) standardized and improved controls, (b) standardized brakeshoes and (c) a simplified brake-operating layout or hook-up, are described and illustrated and the advantages to be obtained with these improvements are summarized.
