clutch in the planetary group of the transmission. The
parking brake is made up of piston (1), plates (4) and
discs (5). Discs (5) are connected to ring gear (8) of the
No.7 clutch. Plates (4) are connected to housing (6) by
pins and can not turn. Ring gear (8) is connected to the
pinion in the differential. Lever (11) is connected to
another lever inside of the transmission housing. This
lever fits in a slot in piston (1).
In the PARK position, no pressure air is available to
rotochamber (12). The spring in the rotochamber will
move lever (11) up. This causes the lever inside of the
transmission to turn piston (1). As the piston turns, balls
(10) move up the taper of inserts (9). The piston is
moved into contact with plates (4) and discs (5). The
piston pushes the plates and discs against housing (6).

When the safety lever is pushed to the PARK position,
pressure air in air compartment (4) is released through
port (5) to the exhaust port in the quick release valve.
