AIRCRAFT BRAKE INSTALLATION AND USE
Excessive brake pedal pressure, especially in aircraft equipped with a tail wheel,can cause the aircraft to lose control or overturn. In addition, taxiing with continued brake pedal pressure can result in loss of brake function, damage to the brake assemblies or even fire. The above conditions can possibly result in death, bodily injury, or property damage.
When installing brake linings be sure to check the aircraft's maintenance manual for the proper torque value of back plate bolts. Over torquing can damage brake cylinders. After installing new brake linings or new brake discs the installer must confirm that the wheel assemblies rotate freely while properly jacked above the ground. If they do not turn freely the aircraft must not be returned to service until the problem has been resolved. Failure to do so can cause loss of aircraft control, reduced take off performance, or fire, possibly resulting in death, bodily injury, or property damage.
