MANUAL BRAKE INSPECTION PROCEDURES. VOLUME II. FINAL TECHNICAL REPORT

This program investigated performance and nonperformance brake inspections with the object of replacing the current method for performing these inspections with less expensive ways, more suitable for small garages. The performance part of the program culminated in the construction of a torsion bar dynamometer that can meet all legislated requirements for VIU performance inspections, previously only possible on machines of more costly design. The nonperformance investigation resulted in the identification of recommended nonperformance inspection items.
