Section III. CARRIER AIRBRAKE SYSTEM
The carrier is equipped with service brakes on all six
wheels, controlled by the airbrake system. In this
airbrake system, the brakes are set by the power of
compressed air and set faster and more effectively than
manual footbrakes. The air system consists of an air
compressor, valves, reservoirs, brake chambers, and
connecting hoses, tubes, and fittings. The air
compressor furnishes the compressed air needed to
operate the brakes. The compressor is a two-cylinder,
reciprocating type located on the right-front side of the
engine, and driven by a V-belt from the engine
