How to install brake linings

  1. 1. HOW TO REPLACE ORGANIC (NON-METALLIC) AIRCRAFT BRAKE LININGS STEP 1 <ul><li>When you have finished viewing this presentation, use the “CAPS” program found on the home page of www.apex- inc .biz . Select the proper brake linings for your aircraft. </li></ul>Tools needed to perform this task can be found under “ Aircraft Brake Tools & Supplies ” towards the bottom right of the web page.
  2. 2. STEP 2 <ul><li>Two types of bolts are used to attach the back plate to the brake assembly/caliper. </li></ul><ul><li>1. Drilled bolts, which require safety wire. </li></ul><ul><li>2. Patch lock bolts (nylon material embedded in threaded end) which require replacement after 6 or 8 installations or whenever the bolt can be run in past the locking feature by use of fingers only. </li></ul>
  3. 3. STEP 3 <ul><li>Remove bolts from brake assembly/caliper by removing safety wire if necessary and slide brake assembly off alignment pins. *DO NOT remove brake assembly from hydraulic line. </li></ul><ul><li>Remove pressure plate from brake assembly. </li></ul>
  4. 4. STEP 4 <ul><li>Remove brake linings from pressure/back plates by punching out the old rivets using the 824 brake rivet tool or equivalent. </li></ul><ul><li>Clean pressure and back plate surfaces of dirt, grease, etc. before installing new linings. </li></ul>
  5. 5. STEP 4 (Continued) <ul><li>Inspect pressure plate and back plate for excessive corrosion, visible damage or excessive warping. CAUTION: Pressure plate should not be used if warped in excess of .010 inch flatness. Excessive warping can result in brake drag, especially when new disc and linings are installed. </li></ul><ul><li>For excessive warping, use the draw flattening technique to remove warpage. </li></ul>
  6. 6. STEP 4 (Continued)
  7. 7. STEP 5 <ul><li>Align new replacement lining on pressure/back plates and install rivets using rivet set tool. </li></ul>
  8. 8. STEP 6 <ul><li>Check to be sure lining is tight and movement free and that no distortion of parts has occurred. </li></ul><ul><li>When tubular rivets are used, splits may result from the clinching (hammering) operation. </li></ul><ul><li>CAUTION: Check for acceptable rivet installation. </li></ul>
  9. 9. STEP 6 (Continued)
  10. 10. STEP 7 <ul><li>Clean dirt, grease, etc. from caliper and portion of piston extending beyond caliper face, push piston back into caliper. </li></ul><ul><li>Lubricate alignment pins with dry film lubricant (silicone spray.) DO NOT use grease or oil. </li></ul><ul><li>Slide pressure plate with new linings over alignment pins and install caliper. </li></ul>
  11. 11. STEP 8 <ul><li>Install back plate attachment bolts and washers into caliper. </li></ul><ul><li>Install back plates between brake disc and wheel/tire and start back plate attachment bolts and washers into back plates. </li></ul>
  12. 12. STEP 9 <ul><li>Using the CAPS program, you can get your brake assembly part number and then use the torque value chart to torque the brake assembly bolts. </li></ul><ul><li>If the bolts used are drilled, safety wire the bolts with .032 stainless steel safety wire as shown. </li></ul><ul><li>Now may be a good time to check the brake hydraulic fluid level. </li></ul>
  13. 13. STEP 9 (Continued)
  14. 14. ORGANIC (NON-METALLIC) AIRCRAFT BRAKE LININGS INSTALLATION COMPLETE <ul><li>Make appropriate logbook entry of the work performed. The FAA has a sample logbook entry shown in the free video on our home page at www.apex- inc .biz . </li></ul><ul><li>This presentation contains information that is consistent with FAR 65.83 “Recent Experience Requirements.” </li></ul><ul><li>Please visit www.apex- inc .biz to view a free video that reviews Basic Maintenance for Pilots and Technicians as part of FAR 43 and 91.
