1153 Triangular front to rear brake split

This hydraulic pipe line system uses front calipers which have two independent pairs of cylinders, and at the rear conventional calipers or drum brakes. Each fluid pipe line circuit supplies half of each front caliper and one rear caliper or drum brake cylinder. Thus a leakage in one or the other hydraulic circuits will cause the other three pairs of calipers or cylinders or two pairs of caliper cylinders and one rear drum brake cylinder to provide braking equal to about 80% of that which is possible when both circuits are operating. When one circuit is defective, braking is provided on three wheels; it is then known as a triangular split.
