Brake SystemsStreaming Video - 2006
In order to properly inspect and repair a car's brakes, students need to understand brake components. This program illustrates typical brake systems, demonstrating the parts and principles involved with detailed live action footage and animated diagrams. Covering the basics of hydraulic force and its applications, the program looks at the master cylinder, bushings, push rod, brake pedal, wheel cylinder, and all other essentials. Different systems are clearly explained, with a section on drum brakes and another on disc brakes. Students will gain a solid understanding of how friction is applied to brake shoes in drum brake systems, and how the brake pad, piston, and spinning rotor function in disc brakes. Correlates to all National CTE Organizational Standards (including the provisions of the Perkins Act)
