Maybe everone knows about this, but if you take a nylon wire tie and strap it onto the airchamber push rod and tighten it so the long end is in line with the airchamber face, it will indicate the brake stroke when brakes are set/applied. This allows for a quick visual on how good your brake adj is. A normal 30 can has a 2" usable stroke. When the parking brake is set, you should see far less then 2" between the wire tie and the airchamber face. A fresh adjustment is about 1/2 to 3/4"..... Keep um safe
