ob1 Posted May 5, 2009 Share Posted May 5, 2009 As an answer to a problem, here was a suggestion on one of our forums in South Africa. Rhe problem is with a short wheel base as the 90, it is common to have a situations where cross axile wheels are in the air (Left front and Right back). As we know these wheels will spin helplessly when CDL is engaged. To cure this, ARB's or Detroits at the back at least. Now the price come into play, as well as change of handling etc. How about this: Electric shut off valves installed on each of the 4 breaking lines, that you can switch on from the cab. When the two wheels are in the air, you switch each valve on these on, and by gently appying the brakes, stop them spinning, transferring the power where it is needed. Preferably install a buzzer when the system is active to stop some interesting breaking later (forget to switch off) Anybody tried this yet? Possible? Possible pros or cons?
