Actually, there's no need to cage the rear brake chambers before adjusting the slack. Just chock the wheels and release the parking brakes. This will 'cage' the brakes and allow proper adjustment of the slack.

But yes, those springs are strong enough to stop a bus and can kil!

Nice build!

Nice work on the build. Looks like you have the perfect shop to work on the bus in with all the tools needed. Great work!
