Re: The uprising of the "Green Machine"

This is the Mico brake that came with my bus. I'm not sure if it works of not but I'm going to try to get it hooked up. It works with the main brake system to lock the rear tire when energized. It has it's own pump and brake line the pumps fluid into an actuator to put pressure on the main brake system to work calipers.

The Mico brake that came with the bus. I'm going to install it that when you push the E brake the Mico automatically engages.It will lock up the rear calipers.
