M-38A1 HAND BRAKE WARNING

Post by Ben Dover » Sun Apr 15, 2018 4:13 pm

The M-38A1 Hand Brake is the "Internal Expanding/External Contracting" type and can roll your M-38A1 if it is used in emergency situations. The nature of that type brake on this model JEEP can grab and lock up the propeller shaft at highway speeds.
Remember to use it for parking only.
