T244 brakes

Postby woodleykevin » Tue May 21, 2019 7:06 am

Hi everyone
First post!
I'm hoping someone can help me with this, when I press down the service brake, air comes out of the front yellow palm valve, not sure if a valve has gone or something was knocked in transport.

Thanks.

Kevin

Hi Kevin, I have a T244 and my gut feeling is either the palm is knackered, or maybe some sort of relief valve is a bit dicky when pressure is added....

A truck garage should be able to sort that quite easily, and as it is a brake issue, the sooner the better....

You may wish to post the question on the FaceBook page below, as there are a few DAF qualified mechanics there, like Sam, who is also on this forum but may not be that regular now as the forum is not sending out notifications....

LEYLAND DAF T244 GROUP....Aka The Duff Club

What have you got the truck for, apart from having a great deal of fun! If it is for conversion to a Motor Caravan, then stay on this forum as the knowledge base here is second to none! But please bear with the forum as it is being worked on......

Hello,

Brian pointed me in this direction.

With air coming from the yellow coupling on the FRONT.. Do not drive the truck. Your braking effort will be severely be decreased.

Im got to suggest that the double check valve has failed.
I believe its up near the brake pedal valve. Should be 2 next to eachother.

all valves will have a part number attached. if not. take one off and nip down the local truck factors, replace them both, youll need some thread seal too.

they may not have them instock due to being imperial(modern trucks are all metric)

oh and post a picture up, id quite like to know the part number,

taa

I was having a problem with air coming out the Palm valve on the front of my wagon, it was suggested that I replace the the check valves, these have been sent off and refurbished, they have been re fitted, and you guessed it, still leaking air, any ideas what it could be?

There is a big "O" ring in there, behind the cover, could it be damaged/worn/missing?

The Palm couplings are cheap enough, maybe just replace it?

Some say bin them and fit the new versions.... I like the palms so am leaving mine in place...

Maybe go post on the T244 FB site, heaven forbid....

Good luck.
