The object of this report is to review the examination and tests made on two hydraulic brake fluids and six defective wheel brake mechanisms submitted by Aberdeen Proving Ground at the request of ORDTB-Fuels and Lubricants, with special consideration to the possibility of galvanic corrosion as a cause of failure of brake mechanisms. It is recommended that some cnsideration be given to the use of a non-gumming inhibited mineral oil as a brake fluid and that better mechanical protection against moisture and dust be given to operating ends of wheel brake cylinders.
