Air Gauges & Governor Cutoff

  • Chock the wheels if necessary
  • Inspect air gauge(s) working
  • Inspect air pressure builds to governor cutoff (approximately 120 – 140 psi)

” I am going to inspect that my air gauges and governor cutoff are working. Before starting the engine I would make sure the bus does not move while in neutral and the parking brake is released. If it does I would chock the wheels.
{if necessary pump brakes until pressure below governor cut in}
The air gauges are rising indicating that the system is building pressure. I will continue to observe the gauges to assure the governor is working and cuts off at approximately 120 – 140 psi.
{Turn engine off}
