It has been bought to my attention DOT is finding and failing buses due to improper Meritor Automatic Slack adjuster being found on buses.
Meritor Slack Adjusters are color coded as to brake chamber size, you [b]cannot go by spline and adjuster length when replaceing Meritor Automatic brake slacks. You must match color code on plunger to type of brake chamber and application for proper braking.
So PLEASE, anyone that has replaced any meritor auto slack adjusters please confirm that you have the proper adjuster installed for the proper application.
