In a posting dated November 2, 2005 by Harlan Pudney, he warns of Meritor slack adjusters needing to be correctly specified for replacement by not only meeting the correct measurements, but also requiring that the correct plunger color is chosen for torque purposes. The plunger color is a direct correlation to the size of the brake chamber.

There is a mylar tag on each slack adjuster which shows the plunger color marked in the upper right hand corner, should the mylar tag be missing or not able to be read you can pull the rubber boot back and look to see the plunger color.

When replacing other manufactures auto slack adjusters you are also required to choose the proper plunger color. For that purpose we have poasted the Meritor slack adjuster section of their specification book on our website at www.newyorkbussales.com and on pages 9 thru 13 you can find the auto slack specifications.
