Received some of my brake parts. Shipper mest up and forgot to send the hubs, bearings and seals. They are sending them in a separate package now. Another week or so until I see them.

I also got the CNG solenoid in. Looks real easy to convert over to brake fluid compatible seals. I think for the pilot seal I may try some of that black silicone. The rest are just o rings. Just need to get a few edpm ones and then do some testing

Got the axles convered over to disc brakes. Ran the stainless lines, one on each side of the trailer. Built a shelf up front to mount the actuator and capacitors or battery.

Been playing around with the location of the caps. Need to find me a small battery box to put them in and see where it fits. Would like it to sit right next to the actuator but if the box is too big I'll move it to the other side

Need to do some wiring and get it bled.

Ran a simple test to see if the solenoid valve would work as planned. The first test blew out the silicone seal I put in to replace the incompatible one. Ended up replacing it with a LDPE. Melted it in and sanded it down smooth. More durable and still seals good

Got out my battery charger to charge up the capacitors. With the solenoid powered the actuator and brakes run normally. Without power on the solenoid valve the actuator can pump up the brakes and the check function of the solenoid valve holds the pressure on the calipers

Without any gauge I have know way of really knowing what pressure is being held back or how fast it may leak back but I wanted to see it something simple could get me some results. Jacked up some of the tires to see if the brakes are holding. My next test will be a drag test when I get more of the wiring complete. Well after one hour I still couldn't turn the tires by hand and the rubber hoses where still stiff. Released the pressure by powering up the solenoid valve and I could hear the rush of brake fluid going back into the actuator reservoir

Looks good so far.

Now I just have a bunch of electrical to run. Redoing all of the marker, brake and turn signal lights. Started running EMT conduit and installing boxes at all of the locations where the lights are so when I get around to spray insulation the wires wont get buried and I can still get to them if I ever need to replace them

Ran the test again but this time I pulled it with my truck to drag the tires. Tested it at 15, 30 & 60 minutes. Each time the tire skidded across the pavement with zero rotation.
