transpixel 06.29.08 - WES LLOYD NOTICED THAT THE NIPPLE TO THE RETAINER VALVE WAS BROKEN.  NO AIR WAS LEAKING FROM THE BROKEN NIPPLE.  WHEN THE NIPPLE AND THE STREET ELL TO THE RETAINER WERE REMOVED, THEY WERE PLUGGED BY MUD DAUBBER NESTS.  WHEN THE BROKEN PIECES WERE REPLACED, THE BRAKES WORKED PROPERLY.  THE LAST TIME THE CAR WAS RUN, THERE WAS AN AIR LEAK AND THE CAR WAS BAD ORDERED.  THE WASP NESTS, BUILT AFTER THE BREAK OCCURRED, HID THE DEFECT. transpixel
