Rogerck Posted February 15, 2014 Report Share Posted February 15, 2014 We have about 60 hours on our 06SW, with tundra tires, since the Matco brakes were installed. The brakes still do not have the stopping authority I would expect. With full braking pressure I can not get the wheels to lock (as a test) and the plane starts to creep at 3400 rpm run up. The original Marc brakes actually had better stopping power during taxi and run up operations than the Matco's. The brakes have been bled several times (with a pressure bleeding pump) and no bubbles can be seen in any of the lines. The brake handle pressure is firm, not mushy. The brakes have been "broken in" by high speed taxi braking in accordance with Matco's instructions. This has been done three times. The discs are clean and dry. After the initial installation, there was a small seepage at the left bleed fitting. Discs have been cleaned with solvent several times. The brakes do not pull to one side as might be expected if the disc or pads were contaminated. Any suggestions, or am I expecting too much braking authority?
