Default Beringer parking brake

Bled my Beringer brakes today with masters horizontal going smooth using a little oil can to send the fluid from the calipers to the reservoir.

Parking brake question : does pullin the brake actuate the brakes or isncorrect procedure to push the toe brakes and the lock them withbthe parking brake?

Typically, while holding the toe brakes, then set the parking brakes. All the parking brakes does is to hold the current hydraulic pressure being applied. Be forewarned, most parking brakes will tend to bled over time and slowly release pressure. In other words, only use for short periods of time. i.e. long enough to get out of the aircraft and place chocks.

They dont publish it, but snug 13 in/lb should work.

Then, I don't know. Snug? Until it stops leaking? Nothing in the installation and maintenance manual.
