Also, get a manual from Essco. Google it. Hayes brakes. I’ve never seen a manual for just the brakes, but airframe manual gives a wee bit of info.
I adjust mine like old manual brake drums, tighten till they drag then back em off.
Taxi and adjust if needed.
Be careful, the manual brakes are grabby as heck. Mine consistently grab in left side no matter what I do.

Hi John, Doug from the B17 crew here. I’m at OSH and took a look at your beauty. Nice.
I run a OTW so can’t comment on yours but the members here are quite helpful.
I use 30w, was told by OTW guys.
