The brake applying mechanism, which is asso

ber >38, will now be described. As best shown in
Figure l, one end of the brake band I8 carries
45 a lug 68 and the other end carries a similar lug

The lug 6| at the other end of the brake band

the lug 68Yand similarly includes a lug section
83 with pairs of 'webs84 and 85 on opposite sides
thereof, the webs 85 reinforcingthe lug andserv
ing to distribute the brake-applying stresses and
prevent excessive Wear which sometimes occurs 30
at»V the heel of ordinary lugs. 'I'he lug section 83
of the Vlug 6|, like the lug 68, is'V also .provided
with openings 81 and 88 at the opposite corners

illustrated in Figure 2, the adjusting bolt 61 is
not disposed in either of these openings.
« The upper surface of the lug‘l section 83 in- Fig

tion 63, and receives a head 98 which has a
curved lug-engaging surface 9| (Figure l) and 40
is apertured to receive the upper end of the J'-bolt
12. The lug section 83 -is also apertured to re
ceive the J-bolt. Thev hook end 94 _ofthe J-bolt

' 'I'he operation of the structure so- Vfar described
is substantially as follows:
' »
Thesprings 19 and II 8r act >against the~anchor- 75

end disposed in the opening 5| of the anchoring
arm 39, the opening 5| now~being on the outer

pull is exerted on the-rod |02., ’the cam‘plates 96
and 91 are swung about their pivotal' connection
with the J-bolt and the linksv |05 «and |06 »and

threaded endwould'be disposed in the outer
opening 5| in 'the'anchoring arm 39.
In both ofthe arrangements described above,
the'` brake applying and Yoperating Amechanism
has beendisposed at the right side of the trans
head 90 which occurs when the' brake is applied',
but the head 90, at the same time, serves to keep
the lug from cocking out of the properlpositions.
The reaction of the swinging of thecam plates 96
and 91 acts directly through the J-bolt 12 to- exert
an upward .pull on the lower lug 60, thero‘cking mission |. If desired, according to the present
connection between the lower end of the bolt ’12: invention, Íthe >brake operating and .applying
and the lug, by virtue of the relativelyfheavy mechanism` may be disposed-at the left side of
