2When FMVSS 121 split brake system was introduced,some tandem
axles were equipped with power dividerlocks which were diseng
aged (released) with airpressure and spring controlled in lock or
engaged mode.Plumbing of the spring brakes and power divider lock
inthis condition eliminated spring brake units at the rearaxle. When
the spring brakes are applied, air is expelledfrom the power divider lock
allowing the spring pressureto lock up the differential and assist the spring
