Fmc campaign no 290910001. Motor coach. Possibility that the master cylinderand hydrovacs are not compatible. If this condition exists the residualpressure left in the hydraulic brake line from the master cylinder to thehydrovac does not allow the hydrovac to completely release the brakes. Thevehicle can still move but if the brakes are still sufficiently applied theywill heat up and catch fire. (correct by inspecting and replacing thesubstitute hydrovacs).
