Not all K brake installations were the same. I’ve seen photos with the K brake cylinder pointed out towards the end sill and the opposite, with the cylinder pointing towards the slope sheet.

There are pictures of hoppers with K brakes on the web and a couple of drawings that indicate copyright, but I have not found any that can be used for a clinic on brakes.
Any help would be appreciated
