Descending slopes with trailers present risks, causing overheating in brakes and potential issues. BD Engine Brake provides a reliable solution with its proven Variable Regulating Back-Pressure Exhaust Brake. Easily controlled through an illuminated on/off toggle or an optional rocker switch for manual transmissions, the BD brake interfaces seamlessly with the engine's electronic idle verification board for rapid engagement. Installation flexibility is offered through BD's turbo-mount or inline design, featuring a robust cast-iron housing, alumibronze bushing, and a positive-sealing piston ring, preventing carbon and rust accumulation for sustained leak-free retarding.
The brake's actuation involves an air cylinder for newer models or a powerful three-inch vacuum cylinder for earlier ones. The durable included air compressor serves additional applications such as air horns or bags. Pre-2006 automatic trucks benefit from BD's programmable AutoLoc and PressureLoc kits, enhancing torque converter clutch engagement for improved retarding and reduced transmission temperatures. Every BD Brake kit includes necessary components, mounting hardware, and instructions, with select models featuring an EGT port for added functionality.
