Jacobs Vehicle Systems announces the availability of the engine brake model 5783A as standard equipment on the International A26 engine.
Jacobs has supplied a compression release engine brake for International Truck’s 13-liter engine since 2009. Jacobs says its 5783A engine brake increases foundation brake life, improves driveability, and lowers the total cost of ownership of A26-powered International trucks equipped with this engine brake.
“Over the past decade, Jacobs has partnered with International Truck to provide the end user with better driving experiences,” says Steve Ernest, vice president of engineering and business development, Jacobs Vehicle Systems. “Today, we are excited to be a standard feature on the International A26 engine, complementing their technologies for the on-highway, severe duty, and vocational segments.”
The Jacobs’ engine brake is now standard on the International A26 engine and comes factory installed on International LT Series long-haul vehicles, International RH Series regional haul vehicles, and International HV and HX Series severe vehicles, the company says.
