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.

The Jake 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.
