The engine brake comes factory-installed on the International LT Series longhaul vehicles, RH Series regional-haul trucks and International HV and HX Series severe-service vehicles.

International Trucks, and its A26 engine, are brands of Navistar Inc.

The Jacobs Engine Brake increases foundation brake life, improves drivability, and lowers the total cost of ownership of A26-powered International trucks, according to the Bloomfield, Conn.-based supplier. — Transport Topics
