A stock automatic
equipped Ford truck, prior to 1999, will disengage the convertor
clutch when the accelerator pedal returns to idle, the brake
pedal is touched or when the truck accelerates. Since 1999,
the convertor clutch will remain engaged until the brake pedal
is touched. When the convertor clutch is not engaged the engine
free wheels and the engine rpm falls to idle with no transfer
of retarding horsepower being achieved. BD's BrakeLoc will
maintain convertor lock up until a pre-selected vehicle speed.
While the BrakeLoc is an economical alternative to an exhaust
brake, it is NOT intended as a substitute. For quicker, more
effective braking, we recommend the vacuum-actuated BD Brake
exhaust brake system, which utilizes their Variable Orifice
Technology, and won't stick like the stock heat riser can.
