Manufacturer: BD Diesel
Manufacturer Part #: 1028050
Thoroughbred Diesel Part #: BDD1028050
Fitment Notes: Fits Most Diesels w/ 5" Exhaust Systems
The BD-Power 5" Remote Mount Exhaust Brake provides you with additional
safety, comfort, and control of your vehicle. Descending grades can be dangerous
and tricky, resulting in over heated service and trailer brakes, that leads
to brake fade, excessive wear, and costly unwarranted repairs. BD Engine brake
has been the industries time proven Variable Regulating Back-Pressure Exhaust
BD’s rugged cast-iron exhaust brake housing incorporates their exclusive
AlumiBronze bushing and positive sealing piston ring, no blind holes for carbon
and rust to form, and miles of leak free retarding. The stainless steel butterfly
shaft that has proven to stand up under the harsh, high-heat conditions of the
exhaust environment, the offset butterfly valve won’t stick, and has been
strategically placed in the elbow so that it won’t impede exhaust flow
when in the open position. The brake valve is actuated by an air cylinder.
How It Works:
Using BDs exclusive Variable butterfly Technology, providing peak retarding
power throughout the engines rpm range unlike some models that rely on a hole/orifice
within the butterfly to calibrate back-pressure only in the higher engine RPM.
Where It Mounts:
The universal in-line design mounts in the exhaust system between the engine
and muffler, DPF, or cat. BD’s Butterfly is constantly exercising thus
reducing the possibility of carbon and rust deposit forming that can cause premature
wear and binding which can happen with other brands. Furthermore, no maintenance
or lubrication is required providing miles of trouble free service.
Because this brake simply mounts in-line it can be used in a wide variety of
applications such as medium duty trucks, motorhomes, diesel pickups and more.
Some fabrication may be required for installation.
This will not work on a semi due to the loading spring not being big enough to slow that truck down. You can however get a kit with a larger loading spring that will work for your truck depending on the make and model of the truck.
