Exhaust Brake kit for Toyota Landcruisers.
Construction and Operation.
The EBS EXHAUST BRAKE is a vacuum operated butterfly valve fitted into the exhaust system as a compact, independent unit.
The butterfly and shaft are stainless steel with Nicrofer bushes making the EBS brake strong and robust for arduous conditions.
When activated, a back pressure is created during braking using the retardant effect of the engine in addition to the foot operated brakes.
An electronic solenoid controls the vacuum operation and is actuated by twin micro switches on the clutch and accelerator pedals. As the driver's feet come off the pedals, the EBS brake is activated instantly. With an over-ride switch on the dash,the driver has total control at all times.
Kits are specifically designed for the Toyota Land Cruiser, although they can be adapted to suit any small diesel 2, 4, or 6 wheel drive or light truck, either naturally aspirated or turbo.
2.5 inch or 3 inch Diameters
12 or 24 Volt Electrical Systems
As with any accessory correct driver use will increase all round benefits, reduce vehicle accidents and extend brake life.
