Has anyone ever added an exhaust brake to this driveline, or have a bus that already has one? After using a RAM 2500 with a Cummins and exhaust brake to tow a car 2500 miles, I am sold on exhaust brakes, and wondering how hard it would be to retrofit one. I found a used one that is compatible with my engine:
JACOBS EXHAUST BRAKE DIESEL ENGINE TURBO PART# 025820 MODEL TM3126B CATERPILLAR | eBay
And some documentation on a unit that is similar (but not the same):
Looks like with the Allison trans I have it would require some additional wiring and programming, which I could do, but out here in the rockies it would definitely not be a bad idea! I will do some more research to see if it is feasible, but if anyone has any insight it would be much appreciated.
