Series 60

Section 1.36 Jake Brake

Section 1.36
Jake Brake

The engine brake has been designed to fit on the Series 60 engine with no additional valve cover spacers. There are three styles of valve covers for the Series 60 engine. On engines equipped with a two-piece aluminum valve cover, it is NOT necessary to remove the lower valve cover to install the engine brake. However, one style of upper valve cover may require modification at the breather housing location (inside) for engine brake clearance.‪

The model, part number and serial number are located on the nameplates at the top of each housing. See Figure "Nameplate Location on Housing" . ‪

Table 3. Jake Brake Model Information

All slave piston adjustments shown here are current as of the date of this manual and supersede all previous adjustments.
XXXX = Model numbers to be determined.

Note: All engines built after serial number 06R0004455 have the correct engine parts for engine brake installation. The model numbers have changed because of design changes in the engine brakes.

Note: All Series 60 engines with serial numbers 06R0004455 or higher are Jake Brake ready. Do not install a Jake Brake on engines with lower serial numbers.

Effective August 10, 2000, Model 795 Jake Brakes are used on all Series 60 engines requiring an engine brake.

Former Jake Brake production models for the Series 60 engine were the 760A (which replaced model 760), 760B, 765, 765A, 770 and 790.

Detroit Diesel engine model Nos. 6067GU28 and 6067GK28 are for bus/coach applications. Due to interference fits on some coach chassis, a two-housing Jake Brake kit may be required. Contact your Detroit Diesel Distributor for information on these kits.‪

Jake Brake® is a registered trademark of Jacobs Vehicle Systems. J-Lash™ is a trademark of Jacobs Vehicle Systems.

Energizing the engine brake effectively converts a power-producing diesel engine into a power-absorbing air compressor. This is accomplished through motion transfer using a master-slave piston arrangement which opens cylinder exhaust valves near the top of the normal compression stroke, releasing the compressed cylinder charge to exhaust. See Figure "Jake Brake Schematic" .‪

Figure 2. Jake Brake Schematic

The blowdown of compressed air to atmospheric pressure prevents the return of energy to the engine piston on the expansion stroke, the effect being a net energy loss, since the work done in compressing the cylinder charge is not returned during the expansion process.‪

Exhaust blowdown occurs as the energized solenoid valve permits engine lube oil to flow under pressure through the control valve to both the master piston and the slave piston. See Figure "Jake Brake Schematic" .‪

Oil pressure causes the master piston to move down, coming to rest on the injector rocker arm roller.‪

The injector rocker arm begins its travel as in the normal injection cycle, moving the master piston upward and directing high-pressure oil to the slave piston. The ball check valve in the control valve traps high-pressure oil in the master-slave piston system. ‪

High pressure oil causes the slave piston to move down, momentarily opening the exhaust valves, while the engine piston is near its top-dead-center position, releasing compressed cylinder air to the exhaust manifold.‪

At the bottom of its stroke, the slave piston separates from the valve in the slave piston adjusting screw, allowing high pressure oil to flow into the accumulator. This reduces the pressure in the high pressure circuit, permitting the slave piston to retract and the exhaust valves to close in preparation for the normal exhaust valve cycle. The oil pressure reserved in the accumulator ensures that the hydraulic circuit is fully charged for the next cycle. Compressed air escapes to the atmosphere, completing a compression braking cycle.‪

The Jake Brake is electronically controlled. Jake Brake control system wiring will vary depending on the vehicle manufacturer. For a general overview of the Jake Brake, see Figure "Typical Model 760, 765, or 770 Jake Brake Assembly" and see Figure "Typical Model 790/795 Jake Brake Assembly " .‪

Section 1.36.5
Installation of Model 760, 765, or 770 Jake Brake

Install the model 760, 765, or 770 Jake Brake as follows:‪

Note: The following procedures apply to Model 760, 765, and 770 Jake Brake. For Model 790/795 Jake Brake installation procedures, refer to "1.36.8 Installation of Model 790/795 Jake Brake Assembly " .

  1. Adjust the intake and exhaust valve clearances and set the injector heights. Refer to "13.2 Valve Lash, Injector Height (Timing) and Jake Brake® Lash Adjustments" .
    warning

    EYE INJURY

    To avoid injury from flying debris when using compressed air, wear adequate eye protection (face shield or safety goggles) and do not exceed 276 kPa (40 psi) air pressure.‪

  2. Attach the length of tubing to a blow gun nozzle, and blow out the oil from the bolt holes.
  3. Cover the holes with hand towels to minimize oil spray.

    Note: Removing the oil from the bolt holes prevents the cylinder head from cracking when tightening the bolts.

  4. Place the spacer bar on the exhaust manifold side of the cylinder head with the "OUT" markings adjoining each other and facing the exhaust manifold. See Figure "Spacer Bars with "Out" Marks Adjoined" , and see Figure "Location of Spacer Bars" .

  5. Place the three engine brake housings over the rocker shafts with the solenoid valves toward the camshaft side of the engine.

    Note: Be sure housings do not interfere with wiring harness.

    caution

    LOSS OF BRAKING

    To avoid injury from the loss of braking control due to an improperly installed engine brake, do not mix rocker arm shaft and engine brake mounting bolts.‪

    NOTICE:

    Do not mix the rocker arm shaft bolts and the Jake Brake capscrews. If the rocker arm shaft bolt is mistakenly used to mount the Jake Brake housing, the longer shoulder on the bolt will block the oil supply to the Jake Brake on the camshaft side of the housing. The brake will not retard the engine as designed. This condition could cause vehicle damage.

    Note: The rocker arm shaft capscrew and Jake Brake capscrew, part of the Jake Brake assembly, are similar in appearance. Both are M12 x 110 mm (4.33 in.) long and have 12–point heads.

    Note: In the event of a housing hold down bolt failure on a Jacobs engine brake housing, replace all bolts on that particular housing.

    NOTICE:

    Use bolts that have the Jacobs logo, circled "J". Installation of bolts that do not have the circled "J" may result in damage to the engine, engine brake or both.‪

    1. The Jake Brake bolt has the Jacobs logo (circled "J") and the letters "EF" marked on the head. The bolt length is no longer marked atop the bolt head.
    2. The DDC rocker arm shaft bolt has the DDC logo (spinning arrows) and the vendor I.D. (F-C) on its head.
    3. Jake Brake model 760 requires two bolts along with one bolt and new washers.
    4. Note: Be sure that only Jake Brake bolts, see Figure "Jake Brake and DDC Bolt Identification" , are installed in the Jake Brake housing.

    5. The DDC bolt shoulder is much longer, 17.0 mm (0.669 in.) versus 4 mm (0.157 in.) than the Jake Brake bolt. See Figure "Jake Brake and DDC Bolt Identification" .

      Figure 25. Jake Brake and DDC Bolt Identification

      NOTICE:

      The model 760 uses two lengths of capscrews. Six 120 mm bolts should be installed on the exhaust side of the engine. Three 110 mm bolts should be installed on the camshaft side of the engine. Failure to do so will result in engine damage.‪

  6. On model 760, install one washer onto each 120 mm (4.72 in.) bolt, and insert into brake housing on the exhaust manifold side (two per housing). See Figure "Installation of Jake Brake Housing Bolts on Exhaust Manifold Side" .

  8. On models 760A, 760B, 765, and 765A, lubricate each hold down bolt with clean engine oil.

    Note: All the housing capscrews for these models are the same length of 110 mm (4.331 in.).

  9. On models 760A, 760B, 765, and 765A, install a washer on each bolt, and install into housings (three bolts per housing).
  10. On models 760A and 765, move the housing from side to side, and locate the housing in the center position of the movement. See Figure "Locating Center Position of Housing" .
    Click to see this graphic in a separate window

    Figure 28. Locating Center Position of Housing

  11. On models 760B and 765A, move the housing from side to side, and locate as far toward the camshaft side of the engine as possible.
  12. On all models, torque the engine brake capscrews using the following sequence:
    1. Torque the three bolts on the camshaft side of the engine to 55 N·m (40 lb·ft).
    2. Torque the six bolts on the exhaust manifold side of the engine to 55 N·m (40 lb·ft).
    3. Repeat the tightening sequence and re-torque all bolts to 136 N·m (100 lb·ft).
    4. Check the torque to 136 N·m (100 lb·ft).
  13. Secure injector wire harness to each of the six Jake Brake spacer bars with tie straps.
    1. Verify tie strap is properly seated on the spacer bar. See Figure "Injector Harness Tie Strap Location"
    2. Verify tie strap is tight on spacer bar and does not move.
    3. Clip excess tails from tie strap.
    4. Note: Ensure all wires are away from moving parts.
