ENGINE BRAKE APPLICATION GUIDE


For Cummins NH/NT Engines
This guide outlines the procedure to use in
selecting the correct model TecBrake engine brake
and lash adjusting screws for Cummins 855 Big
Cam/Small Cam, and NTC/88NT series engines.
Included in this guide are the CPL numbers of those
engines, which TecBrake has approved for use with
their engine brakes.
Engine Identification:
Obtain the engines CPL number. This number can
be used to identify the engine model and is required
to determine the correct lash adjusting screw for
the application.
If the engine is a Small or Big Cam 855 series it is
also necessary to determine whether the engine has
a single or twin entry type turbocharger. Some of
these engines have been upgraded by the installation
of a pulse manifold and twin entry turbo. To determine
which type turbo is on the engine, measure the
turbine housing. Refer to the turbo identification
drawing in this guide. It is not necessary to determine
the turbocharger type when installing brakes on the
NTC/88NT series engines.

Model T425A
Three additional lash-adjusting screws are available for less
common Big Cam and Small Cam engine configurations
which use the Model T425A kit. These screws are not
included in the kit and must be ordered separately. The CPLs
requiring these optional screws are indicated with an (*) next
to the lash adjusting screw number in the guide.

brake operation and engine damage.

Turbo Identification

Lash Adjusting Screws Included in Kit:


All kits come with the most commonly used lash
adjusting screws already installed in the brake
housings. A set of the second most commonly used
lash adjusting screw is also included in the T425A
and T430 kits.
Optional Adjusting Screws:
Model T430A
All necessary adjusting screws are included on Brake
Kit to cover all listed applications.

Measure turbine housing at distance of 5 from flange.


If dimension A is less than 3.6, the turbo has a single entry inlet.
If dimension A is more than 3.6, the turbo has a twin inlet.
