Thanks John, Randy, all...I bet you can guess what's on my TO-DO list. I was searching for 92 Series Jake Brake information and came across those files.

I'm searching for the 92 Series Jake Brake System to install on our coach. If anyone has a system or parts I'd like to hear from you.

The Allison Transmission in our coach is the HTB-748...anyone know anything about this transmission working with the Jake Brake?

Hi Curt,
We go in next week to the Tampa Detroil Diesel place to get our Jake worked on.
We have a rebuilt engine with about 5k miles on it now. We got the bird with 200 miles on the engine.
We have had our bird now for 7 years and are fulltiming for the last 2 years.
I think the old Jake was moved over to the new engine with no work done on it.
Coming down here to Florida, the high setting went out and the low setting became the high setting.
Looking on the Jake website, seems in 95 they issued a bulletin that said the injectors needed to be upgraded.
I plan on getting a rebuild kit for all six. Don't know what it will cost, but have to have my Jake!
I can ask them, if you want, if they have a used Jake system sitting around.

Hi Bob,
Thank you for the offer to help. Our 8V92 received a NEW Jake install a couple months ago. The Jake should have been the 1st item on my list...not way down the list. Agree, don't want to be without a Jake.

Good luck.

What's the going rate for a Jake installed on an 8V92? Not real happy with just the retarder.

New Jake is $1,200 to $2,100...used/rebuilt cost less.

Jake installation price...exhaust blankets enter in (the remove and install time). Use 12 to 16 labor hours times the hourly rate. Shops near Anaheim CA are getting $120/hr. Mobile diesel repair guys are getting $90/hr.

Yes. I know a fellow that has a few new Jake sets on hand, at least he did a few months ago, and at a good price. He also has rebuilt and used sets. I paid $1,200 for a new set and that included the taller valve covers and gaskets.
