Download A ½ gallon air tank is supplied to speed up the actuation of your Pacbrake and provide an air source for limited accessory use. Also provided is a 5-in-1 inline inflation/deflation kit that includes a 25′ coiled air hose and accessories within a zippered storage bag (zippered storage bag not shown in photo). Please note: The air compressor has a 33% duty cycle, this is well above the exhaust brakes requirement. Caution must be exercised when using the compressor and inflation kit for other uses. Please consider the air compressors duty cycle when continually in use for more then 3 minutes, failure to do so may allow the air compressor or hoses to overheat causing failure. 1 Prior to starting the installation, check both exhaust manifolds and exhaust bellows for exhaust leaks. If exhaust leaks exist they should be repaired prior to installing the exhaust brake. Disconnect both negative battery terminals first.… Read More
