    I have heard rumors that the parts from the tec brakes are interchangeable with the Jacobs. Does anybody know for sure?

    you a correct, the tec brake has all the same parts as the jacobs brake. All parts are available through tec brake's web site. You can get a rebuild kit for it, about a 100 bucks. I am looking for some of the little discs that go ontop of the valves, there are two sizes the ones I have are the larger ones. At 25 bucks a piece they are a bit pricey.

    Confirmed! We have interchanged parts between the two brakes and everything is exactly the same.

    Jake parts work in Tec and Tec parts works in Jake... :D

    Sweet! and only $100! Mine doesn't seem to work right. I put it on and it takes a long time to start to work and then doesn't seem to stop the engine really quick. When you shut it off and turn it right back on it takes quite a while for to do anything again. I installed it by the book so am not sure whats wrong. Figured it needed a rebuild and I figured the parts would be expensive as could be, but I am wrong on 1 part.

    Any advice helps alot.

    Thanks,
    Bob
