Transmission Handbrake – Toyota LandCruiser VDJ78 Troop Carrier & VDJ79 series (both with ABS)

Transmission Handbrake Manufactured with a 160mm drum to suit the VDJ78 Troop Carrier & VDJ79 series model Landcruiser. Which has an extra tubed cross-member section on the chassis and prevents our MFK20080 Handbrake kit from fitting

The factory LandCruiser 70 series drum in disc handbrake is well known for filling with debris, quickly getting out of adjustment and giving the operator no confidence in its effectiveness.

Our transmission handbrake is mounted on the transfer case output shaft which keeps the brake up out of the road grime and debris, maximising service life, reducing service intervals and saving costly parts.

The advantage of a transmission brake is that it locks the entire drive-train, including all four wheels when the transfer case is locked in 4WD. As the handbrake is mounted prior to the differential you also gain the 3.9:1 differential ratio advantage over braking at the wheels.

When installing the Marks4wd Handbrake upgrade to your vehicle the original handbrake cable, shoes, clips, etc can be removed.
