I know how to adjust the valve lash. How do I adjust the engine brake on a 2006 CAT C15 ACERT?

You adjust the Jake Brake lash at the same time you adjust the exhaust valve setting.
Loosen adjustment locknut (1) and back out the adjustment screw until the slave piston is not in contact with the exhaust valve rocker arm.

Insert the appropriate feeler gauge between the foot of the slave piston (2) and the rocker arm (3) . Refer to Table 1 for the correct slave piston lash setting.

Turn the adjustment screw for the slave piston in a clockwise direction until the slave piston tightens against the feeler gauge. A slight drag should be felt on the feeler gauge.

Tighten the adjustment locknut (1) to a torque of 34 ± 5 N·m (25 ± 4 lb ft). Recheck the adjustment after you tighten the locknut. If necessary, repeat this procedure. without a serial number and jake model unsure of your lash CJP1-UP

It probable has the Variable Valve Actuators on the intake side you adjust too. I don't have a book around me to look right now as to how.
