How to Use Older HydraStar Electric Over Hydraulic Actuator on 2008 Ford F-450

Question:

My HBA-10 has a serial number below 313800 036625. Will this HBA-CAM work with a factory brake controller on a 2008 Ford F450?

Expert Reply:

The HydraStar Electric Over Hydraulic Actuator Adapter Module # HBA-CAM will only work if your HydraStar Electric Over Hydraulic Actuator for Drum Brakes # HBA-10 has a serial number above 313800 so it won't work for you. So you have a couple options, the first of which is that adapter along with a new HydraStar Electric Over Hydraulic Actuator for Drum Brakes # HBA-10.

The other is to replace the factory brake controller in your 2008 Ford F-450 with one that is compatible with electric over hydraulic actuators.

The most economical but still quality options for this are:

- Curt TriFlex Trailer Brake Controller # C51140 with Curt Custom Wiring Adapter # C51432

- Hopkins Agility Trailer Brake Controller # HM47294 with Plug-In Connector # HM47855

With a new brake controller you will need to go to the dealer to get the PCM (Power-Train Control Module) flashed.
