all things above can cause this issue as well as a worn release yoke and a out of tolerance front bearing retainer . fought with a mack 12 sp. for hours before discovering a excessive amount of material had been removed on the bearing retainer by a reman outfit. over thickness clutch brakes are available to help correct for excessive flywheel machining . in the case of the reman trans I had to put two clutch brakes in it and grind the facing off of the mating brakes to make it work right. ( the truck had a drop axle, and the trans and all the extras were in place or I would have pulled the trans again to fix properly)
I will chime in on this because I have a 2016 CXU with the Grand Touring interior, 70" condo, 505C+ engine (with the "old" fuel injection. I have now had the truck just over a year. It has 160 000 miles on it. The truck runs phenomenally. I run up and down the I15 corridor. I am always 80 000 lbs gross. My 30 day mpg is 7.77, 60 day 7.85, and 90 day 7.90. I have been idling a touch more in the warmer months here. Anyways, From my experience the old injection system performs well, and I have had ZERO problems with the truck since delivery. I am very happy with my Mack.
P.S. My two previous trucks were a 2010 KW T660/86 Studio/485/1850 ISX, and a 2005 379 Peterbilt 63" bunk C15/475/1850. My Mack is by far my favorite truck of the 3.
The electric stove- I made it because my son said he wanted an old stove in his back yard too- I was touched. Saw it just up the road for sale one day for $35. It was actually a perfectly fine fully operational 'lectric range.
All wires removed-
The electric stoves need the drawer in the bottom- that will be your fire box. I bought him a big, but very cheap, wok at the Wal Mart store to use as a fire box- the bottom of the drawer itself would burn out quickly if you didn't put something in there for your fire.
Here's my gas stove- like I said, it ain't much to look at, but it makes a fine smoker- the electric stoves do too, but if you can find a gas stove there's no wires to remove, no holes to drill, you just pull that door open at the bottom, put some charcoal on that tray that slides in and out, put some boston butts in the oven, close door, add wood as needed, drink beer, wait for meat to cook.
And this is the end result-
And yes, I really did make that in that old ugly-ass stove!
Happy birthday(a little late) I was a union car hauler before a union card became a way. To avoid a days work!What a small world,I used to haul steel coils out of Homestead works of Us steel (where the United steel workers were born out of the ashes of the Homestead riots in the1890's) to Gate 10 Lackawanna N.Y. US steel works! five years later the car hauling company's,had something called a half rate back haul.you picked a
Mrs mack Paul ,you mentioned the Hand built Hippo,Our freightliner was originally built by consolidated freightways mechanics in their Portland Oregon shop.they needed a short lightweight tractor that could pull longer trailers and haul more weight,hence the aluminum cab.this being the result of heavily enforced weight and length laws.The infamous DOT officers! I suspect they only wanted to get their cattle and freight hauled in Australia.
