Is there really not enough room under the bonnet/hood?
Kenworth down here fit the 15l Cummins into the SAR, although I admit it has a recessed firewall. It does have a very short bonnet though
Actually the 70’s and 80’s Kenworth SAR came from the factory with the 19l k series Cummins.
Take a look at these. All built in USA to original size as old arcades. These are awesome. Even takes quarters.
Really thought that taking the transmission to Mack would be a quick easy solution. In most cases I would have just put a reman in but couldn't find one. Talking with Mack, they made it sound like an easy fix. We are a fairly large and busy shop here in the mountains of Colorado so I try to out source transmissions and differentials. Like I had said before, there are not a lot of Macks around here or the information to work on them. We have Mitchell 1, but not very helpful in a lot of areas concerning Mack trucks. Out of the 100 or so trucks that we maintain I think we have 3 Macks. I put an injection pump on and E7 350 here awhile back and added that to my "Never again!" list...
I did order a case of transmission air filters for the customer. I'm confident that the failure of this transmission was due to sticky cylinders and gummed up inversion valves. Installed all new airlines on tranny, replaced regulator and rebuilt inversion valves. Filled transmission with synthetic 50wt.
Glad he kept them. Township of Riverhead on Long Island bitched about the 40 old trucks I had on the farm. I went and got antique insurance and tags on all of them. Some were barely above scrap. 100% Legal and code enforcement and the yuppies could not do squat. Aside from the antique insurances small bill, the plates are life time in N.Y.S. The initial $4000 for the plates is/ was well worth it just to see the neighbors sour pusses.
One farm turned their old Power Wagon into a fountain. Went to court over it and the judge agreed it was "art".
Hey bro have you had Much to do with M drive?
We did a clutch replace/ absolutely, everything the flyweel , clutch , actuator and valve the clutch will not calibrate there are no leaks. yet the computor says the clutch is operating to slow makes a hell of a chatter when you try to test it manually via VCADS then that error comes up! To top it off there were no actuators in the system we had to go to another dealer to get one makes me suspicious they a having issues with these and are not saying !
