    Should be a heat shield then the hard copper heater lines on top. The studs secure the shield and clamps that hold the hard lines.

    CRD 93 Housing w/or w/o transverse rod

    That's the one. On mine only the rear crd93 has the transverse rod. We're those on air ride? My 85 on neway has the rods on both rears

    CRD 93 Housing w/or w/o transverse rod

    The parts truck with old style housings are 4.64 I have 4.42 now that one is bad for sure, the other the breather was missing and it was full of dirt so
  9. On my new acquisition R it has the bracket with transverse rod that on the rear carrier mounts to the frame and uses the dog bone style torque rod that mounts to the cross member. I have found a set of 4.64s but they are without the holes for the mounting bracket for the transverse rod and it uses the old style torque rod. I have been looking for a new style cut off but in my area slim pickings, or the ratios are to high or low. I have checked on rebuilding or remans but cant justify the costs yet. Has anyone drilled the housings and used bolts for the bracket? I don't want to run the old style as I would probably make it the rears feel loose with a 16ft box grossing 80k.

    12 speed PTO

    Are Mack transmission side mount PTOs interchangeable or do they fit only specific transmissions?

    1994 e7 Valve adjustment

    Have you adjusted valves before? Not much difference rotate engine and adjust the tag on the motor should have cold valve specs. You can mark the balancer to that may make it easier
