  1. The X means OD but that was in the later trans with the X bar in the top cover.In the RTO 910 or 9510 you will not find a X bar top cover.
  2. The side will fold down and the pipe is loaded or unloaded thru the side and the fold down sides serve as a ramp.
  3. If you cant find a rebuilder i have a pump like that that has about 200000 miles on it and it was a mack rebuilt pump.it and 6 injectors for it 1200.00 $
  4. The trans needs to come out and open it up and you will see the problems.With it staying in gear you should be able to get in in another gear at same time.It will not move and you will bend the counter shafts and twist the main shaft.
  5. You have a broken snap ring or thrust washer on the main shaft.
  6. Hillcrest Camshaft hillcrestcamshaft.com 5502 W 65th St, Little Rock, AR 72209 Here is a place that grinds cams and as for as the lifters they can replace the surface on the old lifters.I helped a man put a cam and lifters in his mack engine one time and i liked the looks of the lifters.

  9. If you do cam brgs then get the acc drive bushings also.Did you plastic gauge the mains also?Reason i ask is most people grind the mains when the rod throws are done.
  10. If you pull the pan again then plastic gauge the brgs
  11. I put a chain under the pan up to both frame rails ever time some of us pull a trans for safety.I have did this for years and will do this in about two weeks on the one i drive.I also put a jack under flywheel housing and if pan comes off then you have alot of things to use.
  12. Only thing i dont like about dayton is the drums on mine cost about 1400.00 for 4 of them.They last about 3years and they were webb brand.I had to waite about 2 weeks for webb to build some.
