  1. I have a fuller 8 LL in my tri-axle. When shifting from high to low range, it grinds. At the same time this showed up, when I shift from low low, to low, air feeds back through the shifter. If I move the valve around a little, air stops. I can't find much trouble shooting for the 8 LL on the internet. Any help?

    Yes , I was just there yesterday. Joe's gone. His daughter, Mary Lou is running the place. I get along with her great. Burke is no longer married to Mary Lou. He's out of the picture all together.


    I enjoy the vanilla Cojimar's, sugar tipped. Sweet smell and mild taste.

    Mack oil change kit

    Yes, remove the bottom drain hose and than you can get a filter wrench on the canister to unscrew it.

    Its cold here.

    Only got down to -9 here this morning. Coldest I've seen in a long while.

    E9 Engine Brake

    I've never seen anything other than a Dynatard on a E9. Mine works great but as stated I think a lot has to do with valve settings and how well the engine is running. A weak engine is not going to have good engine braking power. On 6 cylinders I've never had a good Dynatard but had some Jakes that worked great.

    2000 CL E7-427 upgrades

    I've had these injectors in for about 5 or 6 years now with no issues. I had an issue with an engine stumble., Pulled the injectors thinking it was the problem but it wasn't. Turned out Mack had problems with that year computer and had it re-programed and that took care of the problem. Changed the radiator and replaced it with a better flowing aluminum core.

    2000 CL E7-427 upgrades

    http://www.reedysdiesel.com/ Never checked mpg. Sometimes you have sacrifice power for mpg. Where I run, it's nothing but hills and valleys. It did increase my egt's and water temps, but still in the safe range. Where you live it is for sure hotter but you don't have the hills to climb (except for overpasses, LOL)

    2000 CL E7-427 upgrades

    I have a 2000 Rd with a 400hp stock motor. Added super flow injectors (90 hp increase) and only changed the turbo to a 427 (which you already have) giving me around 490 with no other changes. Very few tri-axles around can run with it. My mileage is a lot lower, about 300,000. A friend has a 525 Cat and one day I was running with him and I out pulled him on a long hill. So either mine runs better or his runs weaker.
