    1999 CH613 reverse light and low air warning

    Might make sense ! This truck was parked for a year or so , might just be stuck! Thanks !!!
  2. Reverse light and low air alarm are not operable on a truck I just bought , any suggestions , before I overlook the obvious ? Also is there anything special to wire for the trailer ABS light to work properly? Thanks in advance !

    Chicagoland Mack dealerships?

    Chicago , Joliet , Indiana Mack and the small satellite shops were great when owned by Shelby , bit no longer. While I don't get thru Tulsa much ,I always appreciated Tulsa Mack! If I had the cash to buy the 2000 Vision there right now I would !

    Throttle ! I 25 year rule gets vehicles past EPA issues and I don't think those would apply to heavy trucks anyway.

    What is the value of hood orniment?

    I've always wanted to have one with lit up eyes , THEN have a spring loaded right leg that will lift when I hit a button to make it lift it's leg and piss on Peterbilts when hooked to a windshield washer pump!!

    Eaton/Fuller 13 speed issue ONLYin the big hole

    Also has one other intermittent issue in reverse , sometimes while backing it will suddenly "jump" like theres a rock between the gears or something . 1st time having a Mack without a real Mack gearbox , sure does not seem as smooth or quiet as I've been used to. I suppose I should be planning on a rebuild of it . 2001 Vision with a 460, motor is fine just this gearbox had me on edge , not so wild on 3.70 rear gears , who spec's that in the last 2 decades for a road truck?????

    Eaton/Fuller 13 speed issue ONLYin the big hole

    That's what baffles me ! Clutch is great , could there be a air or electric solenoid/slave cylingder?
  13. When in the big hole in 12th , the truck cruises fine , but if you let off the throttle , after about 5 seconds or so the engine rpm's drop then if you apply any throttle it starts picking up again almost like a centrifugal clutch , Happens with or without the jake on . No problems when in 13th. Any thoughts?

    The metal ones on my 2001 Vision are MUCH more quiet than the composite ones on my 1996 CH!
