    12 speed leaking air..

    Thanks guys will check at the Mack dealer,not to crazy about taking it apart,it looks like a lot of parts in there..
  3. My 12 speed shift knob is blowing air out the exhaust port in all gears except nutural,I suspect a bad o ring right,do they make rebuild kits or do I hunt down the o rings separately,or buy a new shift knob?
