biggav69 Posted August 4, 2013 Share Posted August 4, 2013 HiThe boss has just bought a 1983 Superliner for a yard truck. I havnt been able to get any serial numbers off it yet.It does have a the E9 engine and a 12 speed .I have a couple of questions after the first test drive.The tacho doesnt work. I noticed the tacho drive coming from the front of the engine but didnt have time to investigate much. Is there something that fails with thesethat can be fixed or is it just a case of buy new parts?The jakes are very intermittant. There is only a on/off switch on the dash, I couldnt see any stage switches but I dont know if they have then or not.When the jakes do come on sometimes they come on very well sounds and feels like all cylinders are working, other times it just coughs and splutters like maybe it is only working on a couple of cylinders. Are jakes supposed to be just all on or all off? How do you adjust the if they just need to be adjusted?This is the first time I have been around and driven a superliner after admiring then from a distance and wishing that I could have one. I had a big smile on my face the whole time I was driving it. Now for the hard work of giving it some TLC and getting it back to its former glory.Thanks in advance for you helpGav Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
