Eaton conversion

Recommended Posts

We have 2000, 460 with a 13-spd and want to convert to a 13-spd Eaton. Can't get anyone to put the 13-spd Mack back together without taking out a loan. Which bellhousing do we need?

Whats wrong with the Mack 13spd if you don't mind me asking?

For the Eaton you can use either aluminum or cast iron bell housing with the correct clutch release.  You will probably need a longer prop shaft as well.

The cost of repair is whats wrong is the cost of repair is out to lunch  Mack /volvo don't want you to fix things just by new stuff! An eaton is half the cost of the mack trans to overhaul parts Are half the cost of mack parts ! In some defence kw freightliner or pete are no better! Anything dealer specific  bend over!
