Mack 13 Speed

Recommended Posts

Ok, so friend of mine just bought a Superliner that has Neway susp & a Mack 13 speed. Build sheet says it has 4.42 ratio. Now, the tranny has been changed from the Mack 9 speed. Truck has LoPro 24.5 tires. It will do more than 90 mph. And it still creeps around the yard nice & slow.  My question is, what is the Over drive Ratio for a Mack 13/18 speed?

13.91 on the low side and .71 on the high side.

Check the stamping on the chuck.

4.42 with .71 @ 2100 rpm is 83 mph.

3.86/3.87 with .71 @ 2100 rpm is 96 mph.

We couldn't read the stamping on the rears.  But that sounds like a great tranny with those numbers.   What is the Torque rating?  And thanks for that info

Torque rating is in the 2000 ft lbs range.  Mack triple shaft transmissions have moxie.

Awesome. Think I want one of these Trannys for my Cruiseliner. Hmm,  wonder if they make a top loader for shift linkage?  That may be the deal breaker.

No Problem.  I haven't removed it yet to keep the truck mobile.   We did use to haul some antique trucks this summer. ! of these years I will get that project started
