Torque arm problems

Recommended Posts

So go find two or three good quality 1/8 thick  fediloy grade eight flat washers from a bolt supply place and stack them in there the results will bed the same!you can’t not have no washer s in this location or you’ll endup in the same spot again !Fastenall to name just one.

These brackets were once fabricated and held down by two bolts and spacers it is now casted!And now one bolt and a spacer over time they have cheapened things !

Was at the mack dealer today and they don't show a washer in there

Quirky, I didn’t see it on PAI’s diagram either. The catch is the differential is under driveline and the bracket is under suspension. Somewhere in there, in parts limbo, is the spacer. If your willing to wait I’d get that number, stubbornness requires answers to be appeased.

Otherwise, If you put it on the four studs and it’s a little sloppy and forgiving.......washer time.

I can wait if you can get the part number, that would be great

Yeah, same experience here, if you use them they treat you pretty well.

Had a local guy who bought a small fleet of matching auctioned trucks from them. One night he came in with a large cardboard box of random EUP’s. I was working on his engine miss. He said “Install these as needed and give me back any that don’t work. Manders gave me a box full and I turn in the ones that don’t work and pay them for the ones that do”.

I leaned on Manders Diesel. Those guys are the best informed Mack parts men I’ve met. They’re a Mack dealership and a salvage yard so the guys at the counter have all the crossover compatibilities in their heads. 

There was no picture of it in the system. Bill found it listed though as a “qty 1” item on the diff breakdown. 

Thanks for getting that part number dor me. That explains why the parts guy missed it.

No problem. For as much grief as you’ve had it warrants searching. You’ll want to still be cautious and make sure it squares up well and fits naturally. The thing is a best kept secret..... I held it, sure looks right.........
