Splitter does not shift when cold on mack 12 speed


Recommended Posts

Not sure if this helps anything, but the range shift on the 15-speed Fuller I had did not want to shift when I first started the truck.  I had to sit there in neutral and flip the hi-lo several times to get it to shift.  Once it shifted, it was good for the rest of the day, even if it was cut off and restarted.  This was a lot more noticeable when it was cold, and nowhere near as pronounced when it was hot.

I believe I had a slave valve gummed up, preventing proper air flow to the shift cylinder.  That truck had a little oil in the air system, and I believe that oil was causing the slave valve to be stubborn.  These air-shifted puppies can be picky about clean/dry air.

Also if you see oil oozing from the stick tower or out the breather vent you may want to oring your shift lid!

When your talking cold, what sort of temp are you talking

Cold in Australia is different than other places around the world 

As to the oil I cant advise if it's ok or not

I would check the air pressure and make sure the regulators are working correctly 

I would as check the filter and the exhaust to make sure it is clear

I do that with my three boxes.  Put triplex in gear and leave my aux in neutral to move things around while building air.
