Terry,
It figures about the guys not being there when you stopped, my kind of luck. I like Gordon's idea about the lighted steps. I know that the amber leds on my running boards really light them up and they are spaced 2 ft apart. Mine are hooked up to the tail lights not the door though. I like the way Lloyd is offering you help also, nice guy.
Hope that everything works out and that you can pick the trans up tomorrow.
Frank

Frank, Called the truck parts place, waiting on a call back, their procedure is that they take calls for a couple of hrs, then go locate and pull parts then call back with the results. This is the parts place in case someone needs parts in the area http://www.google.com/url?sa=t&rct=j...vcBgSQooTT1lOg

Terry you CLACer you.

Looks like you have a great base for the Toter.

Man I haven't had a build in so long I'm about to lose my mind. I have a Project 818 sitting in OK waiting for me. It will give me something to do this winter in between things at Liberty Farms.

Now that things have calmed down a bit for us I'll have time to peak in in your new project(s).

Terry,
Hope that you can go pick up the trans today. I finished up the rewiring of the trailer plugs, and everything works like it should, I still have to fabricate a bracket to bolt the box to, but that will come down in Florida. Then changed the routing of the fuel line into the lift pump, I didn't like the way the original one came out, it looked like it was partially collapsed. Today, grease chassis and change oil and filter, then truck is ready to go.
Jay,
That looks like a fun project.
Frank

Good Afternoon, Well I decided not to get the trany yet, I haven't been able to get enough info, to let me be comfortable installing the "new" transmission. So I'm going to wait until I can get some more info. Here's my latest update,

Dang Terry that is disappointing news!!

MAYBE! I tend to like the option of having the transmission rebuilt. It has a level of peace of mind that the wrecking yard transmission does not have.

How difficult would it be to take the emergency brake drum off and go over to the wrecking yard and try it on the 643 transmission?

Gordon, The main trouble is the yard is two hrs. away, be nice if I could find a trany closer, even if it was no good, just to look it over. I'm still looking for info.

Thanks Terry, Yes it is good to get the wiring straightened out, greased and changeds oil today, so other than washing it, it is ready to go. Is the trans bad or does it just need fluid and filter change? Ok just watched the video, and did you check with Allison about adapting the Ebrake to the new trans? I f anyone could tell you if it is possible, they would be the ones.
Frank

Hi Frank, I asked Allison here, I may need to find another # to call, they couldn't tell me, the day of the good parts/service person has sadly passed, I remember when the counter person came up thru the ranks first a mechanic then moved into other areas, that guy could tell you what worked. The people now seem to be able to look up #'s on a computer and that's it. The trany now has a bad clutch pack, its actually welded itself together. The previous owner's driver ran it after the trans filter started leaking, just kept nursing it to get it back. The shop where my son works changed the filter and added oil, it now moves but doesn't have reverse or neutral because the clutches won't release.

Hmmmm - if it were me and the weather was nice I would suggest a road trip. Sometimes don't need much of a reason to take a bike ride.

However I am still really leaning towards an Allison rebuild. You know what the final product will be and you will have a warranty.

Only thing to consider is the difference in cost and determine what the risk would be.

Terry, considered a line lock? I think that is the name?

Goes in the brake line for the rear brakes, you step on the brakes, throw the lever down and they are locked? Only issue I ever had with them is they are hard on the brake seals,,, if you leave them on for long periods.


It would be nice to have the better transmission, and the line lock is pretty inexpensive.
