Would be helpful to be SURE this is J72. Is this a W24 chassis or do you know which one it is?

IF it is a J71, I'd put the odds as pretty hi on the problem being the gear shift lever position switch. Driver side of the tranny, down near the bottom - - where the linkage is attached.

You're absolutely correct Driver - - I think they show 5 different P series in 03, plus the W20 and W22. Do I recall correctly that the 17K
and 18K chassis could have EITHER J71 or J72?

Maybe the OP will come back and give us a positive ID on his chassis.

We're quick to confess we don't have all that much information on the J72. I think that Workhorse buys that system as a package from Carlisle, but I've never seen anything other than the most rudimentary of technical info about it.

I don't think there are all that many of them out there in the first place, BUT also they seem to have a really good track record for reliability. That in itself may account for the the apparent lack of technical info. If they don't bust very often, we won't hear much about them. I DO wish we could find out what is in their little analog black control box.

In any event, we're still glad to give either system our best shot if someone has one with a problem.

Once we know for sure which system we're talking about, we can try to pinpoint the difficulty.

Will the air operated system completely do away with the hydraulic system? What will be the approximate cost to have it installed?

Tom,

This will be completly operated by air no more hydraulic's at all.We are doing our first one tomorrow & then I can figure out how much the upgrade will cost.

Mike,
Many of us on IRV2 use Photobucket.com to upload our pictures. You won't need any special permissions from IRV2 to post a link to your pictures. Photobucket is free but you do have to register. I've been using it for 5 years to show pic's on this forum & I don't get spam or any other ad's from them.

Once you upload your pic's to Photobucket, you copy the link listed below each picture, then paste the link in your IRV2 posting. The link should have [IMG] before and [/IMG] after link. The first time you do it you may find you used too large or too small of resolution. But then you can upload it again to size it right. I believe around 640x480 or 600x400 is a good compromise size. You can have captions in Photobucket but they won't show up here. You can just type instruction in posting, insert the link and repeat for each picture.

Mike...
You can also email them to me and I can set up an account for you here and get them posted. (My email is listed by clicking my name on the left) OR you can go to this link for instructions on how to do it.

I have a feeling that Keith could tell you that I am probably one of the "experts" on photo posting here!
