Anyway, I use the engine brake A LOT!. Like Iv'e never had to replace the brake linings, they don't need replacing at 120,000+ miles. Maybe I traded brake wear for rear end wear! Engine braking transfers the stress to the other side of the pinion gear. Maybe that's what happened, I don't know.
Morning Mike, It doesn't matter but the reply above should have been addressed to Jacwjames aka Jim.
Jim is an engineer that was a manager in a large underground mine where he oversaw the maintenance of lots & lots of heavy equip, so you guys can speak the same language, so to speak.
Back to your coach, I don't believe I have ever heard of someone having that many things go bad.
Is there anything you can attribute those failures to?
Perhaps neglect by a previous owner.
Anyway thanks for sharing.
Ray & Marilyn
