    Yes you did , however I miss understood it the way you explained it . I assumed it as a trailing throttle over speed safety , I did not realize you could be under accelerating throttle and loose connection ! This is bassackwards from what I'm familiar with , where the eng. Gov. protects on the...

    Is air brake anti freeze ( alch) with lube a bad idea to pour in the line of the rear of the outboard pass side air tank ? I'm just sitting here thinking that the temp has not been above 25F since i carried the truck home , and a few weeks back in SC i picked up a semi trailer with no brake...

    i did not know about 2200 rpm disconnect No i did not know they disconnect @2100 .... Snap on mag Tach verifies the Gage to be close/to fairly correct , the gage actually reads shy in this temp by about 50 RPM+- So I'm banging approx 2300 in my upper gears and that would explain the lack...

    trans seems to be getting slightly better with use , still not locked in any gear even first , but dam close to it ! reverse seems to be the strongest lock up ,,, after 7th you need to be gentle to not slip,,, after 11th you need to be going down hill to use 12, 13,14,15,16 , someone...

    Ok , Great I will get right on this in the morning , I still can't understand the lack of temp in the oil and on the outside of the trans case ? I guess I should ask what oil to use at this point and to check while running in neutral or in gear, it was a gal low running in N , I added Schaffer...

    where do I begin .? How do I know if the trans is healthy ? Any way to lock up 16th and prove it can be good? Does the cool oil make sense to u with all that slipping 16th on flat ground @ 2200 rpm may hold u at 25 mph , my brain will not allow my foot to do that for long and my foot keeps...

    interesting , not sure where to begin , I am a mechanic , but lack info on this , is it likely that the trans is healthy because of the lack of heat and burnt smell , and it's just one of what you mentioned ? Is there anyone that is near me that works on these ? I need to understand the...
