Update #8Hang in there!....Someone will suggest something. You have done fabulous work and are an excellent trouble shooter. It will work out
I’ll give y’all a dollar 350 for the truck….!!!!Back to my CTIS issue that I have posted a bunch on the tread about since February.
I removed both sides of the rear axle. New seals all around. Still have the same problem!
I'm total out of ideals. I have replaced virtually ever part from the controller to the wheels & the valve still sticks open.
I think if I can't get it, I'm just going to sell the truck. It is one of the main reasons I wanted it as CTIS is such a great option. A lot of people delete it & otherwise the truck is now in phenomenal mechanical shape.
let the bidding war begin... you'll be in a Prius by next week Colt !
.Well, since I got it... not for sale anymore.
Drained & filled the axle with oil. Took it for a 30 mile or so drive to get fuel. Seems good.
One time the quick release valve dumped a bit while filling. But, ultimately it works. Thinking that maybe some gunk made it;s way to it. Hoping it will just work itself out with a bunch of cycles.
CMC..found the link to the Allison PDF…thanks. Transmission Fluid Level check procedure starts @ page 47Small update video. Going to take some time to get the real in depth video made & edited.
Yes. It will be completely rebuilt wire by wire in the future. I don't see another option. I didn't visit Stewart & Stevenson in San Antonio to ask about the harness because I doubt they can get it, & if they can, it's going to cost half what I paid for my truck.Did you ever find a solution to the transmission wiring harness degradation? I expect that will become a problem we all will be facing at some point in the future.
I am going to use this link in my video description, thanks!CMC..found the link to the Allison PDF…thanks. Level check procedure starts @ page 47
I have noticed when replacing the headlights on my truck recently that the wiring behind the bumper is pretty crispy. I'm making plans to completely rewire the truck. I don't like the idea of it one day burning to the ground due to the insulation flaking out of the wiring harness.Yes. It will be completely rebuilt wire by wire in the future.

Wires falling apart is going to be the biggest problem for everything on these trucks it seems. I'm finding them behind the dash & up behind the grill as well.
get her done:.... I'm making plans to completely rewire the truck. I don't like the idea of it one day burning to the ground due to the insulation flaking out of the wiring harness.
My plan is to use plywood to lay out a new wiring harness template using the existing one. I'm going to make a template for each harness in the truck.
