Will have to see what line you are referring and will check it.I forgot if the 8.3L MW pump is boost referenced, it should be. Make sure this pressure line is clear, connected correctly, and could check the diaphragm, spring, and internal movements associated with it.
I thought about that exact thing and it definitely has all the gears.I wonder if the torque convertor clutch is locking up or trans starting in wrong gear from stop. When you sound you went to pull out from a stop and were also turning and it stalled. It reminded me of the tc clutch staying engaged causing engine to stall out. Do you feel all the gears shifting when you are driving? Could be starting out in wrong gear like 2,etc...
Good point on gears. Once into the upper RPM’s of second, you should feel it do half a shift. This is the torque converter locking up, as a function check of that as well.I thought about that exact thing and it definitely has all the gears.
Mighty handy...I like.Good point on gears. Once into the upper RPM’s of second, you should feel it do half a shift. This is the torque converter locking up, as a function check of that as well.
Here is the prototype clear return line, simply threads inline into the return fitting at the tank. I’ll test fit it later today on my truck, but should fit all M939’s, possibly others as well. I think the next one will not have crimped collars, or it will be optional.

Yes. But the RPM drop for the converter locking is much smaller than the RPM drop during the shift. Also, the TC does not lock as soon as it shift into second, or is later in the shift. You may also be able to just put the shifter in 2 and hold there to see if it locks, I have never tried it.Mighty handy...I like.
I will see if I can feel the TC. So once it shifts (it's a hard shift) Into second as it is winding out I should feel the TC lock and then hit 3rd....right?
Sight glass works amazing! They are listed for sale in the classifieds. Can get return side, suction side, or both to better identify a tank pickup problem.Well, just went on a long ride. I 100% have TC lockup. I reckon that is good news.
This truck runs so good except for the hard 2nd upshift....will tackle that after this.
It's only issue is that not wanting to move sometimes from a dead stop.
Gotcha. I did check and it is nice and tight.
Why would this be a fuel problem if there is no problem in reverse?I know I need to turn the android, however the plug I have to remove is not wanting to budge. Dang near stripped it today. I have it soaking in PB right now. besides that I am asking if there is anything else I can do to help my problem. The truck has zero...I mean no power if there is any bind on the tires at startup especially on a cold engine. An example is I park in soft gravel and this afternoon I put it in gear and it would not move. In reverse is not a problem. Have had it shut down on me a couple of times when trying to start from a stop and turning at same time. This is a problem and I have to fix it. Otherwise it runs excellent and has excellent mid and top end.
