    F650 Allison trans

    I remember Orcas topic. It was in the ford chassis sub forum if I recall in 411. To the original topic.... Check your battery there is a fuse or two there going to the ecms. Had a M2 shakker besides the 650 same electrical problem just changed all the fuses everywhere and no issue on the shakker. The trans used to just drop out and would lose the display to the trans on the dash. Had a Auto in a 55k chassis with a 350 isx.
  2. Not towing at the moment but I'm still here pulling a oil hose for the winter season. TRAA level 2 need to renew. Over 10 years LD and dispatch.
  3. Stuck in drive? Shifter linkage issue?
  4. A power probe was my dearest friend when I had to replace half of the wiring bundle on one of our flatbeds. Just bring power to the bar at the cab side of the harness and you will figure out which wires are what or if the harness is already ran flip the switch and see which wire becomes hot.
  5. Thank you very much. Another day to train Saturday and full time Monday. Tomorrow I'll empty out the truck I was driving.
  6. I'm leaving due to to lack of pay. I enjoyed the atmosphere but it only goes so far if I just make it financially.
  7. After over 10 years towing mainly MC volume and PD in the LD market this winter I'm gonna learn a new truck and deliver home heating oil. I'd love to learn heavy to make more and use my class A main reason as well why I got it, bit where I'm at there is only LD and can only make so much. I'll peak in from time to time but it's time to pull a hose.

    My trip down under

    Yes. He does I am still in contact with many out there. That was about 10 years ago. One day I'll take another trip out there and run up the range. I even got to drive their Pete when I was there then with the 50 ton slider that was shipped from the ports here in Baltimore. I think Truck works down by Sydney did the conversion to RH drive.
  9. Routine service. Last weekend in our 550 dropped the pan and new filter, few months ago did rear service on everything. 5500 may be due for a fluid change, shakker did fluid and spin on filter when the trans line blew. That has over 340k but trans done around 200k original benz 6.4l motor still strong. Isuzu got new tranz but valve dropped in motor awaiting a new motor. So I believe we focus on all fluids, oh and ford wrecker had a change of fluid to. ATF in a zf manual 5 speed..... good looking
  10. Oh wow. Hope the best. I've dropped off a few cars to his shop over the years. Was a very nice man when I had to drop anything there.
  11. I was going to take off but I need to take the weekend off to fly to TX instead.
  12. I like going in and out of the rear of that place. Can hit 280 pretty quick and the wawa there instead of dealing with the apartment idiot's on new rd from 46.
  13. I just tilted the 550 headlights down a little. Did a lot better for oncoming traffic. Get a lot less people flashing me back. Also improved high beam performance instead of them tilted to far up.

    6.7L in 650 chassis

    I'm not a owner. Was just curious. Kinda like how the stock 7.3l in a 4700 chassis with a 5 speed was a dog but ran great in a super duty chassis.
