I have the chance to buy an Eaton 9 speed tranny NOS for cheap, are they air shifted or stick?
Both, the range is air shifted, the rest is a stick.I have the chance to buy an Eaton 9 speed tranny NOS for cheap, are they air shifted or stick?
I like to shift just like the rest of the truckers......... Im just an old retired farmer........ I have 6 and 9 and a 10 tranny's in trucks. Its not how much torque its how you use it........ get a pick-up and put something big and heavy in it. Try to show off to the kids at the local fast food place and you can shift your arm off and never get over 25mph in de parking lot. YOU won't win any races with truck trannies around town.......... but you will sound like a trucker ........So the RT series aren't rated at any more torque than the FS series fullers? Crud...... Oh well, It's probably one of those deals where it's so over-built it wont matter anyway...
So, if the price is right, a 610 is still a good buy, just a little noisier (though, with dual straight-piped stacks, I doubt I'll notice. ) and 60 lbft less torque. (woopy-ding....)
Not sure 435 lbft is all that much?? that's best case for a factory rating. I would expect a little more with different injectors and an intercooler, but nothing spectacular. I'll probably still be under the 600 lbft my clutch is rated for, and the 660 the transmission is rated for. Even if I make more than that it'll probably hold together just fine for my use....I just don't want to break it... but, after hearing how much torque Griggs Detroit is putting out, I'm not worried anymore...
Yep, you had torque ftlb confused with RPM. I made an earlier post stating (for a Silver 53 series) that peak HP was at 2,500 rpm and torque was at 1,500, but I forgot the RPM part, (I have corrected that post)Oh, I thought your 4-53T was waayyyyyy higher than that........ My mistake..
I thought I remembered you saying that the 4-53T was in like the 1000+ range.
