out of all the forums i have been on, you guys seem to know the most these Allison transmissions.
long story short, i keep snapping clutch cables. the cable if great the first few days, then it starts binding and getting really hard. at the end of a hard days work the bottom of my foot is sore from clutching. i just want an automatic tranny. i originally planned on swapping in a electronic 2400. but due to a tight budget, i may just settle for MT643. a guy locally has one for $500 that came out of a Ford f600 that has a 429 motor in it.
are these torque converters mfg (motor) specific? will i have to find a TC for a cat 3126 motor or do i just need a cat flex plate setup designed for allison transmission.
i need reading this thread that has tons of good info
did the MT643 have an electronic speed sensor?
i found a floor shifter on ebay that has R N D 3 2 1 which should work.
i am not sure how my rear end gears will effect this or what gears i actually have. with the eaton 6 speed my top speed is around 75 mph.
i understand i may have to build a mount brace for it. my eaton just hangs in there. no mounts what so ever. ill build a mount bracket once i get it in.
did the MT643 have a rear parking brake option? my eaton has the rear park brake, but it never worked so i have a line lock. id really like to add a rear parking brake if i could.
i would also have to custom a transmission cooler. any suggestions on what size. i assume just get a universal aftermarket unit.
ill have to measure the overall length of my eaton and compare it to the mt643 hopefully its close enough i wont have to custom my driveshaft.
here is the transmission for sale locally
