Much as I love and enjoy poking Tony, that one was not mine. I think it was Charlie.

Yup, it was Charlie! Nice one!
Admit it, with him and Bob, it’s a length thing....

What is this.....pick on Tony month? That's okay, I can take it.

Not Charlie (Spicestream) but Dan (Smartstream), another wisecracking Brit; I'm surrounded!

Easy on boys, them there are women mods on this forum that will shut this thread down if you keep this up.

As for Allison envy......I might just have that covered; and raise you a 7.8L. I'm working on it as we speak........

Cheers
Tony

Easy Tony, not a Brit. My family was one of the first 50 that settled in Grande Royal. They were from France but today are known as Acadians or Acadie. We received royal treatment because of our name when we visited the area a few years back. My father was born in northern Alberta in the town of Athabasca. My mother on the other hand has origins in Naples, as in Italy.

While we are talking about size envy, remember I drive a smart. lol:

Those of us 36 foot long DP guys also enjoy an extra wide ratio!

Read it and weep!

First 3.49 : 1
Second 1.86 : 1
Third. 1.41 : 1
Fourth. 1 : 1
Fifth. .75. : 1
Sixth. .65 : 1

Think my differential is 3.53 : 1

The MD3060 Allison really impressed me on the first test drive. Spartan choose well on the EC2000 chassis. Itís performed flawlessly in the mountains or on the flats. They are very common in everything from school busses to garbage trucks. Very durable if serviced as recommended.

Itís a big beast but if I were considering a retrofit, Iíd look into it.

Yeah, the MD3060 is by far one of the best transmissions ever built....I would consider a swap into the 370LE, but the electronics nightmare for the conversion would be overwhelming for me....I"m still going with the Detroit 8.2 L turbo/ Allison 645 swap. This set up has been bullet proof for me for 28 years in a work truck application. Regards, Bob

No problem Mike. My wife of 41 years is 1/2 Norwegian and 1/2 British so I guess some of it has rubbed off on me.

Good post.
16” I have see for sale locally.
I’m always watching for the 19.5 x 6 ten lug wheels.
