  3. 4366 trans lube

    Where is the fill plug for the trans system ? Mine has a hose plumbed up to the normal fill plug location on a truck transmission . Thanks for the replies everyone
  4. 4366 trans lube

    The 4366 appears to have been updated to the 86 series lube system . Trans /diff/ transfer case all tied together . How can I add a pressure gage to monitor the pressure , and or a pressure switch somewhere to keep an eye on it . It has the sight glass in the front diff ,I think it could have been updated to pressure lube on the front diff . Tractor has about 10,000 hours , but many parts are new or rebuilt .
  5. DT466 Truck engine transplants

    4366 has a truck engine in it .
  6. 4366 trans lube

    Thanks everyone ,It seems to have some type of lube pump driven off the side of the transmission . The line feeds the front main pump , its really odd . what does the trans lube pump actually do ? The dump from the hydraulic levers is dumping on top of the pinion . Is this the updated pressure lube pinion ? Oil is clearly going in and out o the transmission.

  20. Navistar Engines Today

    Navistar killed them selves with low quality on the Maxxforce Dt , we had a bunch of them that would not make 200k miles . On the class 8 engine , the Maxxforce 13 was a disaster , the egr coolers would last about 80-100k miles on average . The turbos would go out fill the engine with oil , run away and blow up . The Maxxforce 13 was the worst engine we ever had ,Very complicated and troublesome . The newer Prostar trucks use ISX-15 , and the Smaller units use B-series cummins . Navistar still has a long way to go to have a quality ,reliable truck . this is despite the cummins Engine The engineering is Crude at best and the quality of materials is bottom of the barrel . They fill the roads of the large fleets ,because they are cheap . Its an insult to the International Harvestor co of years ago .
