|Dylanss180||I am monitoring it, I have a temp probe in one of the PTO covers. I was towing my RV last week at 75mph in 6th and it was getting warm (220F) and it was around 75 outside. The Eaton Manual says to have it operate 120f above ambient.|

Are you monitoring the oil temp in the tranny and therefore the oil cooler or was it just to add a safety factor? Isn't it nice to get in your truck and not have to worry about what your transmission is going to do.
The Fuller's seem to like hauling and towing and with the Cummins, it's a good match.
I agree that the 2000 and 3000 series Allison trannys are a good option. Even cores are over a $1000 if you can find one. I was watching an auction and two 2500's went for $2750 ea.

|Dylanss180||Ill report in also. I did my swap a year ago and still no regrets here also. I ended up adding a tranny cooler on mine because I would tow in 6th gear going 75mph for hours on end. Still enjoy the tranny here as well. I was toying with an idea of getting a Dodge 5500 and swap in an allison tranny. Not sure what size but was thinking a 3000 series. I wanted to do an auto for the wife to be able to drive easier.|

That's good to hear, I've been looking at this thread for awhile now, but I'm looking more into an older style 13 speed myself, more of a custom factor for my use but also for great towing performance and reliability. (And I used to drive a 13 speed in a Pete so it's second nature to me.) I have just yet to find the exact model I'm looking for or gathered all the conversion parts. I need to do more model number research checking gear ratios and such, I prefer the ol silver knob Fuller 13's with the 3 position side switch. [emoji41]

Just checking in to see how things are going.
Had 26 telephone poles on my 40 ft trailer this week. Grossing over 30K. That FSO6406A is fantastic. No issues whatsoever, quiet, and no gear rattle. Turned radio off just to enjoy the ride. My truck will be 20 yrs old soon and I'll be 75 after the first of the year.
I'm currently building a 1996 12V VE Cummins that I've already sold. It's destined for a 2004 Chev 4500 with a 1000 Allison.
Picked up another Frito Lay truck (free) with a great running 3.9. Plans are to install it in my 1942 Chev G506.
If you're sitting on the fence contemplating if you should bite the bullet and do a trans conversion, go ahead you won't have any regrets.
Only current fix needed on my truck is the turbo is leaking oil ... need to get it replaced.

Here are a few 6 speed trannies but they don’t say what exactly they are.
To answer the last post, it worked with my setup.

Will a standard barring tool work with the different flywheel and housing used in this transmission swap?

|whateverpratt||So I picked up a couple of the small 5 speeds for super cheap. I got an fs4005b and an fs4205a. I read through this thread a couple of years ago, and I'm intrigued by the thought of swapping first gear in either of the trannies for an overdrive gear. I know it's possible with the 6 speeds, but I didn't know if anyone had really looked into doing the same thing with any of the smaller 5 speeds.|
