Muncie T-Gauge KitNov 9th, 2012 | By Editorial Staff | Category: New Products
With the advent of “live power” PTOs comes the possibility of the unwanted sound of gear rattle. This annoying rattle normally disappears when the PTO is activated or the engine speed is increased, however, during normal truck operations the sound may be bothersome.
To counter the effects, Muncie Power has engineered noise-reducing technology into every FR66 PTO. Even with this new technology however, the reduction in gear rattle depends as much on the spacing tolerances of the entire system as it does on our specially engineered PTO.
Muncie Power found that refining the installation procedure by eliminating spacing issues between the transmission and the PTO provided the best possible solution to this troublesome issue. To ensure proper spacing during installation, Muncie engineers created an easy-to-use tool known as the T-Gauge Installation Kit for the Ford 6R140, 6-speed transmission and Muncie FR66.
