Attention 24V owners

This has been discused once or twice on here, but i just wanted to make everyone aware that they should check/inspect there tranny lines and posative cable right above the crossmember under the tranny pan. I just had my posative cable that goes to the starter weld its slef to the crossmember, melt my ground cable going to the truck frame, and killed my 2 year old batteries. This was cause by chafing. One of my tranny lines also chafed the crossmemeber and put a hole in the tranny line. New line and posative cable going on tomorrow along with thick heater hose wrapped around them. Just want to give you guys a heads up that aren't aware of this hazzard. I am lucky my truck didn't catch on fire. So wether you have a 24V or even a 12V put this on your priority list!!!

NOTE: The posative cable with the double terminal that goes to the starter from the dealer at my wholesale cost (20% off list price) was $167 and change OUCH:

The tranny lines rubbing together is not a unknown problem. Pretty predictable.

I sometimes wish i had a six speed, but i can't complain about how well my tranny has been. Been very good to me. I flush the tranny every 50 thousand. truck has 108,000 miles on it and the TC only slipps once in a while one the highway, getting upgraded this spring though before it does decide to blow.

That kind of makes it fun. Room for mods.
