'81 Peterbilt 362

This is my dads truck. He bought it a couple years ago cuz he got a good deal on it and we've done little to it besides have the wheels polished and a new set of rubber. The truck is really strait and tight but has been sitting for a number of years. It has a 400hp A Cat and a 13 speed. I recently acquired access to a shop so I'll be working at getting this truck road ready. The plan is to swap out the fuel tanks to some nicer ones and move them to the stock location, mount a set of full fenders, and swap the running gear out to a 3406B and 15 speed.




There's a fine line between genius and fruitcake.... I try to walk that line

They have never made a low inertia 15spd, it would either be a RT, RTO, or a RTX.

Do all the Rto's have the top gear against the dash?

The double over Fullers do unless they have the conversion, or "X" cover I've seen and had.

An overdrive 9 or 10 should be up against the dash, a RTX has the top plate changed to allow a normal shift pattern.
