The three-phase iiquid-coolec 313kW traction motor produces 1,632 Ib-ft after it passes through the 3 1 reduction gearbox. An Eaton 10-speed transmission takes over from there.

Everything from the transmission back is stock on this retrofitted '03 Freightliner Columbia. It will be interesting to see the actual fuel economy this truck gets...

Strength Training

In the beginning, Cummins-powered Dodge trucks wiped out torque converters. Then the weak link moved to the input shafts. That led shops like Sun Coast to develop better converters and input shafts machined from billets of high-strength steel. These billet shafts, as they are often called, still weren't always strong enough. The Sun Coast OM3GA fixed this problem with the introduction of a larger-diameter input shaft. Increasing tie diameter of the input shaft meant custom pump gears had to be...
