Drive Train Repair & Replacements
In today’s modern world drivetrains have advanced like all systems on vehicles. In years past the drivetrain consisted of a manual transmission, which was disengaged using a foot paddle to release a clutch from the engine.While many trucks and equipment are still utilizing this system with much success. Today’s newer equipment has many more options like fully automatic transmissions, semi-automatic transmissions to manual automatic shift systems.
Manual transmissions require the operator to disengage the transmission utilizing a clutch and a shifter to select proper gearing.
Semi-Automatic transmissions require the operator to manually disengage the clutch. But shifting is done by electronics and air systems entirely without the use of a shifter only push buttons.
Manual automatic systems do not require the operator to disengage the clutch system. These tasks are done completely from the transmission control module and air systems. The driver is left to only select forward or reverse directions.
Fully automatic transmissions are systems, which are integrated with computers built into the transmissions. Which control the proper gearing is utilized for optimum performance. Allison is the industry leader and we have the OE Allison manufacturing software to read, troubleshoot, perform factory updates and reprogram the TCM.
Differentials: These are the used to transfer the actions of the engine and transmission to the motion of the vehicle on the ground. Differentials have also become extremely complex also.
The differential is comprised off several larger and smaller gears, which must be timed correctly to mesh effectively and efficiently. Our technicians here are constantly trained to hone their skills on all drivetrain components to insure proper function and effectiveness.
