trucks built with assorted Eaton Fuller Transmission models
may be equipped with an airline not properly crimped at the
swivel fitting. Eaton says the hose may disconnect while under
pressure causing a leak in the secondary air system.
hoses in question are plumbed from the A-5000 Slave valve mounted
on the driver's side of the transmission to the air filter regulator
and range cylinder on the rear of the transmission.
Inspect all transmission airline fittings on trucks fitting
the build date profile below to ensure proper crimping.
Trucks: heavy-duty trucks with RT/RTO/RTLO transmissions with
serial number prefix K (example Kxxxxx) built between March
1, 2002 and April 15, 2002.
Strategy: On affected trucks, Eaton Fuller will allow a half
hour labor for inspection and replacement when necessary of
the suspect hoses. Warranty claims may be filed through standard
OEM warranty procedures.
