First off thanks AllisonMan!
I have an unusual situation and after scouring the net I found this thread.
I am building a truck using a 1995 Cummins inline 6 cylinder 5.9L 12V with the P-Pump. I am going to build the engine to around 500Hp, and the truck will at one time or another have a trailer hooked up with about 15,000lbs and the truck could weigh 24,000 lbs. Although I am not going to drive with all of that weight all of the time I am going to have 500+Hp all of the time which I think leads me to a 4000 series trans.
My questions is if this has been done, I know the md3060 works but what about the 4000 series. Also I want the simplest mechanical based system as possible but I know most of these are computer controlled, is there an older model that was tough enough to handle my weight and power and had a simple system controlling it?
What else do I need to worry about, tachometer, speedometer,
I am building the internals of the 1939 gauges to have modern functionality but look original and was planning to use the gauges from my 1995 dodge ram 2500 (matched to the motor I am using) but how do I get it to read the proper speed.
Thank you in advance!
