Will it pull?

Post #1 by Harte3 » Wed Jul 21, 2010 2:39 pm

It certainly will. Bought a 1991 Blue Water boat on an EZ-Loader trailer, loaded the truck with all the camping gear and supplies for two families for five days and headed north to one of our favorite spots East of Colville, WA on Hwy. 20...a 2 1/2 hour drive from our house in Spokane. Pulled down to and held 1200 rpm MOL on several hills without a downshift. Had several 6% MOL grades that called for 3rd hole running. Temperatures in the mid 80's and the idiot temp gauge barely moved off it's usual spot and then not until we got back to in-town driving to the house. No change in oil pressure.

Upon arrival back in Spokane I filled the truck and boat gas tanks and then I weighed the whole outfit minus one passenger and about 200# of supplies used. The truck weighed 5360# and the trailer 3600# total GVW 8960#. MPG of 12.1. No oil usage (5w-30), no coolant usage. Other than getting a bit of a roll from a dead stop in the first hole (granny gear), driving around town was little different than when running empty with upshifts between 1500-2000 rpm and cruising in the top hole on 30 mph streets at about 1000 rpm...no problem.

Engine bored 30 over and fitted with hyper pistons. Mild P/P on head, three angle valve job with 30* back cut and a port match. Head and block milled for truing and clean-up. Offy DP with a Holley 1848-1 465 cfm 4v carb and EFI exhaust manifolds. Comp 260h cam and lifter kit. Mallory HyFire 6a ignition, ACCEL coil, Taylor Spiro wires and NGK EFI spark plugs gapped @ 50. Three-way Cat and a generic turbo muffler all 2 1/2 inch in and out.

Will it pull? Piece of cake.

what kind of truck?

I just weighed my 95 300-6 and it was 3800 pounds...pretty light, lighter than I thought...no wonder it bounces all over when it aint loaded

Harte3, may I ask what the rear end ratio is in your truck and are you running stock tires? Do you have any qualms about braking with your rig loaded like that?

Howard is a card-carrying long haul truck driver; his trailer has brakes and he drives sensibly. I forget the gear ratio, am curious as well.

I love that our bigsixes will pull forever and a day, last time i pulled anything was when i had my bmw on a racecar trailer, lets say truck weighs 3800 car is 3200 and that big ole trailer was at least 1500. Thats around 8500lbs altogether, the only thing i really had qualms with and if it wasn't necessary at the time i wouldn't have cause the suspension really drooped on the truck and couldn't pull up the hills like i needed it to. Nothing like what you were going through. The only reason i think the truck had a slow time pulling up hill was because it theAO4DE if I'm not mistaken and i couln't really hit that sweet spot in the rpm range. Well, lol before i really understood my truck and the 2.90 gears in the rear.

I am not far behind you with a 3.08 rear gear...I am looking for a 3.55 to swap...that should make pulling easier...the current setup is a little hard on the clutch taking off with a heavy trailer...

well when I'm able to I have 3 specific things that i want to do to my truck, just so i can make it more tow capable.

#1)Heavy duty leaf springs
#2)Like yourself 3.55 gears
#3)A manual transmission

I thiink those three things would net me some really good results, especially the first two, the last one is more for durability.
Its kind of odd that i have a truck with an auto considering all my vehicles before were manual that i bought, but then agian the truck was traded to me for my 99 eclipse by my dad because the truck gets less than half the milelage of the eclipse and he does 90mile round trip each day.

I also wanna do the manual with the right gearing to maybe gain a little more milelage. even with the higher 3.55 gear ratio.

Harte3, good work. Too bad some folks need 2 more cylinders to get a simple job done! Always heard the area around Colville was nice country.

Beemer+ford6lover, is that "AO4DE" trans a model E4OD or AOD-E? A 3.73 rear axle might be even more effective, and you wouldn't have to (or even want to) change the trans.

As far as the H.D. leaf springs go... did you pick up on MaxRat's comment, "no wonder it bounces all over when it ain't loaded"? BTDT/PITA! For a truck that's used empty at least as often as it's loaded, I'd rather go with air spring overloads that can be adjusted to a wide range of load conditions. Been using AirLift products for a long time http://www.airliftcompany.com/index.php They make & sell good stuff.

With a 300 it has to be an E4OD which has a 0.71:1 OD ratio. A set of 3.55 gears will put him almost exactly at 2000 RPM at 65 MPH with stock tires. I'm running 3.73s with 30" tires but they would actually be a skosh too much with stock rubber

Honestly I have a built AOD I thought about swapping for the M5OD tranny I have...I just cannot stand the 40mph reverse...thats what is seems like backing up and you're always slipping the clutch to ease in places...

ah yes JR and Stranger ranger Its not AO4DE its the E4OD I'm sitting here last night thinking about a million and one things and must have just combined the two in my head. Sorry its getting toward the end of the semester for me in school and my brain is becoming fried.

Is the E4OD good for towing, I could have sworn i read somewhere that there was problem with it for towing? I'll be damned if i can actually remember what the problem was off the top my head though. My head is just full of statistic and differential equations at the moment.

Many :thanks: for the compliments :D . Everything that went into my build was gleaned from this Forum.

Who can do the math for me on the rear end ratio since I am challenged in that area? 30-32 mph at 1000 rpm on 23575R15 tires.

Trailer is an EZ-Loader made here in Spokane. It is equipped with surge brakes that work quite well. I have one adjustment to make...move the axle back to transfer some weight to the hitch as the weight distribution is not quite right. The boat engine is a 4.3 GMC ( :oops: ) Mercruiser stern drive and hangs out just a bit too far behind the trailer axle for proper handling....getting a slight "tail-wagging-the-dog" between 55 and 60 mph. With the whole set loaded as described the truck and trailer are right at level front to back with no "bow steer" on the truck. My truck weighs 4200# empty with full tanks, a fiberglass topper and me at the wheel.

Northern and eastern WA, the ID Panhandle, and western MT have 5 Star camping and fishing. For our next and last big outing for the year we are considering Curlew Lake in Ferry County or sneaking over to Joe's neighborhood on the Pend Oreille.

Probably a 2.73 (8.8") or a 2.75 (9"). The 2.73 works out to 2135 @ 65 MPH with those tires.

If you really need to know jack up one rear wheel (assuming an open diff) put the tranny in neutral, make a chalk mark on the driveshaft and turn the raised wheel by hand through 2 full revolutions and count the revs of the driveshaft. 2-3/4 revs is a 2.73 or 2.75.

If you have a Trac-Lok LSD you have to jack up both rear wheels and turn them through only one full revolution.

And yes that whole area around Colville is beautiful. I got a very nice black bear just outside of Northport a couple of decades back

Thanks SR. That sounds about right for 65 mph. My speedometer runs out about 2 mph faster than actual ground speed according to the radar reader boards around town and a check between mile markers. BTW it pulls 8-10 hg of vacuum at a 60 mph cruise on the level and no wind to contend with with this load and the cheap narrow band AFR gauge showing stoich/lean. I don't think I need to change a thing as far as rear gear ratio is concerned. I am pleased with the way it runs.

Your overall top gear ratio is approximately the same as that of an M5OD and 3.27 or 3.31 gears. Several posters on this and other sites have reported excellent fuel mileage with that combo, in general far better than the M5OD with either 3.08 or 3.55 gears. There is some loss of towing capacity vs. the 3.55 but your tranny is so much stronger than the M5OD that it should not be evenly remotely an issue in your case

i've towed many a car with my '93 F150, the only problem i've ever had with the E4OD is my trans cooler lines keep springing leaks, i've killed two transmissions already :nono:

The later the E4OD the better by 95 they were virtually bulletproof. It went through a lot of upgrades from 89 to 95. here's a list:
http://www.becontrols.com/tech/ch6e4odinfo.htm

The one thing to be careful of is its tendency to hunt back and forth between direct and OD. This tends to happen mostly in hilly country with heavy loads. If it does, simply push the "OD Off" button on the end of the gear selector lever and run in direct. Kiss your fuel mileage goodbye but gas is cheaper than tranny rebuilds. If it's not hunting, leave it in OD.

Spent a few hours moving the trailer axle back 6" and the winch stand ahead 2". Reweighed the set though this time my truck was empty...4400# for the truck and 3460# on the trailer. The adjustments moved 140# to the hitch with total hitch weight right now at about 200#...just right. Hitch height went from 19 1/8" to 18 3/4" Tried 'er out on the big road on the way back up to 70 mph...nary a bobble. When I measured everything up before making the adjustments, the axle was 5/8" out of alignment from one side to the other. It's dead-square now and pulls arrow straight.

Shifting goes like this: Just get it rolling in granny with a quick shift to second where it picks up at about 800-1000 rpm. Next upshifts can be done at 1500-2000 rpm. This all depends on the terrain...hard pulls up hill and I might go 2500-3000 rpm before on an upshift. I have pulled it down to and held at about 1200 rpm on some inclines that I'm guessing are between 3% MOL without shifting out of road gear to 3rd.

My White Ox has JC Whitney 4000 rpm tach with the 4" diameter face and about 270º of sweep; it has pretty good resolution.

I was just wondering because all of my cars with manual transmissions had one and it makes me feel more comfortable to see it in action while I'm driving so i can see what exactly my engine is up to. All the talk about everyone monitoring the tachometer now has me wondering where my rpms are at for speeds what not.

In some ways it is only a matter of satisfying curiosity. In another way, it may only be a marketing gadget for cars since many newer vehicles come with a tach. Our 2004 Taurus and my daughter's Subaru Outback both have tachs. What for, I don't really know. I've watched a tach dial and the coolant, oil, and exhaust temp gauges for years driving big trucks. Engine speed is critical especially pulling heavy loads in mountain terrain both uphill and down since the rpm range is very limited on the big diesels when compared to a gas powered car. Between the tach, the vacuum gauge, and the temp gauge I can determine the operating "norms" of my engine under a variety of conditions...which does satisfy my curiosity and it helps me drive in a manner I consider most efficient and how hard I can lean on it without harm to the engine...just like with a big truck. Is a tach an absolute necessity? No..but it is an additional tool to use. If I had to chose between a tach and a vacuum gauge, I would opt for the vacuum gauge.
