According to Muncie, the new Eaton Endurant and Paccar transmission require a seal plate gasket to withstand the specialty oil (Eaton PS386) used by the transmission. For this reason, a seal plate gasket is used instead of a paper gasket for the compatible TG and 82 Series.
Beyond its ability to withstand the specialty oil used by the transmission, Muncie says the seal plate gasket also allows the installer to mount the PTO without checking backlash. This seal plate gasket is part of a cooperative design effort between Eaton and Muncie Power Products, the company says.
Both the modified TG and 82 Series PTOs are available in air shift only. Muncie says the TG Series is available in seven speed ratios, and the 82 Series in six speed ratios, for the Eaton Endurant and Paccar transmission. For the 82 Series, its one-, three- and five- assembly arrangements are available, the company adds.
