    What trans model are we working on?

    Fault code logged?

    How far was the unit driven before the failure occurred?

    Eaton is the Manufacturer not the trans Model.

    Troubleshooting and service information is available online and free @ EATON ROADRANGER

    FC 35 is for J1939 datalink wiring issue and has nothing to do with the clutch. You are likely looking at a issue on the F/L side of the trans wiring.

    Near impossible to install an Eaton automated clutch disc backward. It would not release or even move when you got it back together. The inner disc doesn't even separate from the pressure plate.

    Is that the old clutch? Throwout bearing is broken in two? Did the worn input shaft get replaced? FC 27 has reoccured with the new clutch?
