Clam was here. Haven't logged in for two years. Excursion has been running two years without issues. Glad to be rid of the 7.3. Towed Seattle to Alaska, Alaska to South Carolina and back to Alaska. Now it just goes to town for groceries. Still need to make another towing run to Seattle and back though.
If I were to do it again, I wouldn't. I'd just buy a semi tractor and get it overwith.
Issues: cooling system is too big and too small. Cold in winter, hot when towing in the summer. Allison works perfectly stand alone. Should be able to make the ECM and TCM communicate on this exact setup, but there's a bad wire somewhere and I got tired of looking for it. It works fine as is.
