    I have recently purchased a f-250 1986 with A 390 CARBED :love: 4X4 with a EATON splitter switch on the gear shifter.
    it has a 4 speed in it. I looked under it and it has something I have NEVER SEEN BEFORE IN A MED DUTY TRUCK.
    I drive a big rig so I am familiar with Eaton splitters. but not ones attached on drivelines.
    I have contacted Eaton they were no help.....sold that dept to Dayna....????
    the wires have come off and the unit doesn't seem to work.
    would love to find a wiring diagram for this unit so I can trouble shoot it and hopefully get it to shift.

    Get pictures.
    Specifically a data plate, if there is one.

    I will have to look again when I can wash it. I haven't seen anything on the sides of the housing. I will try to post a pic or two SOON.

    An '86 F250 with a 390? I guarantee that's not the original engine, Ford stopped installing FE big blocks in the 1976 model year, so someone along the way in that truck's life would have built it, and likely hobbled together whatever they thought was cool, you might be COMPLETELY Porked.

    An F250 also isn't a 'medium duty truck' it's a light duty; you'd need to be in the F450-500 -to-F800 to be 'medium duty'.

    But it is a f250, so he's in the right forum.

    Technically TO ME compacts are light duty (ie: yoda, s10, ranger, etc)
    Which you knew what he meant, so don't be a SA. LOL

    Well, of course I did, but HONESTLY who in the hell uses a min-truck for anything but driving to and from work, or to the store? cookoo LOL



    Besides, in a world where a LTL9000 can be pulling an 80,000lb GVW, the paltry like 10,000lb range the F250 can do, comparing them is madness. :rotflmao:rotflmao

    True, but I've used a s10 to pull fairly big loads. Lol

    But anyways, I think the original poster is gone.
