I try to avoid asking stupid questions but I really don't know the answer to this one so here goes... on a Super Duty dually, say your in a pinch without a spare tire or the spare is flat can you take off one of the duals on the rear and put it up front in an emergency? As in if you had one of the fronts go flat or had a blow out up front? Just so you are able to get to a tire shop to get your regular tire fixed. Someone told me you could but I think its fishy... but looking at the rims it looks like the rear is the same as the front just turned around backwards on the outside rear.
Thank you for my stupid question for today.
Now something more serious. What temps you guys running on the tranny for a 6.0? Mine has been running around 165 but now with the heat wave its been around 175 today running lite. So what is considered a high temp for the 5 speed torqshift? I also noticed that when my coolant got up to 210 the fan kicked on but that was with the tranny at 175 and the oil temp at 216, after a few minutes with the fan running then cutting out the temps were C:198, O:203, T: 165. Do these look right?
