George Morrison is buddies with Lee Mitchell who works on a service truck for WW Williams in Albany. As I understand it, Lee previously came to BB in Fort Valley as the Allison tech rep. Someone could try to work through George to see if he could get Lee to come to Pine Mountain.

The if the interest on this post will jump up in numbers, for having it done at WOG, then I will work on getting an Allison Dealer there.

Same thing here. I had mine done last year and wish it was set to 6th. I'll get it done at pine mountain if available.

Sean, someone should jump all over this. It took longer for the tech to access the plug than to load the program.....if the passwords good
WW Williams would probably be a good place to start. I'm local so if you need help holler

If you run in the mountains I think you want it downshifting to 5th.
That way if you select the jake brake on, the shift pad shifts to 5th, and then when you shut the jake switch off, the shift pad selects 6th automatically, you don't have to do anything.

If you want more braking you select 4th (or 3rd or 2nd)manually, but then you have to reselect 6th, manually, when you don't want the extra braking. So if you had it programed to remain in 6th, you would have to manually select 5th (which I think you would want most times), then manually select 6th gear after you shut the Jake off.

Again, my experience would be if you run in the mountains, you want 5th as the programmed shift, 4th often gives too much braking for a long grade.
