I think I answered my own question. I found this after a little vigorous Google searching:

"When a compressor pumps one "CFM" (cubic foot per minute), that means the intake port inhales one cubic foot of "free air" (air at atmospheric pressure, which is 0 psig) per minute. (Note: A CFM does not mean in any sense the compressed volume.) So the unit really measures the mass of air flowing per minute, not volume per minute, since a cubic foot of free air is a unit of mass. Some people labor under a stubborn misundertanding that these units refer to the flow of compressed volume (as opposed to free air volume), but this is flatly wrong. The confusion arises because the term "cubic foot" sounds like a measure of volume, when in fact this term in this context is an abbreviation for "the mass of a cubic foot of atmospheric air", which is a measure of mass."

I'm inclined to believe this, because everything you read on the internet is true, right?  Cheesy

I'll go with this answer unless I hear differently from anyone. Hopefully me asking the question will be helpful to someone down the road.

I think I read someplace that Prevost makes a kit to beef up the back end so you can pull 20,000#.  I'm not sure if that also increases the tongue weight capacity as well.....but the general rule of thumb is 10% of the trailer weight should be your tongue weight.

Hi guys,

I'm in the process of replacing my air bath air cleaner with a Donaldson Eco filter. I've got that part all squared away.

My engine-mounted air compressor (Truflo 700) also gets its air from the air bath housing, so I'm going to get a separate air filter intake/silencer for it once the air bath is removed. The Truflo 700 is a 15.5 CFM compressor. This may seem like a stupid question, but if I get a filter intake housing rated for 35 CFM, it shouldn't restrict anything, right? There's no rule about how much input CFM is related to output CFM or anything like that, is there?

I think it should work fine, but I just don't want there to be some factor I'm not considering. Thanks in advance.

I also have a friend also shopping for a nicer new 12-15 KWH water cooled 1800 rpm, (max) propane gen set for her off grid kinda remote PV farm homestead out here in SW OR USA.  They want $MORE$ than for a nicer barely used smaller car!  What happened to all the good RV part bargains?

Is there any way one could consider all of those standard and heavy duty SAE PTO take off points all over our Bus automatic and manual transmissions?  Could not some Engineer type Bus Conversion person work up a large generator running off of such?  Knowing what you doing helpful.  HB of CJ (old coot)

Could it be the three (3) speed auto that has that lock up clutch in second, (2nd) or third? (3rd)  That might make it sound, feel and tachometer operate like a four speed.  First convertor, (1st) second convertor, (2nd)  then second lock up, (2nd LU) then third, (3rd LU) or high lock up.

I also think or remember some of the 730 automatics could be modulated to have the lock up function in first gear?  This would be very handy coming down slow steep grades where a Jake Brake would be nice.  Like already said better before me, the 730 is like a 740 only with no first gear? 

Different models within a family also had different options.  Some heavy fire apparatus had the older HT740 4 speed Allision that had the lock up option in every gear along with the convertor mode to increase acceleration.  Those trannys felt and sounded like a 7 or 8 speed.  HB of CJ (old coot)

I am going to look at a 4106 with a 6v92 and a 4 speed auto? I do not see any talk of other  auto trans than the v730 (and the 2 speed).

Are there 4 speeds auto that fit int he 4106 ?
