Rent a tranny jack. All the internal components are available. the tranny swap is easy, make sure the clutch is good, no use pulling the tranny twice.
first off, what type of trans do you have ( manftr / speeds-gears ) with that type of horse power i hope it's an 18 speed. if you don't have a trans cooler - get one! this will help. remember all that horse power breaks things. use it only when neccesary. my 87 359 has 500hp and my 88 379 has 675hp. easy is the key to cool.
Depends on the make and model of the engine, not the truck.
Whichever one has the more powerful drivetrain setup. I mean, you take a Kenworth and a Peterbilt, give them the same engine, transmission, rear end gears, and tires, you're not going to notice any power difference.
Overall, a Western star truck is a tougher truck than a Peterbilt.
Try a Peterbilt dealership.
Change speed? It has to be done at a shop. They plug computer to truck and change speed with the computer.
Automatic Transmission Fluid meeting DOT3 specifications.
That truck should have the 700R4 transmission in it.
There are many different Peterbilt trucks. Be more specific.
One can acess a great deal of Peterbilt truck dealerships in Ontario, Canada. One Peterbilt truck dealership is located on 7 Cochrane Drive (Waterloo).

Yes. That's the whole purpose of a glider, so that you can get a current truck and use a pre-emissions engine in it.
