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.

That depends on what model of truck it is, and what motor it has in it.
From my research, I can't locate a specific place to rent out a Peterbilt truck. However, their website - http://www.peterbilt.com/index.aspx - has a large amount of information, as well as a phone number to call for information (800) 4-PETERBILT.
The 4L80E transmission
the peterbilt company
That depends on the specifications of the truck itself. A European truck built to haul heavy equipment loads is going to be built stronger than a Peterbilt designed to haul conventional freight, just as a Peterbilt built for heavy equipment loads will be stronger than a Scania, MAN, etc. designed to haul conventional freight.
That would be the 4L60E transmission.
Either the engine or the transmission must come out. If it is a 2 wheel drive truck, pull the transmission. If it is a 4 wheel drive truck, pull the engine. (IMO)
A straight truck can be up to 45 feet in length.
