A Study of Drivetrain Cost Comparisons Using Data Bank Information 720910

A different approach to the study of drivetrain cost comparisons is presented, using 175 units operating within two fleets. Engine, transmission, clutch, driveshaft, universal joint, etc., were identical, item for item; the exceptions being identical brake types but different manufacture and differences in the manufacture of chassis.
All units were serviced by the same mechanics. Use of a data bank by the mechanics gave a true cost/mile for the two fleets compared, and showed that good record keeping would provide fleet managers continued benefits.
