J390_199905
This document covers a dual dimensioning practice that provides both U.S. customary inch-pound units and SI metric units for all dimensions on the field of the drawing. The scope does not include the various methods by which computer programs are used for dual dimensioning. In one method that has had some usage, drawings are dimensioned in SI (metric) units, with conversions to U.S. customary inch-pound units provided in a computer-generated chart on the drawing.

Truck Tractor Semitrailer Interchange Coupling Dimensions

CURRENT
J701_201708
The information in this SAE Information Report is the result of studies by the Automobile Manufacturers Association, American Trucking Association, and Truck Trailer Manufacturers Association, to achieve interchangeability of equipment which will comply with the legal dimensional limitations for the majority of states and yet permit increased loading space within these dimensions. This in no way supersedes other information in the SAE Handbook on this subject. Some cases will require more care in application allowing splash shield clearance at trailer support interference points and positioning fifth wheel to allow trailer swing clearance on an 11% grade. All dimensions are given in inches. Table 1 and Figures 1 and 2 show basic requirements for interchangeability of truck tractor and semitrailer equipment. Figure 3 shows the interchangeability of the doubles converter dolly.
