Section III. PRINCIPLES OF OPERATION
Figure 1-12. Powertrain
Power for the vehicle is provided by a diesel engine (1, Figure 1-12) which is coupled directly to an automatic
transmission (2). Power from the automatic transmission is transferred to the transfer case (3) and on to the front
steering and rear drive axles (4, 5, and 6) through a series of drive shafts and universal joints. The vehicle drive train
is enhanced by the use of an electronically controlled seven-speed transmission. The primary components of the
Allison MD3070PT transmission consist of either a WTEC II Transmission Electronic Control Unit (ECU) Pushbutton
Shift Selector (WTEC II TEPSS) or a WTEC III Transmission Pushbutton Shift Selector (WTEC III TPSS) coupled with
a WTEC III transmission ECU; a control module located directly beneath the transmission main housing; a Throttle
Position Sensor (TPS) which detects the percentage of throttle being used; engine, turbine, and output speed sensors
which, in combination with each other, send information to the ECU to provide the smoothest possible shifting and allow
the ECU to monitor overall transmission performance.
