Notes : Tested with "Elephant Ears" (1982-1983). The units had shrouds mounted to the back of the long hood. The idea behind the shrouds was that they could draw cooler air for the radiators from down low in tunnels, rather than pulling in hot air which had been warmed by the exhaust of units. The shrouds were found to be not very effective and were removed in October 1983. Retired (3/2007). Sold to Larry's Truck & Electric (11/2008).
