Allison Filter PN?

Anyone know what filters I need for an 05 Alpine with a MD3000MH Allison.
Not sure if I need the 295498988 or the 295498987. Cummings NW used FG 35153 not sure if the FG filter is up to spec or not.

Dont recall the PN but its the filter for the shorter 2" pan not the 4"--which makes the filter about 4" long. Cant speak to FG filters but the Allison filters are designated as "GoldSeal" extended service. They come in a service packs of two but with Transyn you are only replacing the "lube" filter every 25K miles, so two changes in a pack. Accordingly, the difference in PNs you are talking about could be either the 2-4" pan or the regular Vs extended service type.

In September when I replaced trans fluid I went to a Freightliner Service shop and purchased transmission filters. The parts man entered the vin number for my RV and the machine told him which filters. It was $52.67 for the two filter set including the gaskets & O rings. The part number listed on the invoice is 29548988. The two filters in that package are identical - the two filters are interchangeable so said the parts man.

Very interesting--once again the facts get in the way of being "right!" Now totally confused, I called the Allison Tech Center today and they suggested "most" MH owners just change out fluid and filters every three years [assumes we never meet either the severe conditions or the mileage criteria in a 36 month period]. Otherwise, you are changing filters at 36 months [replaces about half yr fuild doing the change], then the following year, doing just the fuild, with or w/out filters. Seems to make more sense to just keep the filters and fluid on 3-year schedule. This forum sure keeps a fellow humble!

My filters are 6 months over due. I am going to get an analysis on the trans fluid before I change them. If it is indicated I will drain the remaining oil at the same time.

Thanks for all the input, it appears I need the 2 inch kit # 295498987. It is my understanding the difference is the depth of the oil pan.

Now I just need to find a 5 gallon bucket of TES295.
