Easy peasy. Obviously get a new gasket and I guess a new pan, unless it can be welded.

Unless I missed something the passenger side dropped free but the drivers side would only come down about 1/2". Have you had one off.
Thanks Jack

Jack,
Sorry I cant help you out with the pan, but carefully check the torque specs for the bolts when you go back with the new pan.

I just removed all the bolts on the pan and filters to see if maybe I missed a bolt. Same results. Drivers side will not drop free.

Here is the manual:

Note that there are instructions on how to use your touch pad to check the transmission fluid level. I did not realize that for quite a few years.

Anybody with a crack or damage to your Allison pan should take it to a Allison shop. This is not just a fluid pan it has numerous channels and tunnels on it. It does not just unbolt. This is the control module. Motor home in shop now.
Thanks Jack

I owe you an apology with regards to my easy peasy reply. After your comment, I read the directions on changing the filters and forgot they are replaced with the rest of the cover in place and that is obviously what I did.
