For those of you with an Allison 1000 or 2100 that want to do the 5k change or just change the filter I have a kit available for you. I hope to have some 1/2 bottles soon so you don't have to buy a full quart of Transynd.



It's available on my Web Site - Product Catalog

Update on Transynd prices--

Today the Allison dealer in my area wants $55.92/gal plus tax.

I found BP Autran Syn 295 for $138.00/5 gal bucket, plus tax.

Both products are authorized for the 1000 transmission.

I saw a question earlier-- can't find it now-- which asked what size oil pan do I have? Shallow or deep?

If you get the transmission serial number off the tag on the passenger side of the tranny, go to the Allison site Here , enter the serial number and it will state the size, ie: 37-586 OIL PAN GRP-STD DEEP OIL-- (This is my tranny).
Good luck all,

John,

I am not sure why an Allison dealer would tell you not to use Transynd, it came standard in our '07 coach. I don't think that WRV would go to the extra expense if the Allison factory did not recommend it. There are better reasons to use it, than just the extended service intervals.

Mike,

Is the Rykon 46 the premium? Chevron's new name is Rando, HDZ for the premium. I just bought another 5 gal to change with new filters after having metal in the system and didn't want to take any chances. The shop guy first gave me Rando HD, which is the non premium and it was a few dollars more than the premium. The premium is needed for its "multigrade" properties.

I purchased by the gallon for $34.43 each at Brattain International Trucks in Salem Oregon on 2/3/09. Funny thing is if you purchased the five gallon pail it worked out to over $37 a gal.

I finally got around to buying 10 gal of TranSynd up here in the high desert. It was $37/gal. OK by me. My neighbor and I had been talking about filters. He has a fairly new Beaver. He bought his from NAPA. He paid over $100. He has the 4 inch pan and mine is the 2 incher. I went on the internet and got a set for $68. Seemed good. In reading all of everyone's comments on Allison filters and such, I checked at the truck shop where I bought the TranSynd. They were $48! Sometimes prices are interesting. I plan to do a double drain so I will be over 75% synthetic.

Does anybody know if the 2005 came from WRV with Transynd in the transmission? Can you tell the difference by looking at it?

Ref the "double drain" concept, there are probably a lot opinions on how to get the hightest concentration of Transynd--flushing the hoses and rad/cooler being the best option. However for change-over on our 2003, I swapped Transynd and both filters, then 25,000 miles later, changed out the Transynd and both filters again. At $30-40 a pop for Transynd, it seemed like a waste to swap-out back to back. OK--I didnt get the "benefits" of a full Transynd swap during the first 25,000 but am not sure it is worth it...I'd also like to think that by changing twice, you would get better than a 75% concentration of Transynd.

Ours came from WRV with Transynd and has a tag showing this on the dipstick handle area.

Our 05 came with transynd from the factory. There was a sticker at the dipstick and I confirmed it with the factory at the time.

Be careful with the type of filters you buy. The ones with Gold Series stamped on the top are much more expensive than the standard ones (and are worth the extra $ in my opinion). The Gold Series allow you to go 75,000 miles without changing. Our coach came with the standard filter. I replaced it at 5000 miles with the Gold Series.
