Channel plate

Allison 3000 in a 05 Monoco Knight , 13 year owner.
I have to change channel plate due to a punture . Part on order ( ouch ). I have to replace and trying to understand how to disconnect feed thru harness / control cable when lowering the plate with floor jack .
I have changed lube/main filters in early 06

I plan on new gold filters. Internal suction filter kit , channel plate and gasket , not sure of anything else needed yet.

Original fluid was synthetic

The Gold filters are obsolete old stock. The current production are “high Capacity”.

No need to do anything with the suction filter. Just replace the two filters on the bottom of the transmission (main and lube). Use high-capacity filters.

The wiring harness should be a twist lock to connect to the chassis harness, disconnect that and the harness/stand will feed through the transmission case as the channel plate is lowered. There will be a couple of dowel pins that sometimes stick/bind in the case. There are also a couple of threaded jacking bolt holes in the channel plate to help break the channel plate loose from the transmission case if needed. (former Allison field service tech)

You're going to have to remove the valve bodies from the old channel plate along with the separator plate. there will be a gasket on both sides of the separator plate that can be a PITA to remove. The new seal/gasket kit should come with a new seal for the wiring harness stand.

Thanks, I glad to hear what looked like that could be how it might work it is good to have someone with knowledge confirm. I tried Google and YouTube; many articles or videos and could not find, or zoom in enough to validate.

Those are pressure taps used for troubleshooting. C1 is C1 clutch pressure. C2 is C2 clutch pressure etc.
