Nice job on the samples. My only suggestion would be to use the Ultimate analysis for the Allison. My last Allison came back as a 1, and recommended to continue to drive and re-sample after 7K mi. I pulled samples from Onan, Cummins, and Allison, before I signed. Now I just test the Cummins and do the Ultimate for the Allison, once a year. You can Also go to the topic Former Allison Transmission Fluids Engineer and ask questions about your samples from the owner of JG.

I do use analysis on the tranny fluid, which is a lot more expensive and harder to change. I'm still on the original synthetic ATF in my Allison (12 years and 77k miles). It gets new filters every three years and maybe a gallon of new fluid with each filter change.
I think this is the best plan. :-)
